    Would those who won 2nd prize for 1 millions get the whole 1 millions all at once before taxes?

      Uncle Sam has no problem collecting these 2 and others if one does not pay their fair share of taxes. Ask Nicholas Cage and Willie Nelson.

      Cage had his " Castle" repossessed and Willie- they removed speakers from his studio as part of the " you owe us" and have come up short.

        The second prize is not an annuity so you get the whole prize after they withhold 25% for the federal taxes and or about 5% for the state taxes. Most people end up with about 680,000 from the many happy stories I have read.

        That money's gone fo ever

          That is a nice house. I always notice it when I play golf as it's situated across the lake from my neighborhood. I believe it's owned by a former baseball player. It's quite a step up from the dream homes you previously wanted Wink

            i think i'm going to wait to get my tickets @the last minuteYes Nod

            I agree, I notice I do best when I buy my tickets no sooner than 6:30 PM the day of the drawing. Doesn't matter if they're my numbers or QP's. The tickets I almost never win anything on are the multi-draws I buy for the whole month. They almost never win anything. I'm quitting that after this month's tickets expire. Then I'll buy my tickets only on the day of the drawing as late as possible.

                don't get me wrong i have won BIG many times on Local States games running them 14days @ a time, but when it come to powerball & Mega i think there just is to many people playing so i'm gonna try getting them later in the evening day of drawing to see if that may mix up the numbers some.

                 

                Good Luck

                  Hi Jill, I can't believe you know this house in Orlando!! Yes, it is way above what I deserve but we're talking $216M!!!! I'm glad to hear it is on or near a golf course because that is what I want.

                  Price: $9.6M, 6bd, 13ba and 14,447 sq ft. For your interior viewing pleasure:

                  Orlando staircase Orlando kitchen

                  Orlando family room Orlando TV room

                  Orlando M.bedroom Orlando back terrace

                    I don't think a dollar is going to cut it for Powerball. One dollar buys you half a ticket. LOL

                      I noticed the same thing about the multi-draws!

                      I might buy my ticket on Saturday (the day before St. Patrick's Day) at 11:11am. Maybe, I will have the luck of the Irish (even though I'm not Irish, but my name is--I think), and then I can make a wish to win the jackpot at 11:11 :)

                          You may also have to pay the 3.8% medicare tax. Not sure of the exact rules on this.

                            It is strongly advised to sign the back of your lotto ticket after you purchase it to protect yourself from loss or theft.

                            If you don’t sign your ticket someone else can claim your lotto winnings. 

                            If you have lost a lotto ticket is it advised to contact the lotto you were playing and be able to provide them with information such as where and what time you bought  the ticket from and what your chosen numbers were (and often useful if you know what else you bought at the same time).

                              Not sure what you are talking about? The government takes out their taxes before you get the money so there is no issue of them coming to take any of these items if you don't pay your taxes, they have already been paid. You would only lose the house if you don't pay your property taxes and if you can't do that with $100+ million, then that is your own <snip> fault. Quite frankly it is your own <snip> fault if you don't pay any of your taxes regardless.
