      I already have my tickets. 500 lines worth, purchased yesterday. Not going to buy anymore for this drawing even though I'm tempted to. If it rolls again Wednesday night, I'm going to have to open the wallet again to play for what will be the largest powerball prize ever. 

      If it rolls, I predict a $500,000,000 jackpot

      I am wondering how you are going to check all of those tickets?  Are you going to check them by hand or are you going to be taking them someplace and using one of those ticket readers?

      Good Luck!

        Wonder if this guy is playing for Wednesday's jackpot?

        Hint: He won the Powerball back in 2002 for $315 million, then lost it all.  Crying

         

        I Agree! That was one really sad story about hitting the jackpot...Jack opened alot of eyes to what NOT to do if you should hit a jackpot..hope he's doing ok now. I havn't seen jack in the news in a bit...

        lesson# 1.....tell  nobody you hit a jackpot

        lesson# 2.....find a GOOD lawyer that you can  TRUST

        lesson# 3.....Find a way to remain  anonymous for states that want to see the person that won

        lesson# 4 .....Go back to lesson #1

        lesson# 5....enjoy the good life

              For a lot less than $20m, you can have multiple mcmansions with wall to wall luxury. I'd have one home base, one on the beach, one on the lake, one in the mountains, and possibly one on large acreage. I'd probably rent a villa on the beach somewhere in the Caribean for a few weeks a year, too. I can do all that for less than $20m.

                    would you really? why would you need or want to take care of all that, or worry about someone else taking care of it. never mind the property taxes you would have to pay. you would get bored within weeks and your head would be spinning. i suppose you want about 7-8 vechicles and 2-3 boats and probably a private plane. no one needs or wants that much money.

                      Who are YOU to say who needs or wants any amount of money? And who says I have to explain myself to you? Are you the wealth police? What are you doing on a lottery website? 

                      Why don't you go back to squatting in the park, spray painting foul words on other people's properties, crapping on police cars, shooting drugs into your system, and raping your female fellow squatters.

                      Wow. What a ..... grrr

                        I don't have a need for 7-8 vehicles or any boats, but a Gulf-Stream G650 corporate jet for just $58 million, would fill the bill for me.

                        This would save me from long waits in terminals, and being frisked down every time I wanted to jet set to a new destination.

                        Of course I'd like to fly it myself as well, why let some other pilots have all the fun?

                          $320 million....this is the kind of jackpot people were hoping for when Powerball bumped the price of tickets to $2 each. The first few months when the jackpot would get up to around $70 million and then get reset seem to be long forgotten right now.

                          That's funny, because just five months ago, when Powerball was getting won repeatedly at $70 million and Mega Millions set a record, everyone was putting Powerball down like crazy.  However, now that Powerball is in rare jackpot territory and Mega Millions keeps getting won before getting to $100 million, everyone's jeering at Mega Millions, saying it rolls too slow.
