    The $62,829,000 in Federal Taxes on the current Cash Value is more than enough for the Federal Government to throw down the Black Hole of Government Waste

    Good luck to all & if I win please call your Congressman for your "fair share" of the Jackpot LOL

        I won't tell you what green beer used to do to me. You can probably guess.

            Curious how many here add on the PowerPlay or think it's not worth the extra buck...

              Actually, it would be $63, 795, 600. And I would be delighted to pay every cent of that $63, 795, 600 because it means that I would have $97, 304, 000 in the bank that I did not have yesterday. To me, that is more than my fair share of the jackpot given that a $2 investment earned me in one night more money than the average American would see in 100 lifetimes.

                We've debated the merits before and if I recall correctly the people who play a very limited number of tickets play it and those who play a lot of tickets would rather spend the extry money on more lines. I always play it, myself

                  I like your pragmatic demeanor as it relates to the probabilities of cashing in or getting stiffed if your shared ticket wins.

                  You must be an easy-going guy.

                    Sounds about right.

                    Well, I've got two with the PP. Might add another before the draw if I can find enough loose change. Big Grin

                      Yeah, I'm gonna get a couple extry lines about an hour before the draw tomorrow night.

                      I don't know why but the later I play the better I seem to do.

                          I was going to wait for its next roll to $350M+ but I think I'll pick 10 lines to play this Wednesday just in case someone wins it this time.  After fourteen tickets just missed winning it all with the correct bonus ball, anything can happen.

                          Now, RJOh, don't forget about that Ohio Classic. I'm taking that one while you figure out how to deal with the $113 million after-tax headache of this thing...Wink

                            You do make an excellent point. Keep up the good work.
