            I believe it's actually $133,356,750...

            The Wisconsin resident was referring to his net amount after the additional Federal taxes are paid. Only 25% is initially deducted for Federal taxes which is another prime reason why so many Lottery winners go broke. They simply have no clue that additional taxes will be owed when they file their returns.

                Anybody surprised that the jackpot hasn't been revised yet?  Figured it would have gone up a notch by now... not like MM is stealing any sales right nowSleep

                Nope, not surprised... I figure if anything they'll save the extra raise for Wednesdays drawing if  it doesn't get it tonight

                I wish I may, I wish I might...

                  yeah your right ppl i know gave up after the 500+ million PB jackpot cuz they put in alot so this time they only put it in a couple bucks lol.

                  My 9 year old brother just picked the #'s for me and that is as random as you can get. no 9 year old has ever won so let tonight be the first!!

                  My 3yr old picked one of my lines.. needless to say, they're all little bday numbers ;-)

                  I wish I may, I wish I might...

                    One reason why its even better to win at the beginning of year, so you can invest money in whatever which way in an attempt to pay off some of the taxes with interest... I'm ready!!! I think... :)

                        Well if it wasnt for other people wanting tickets and paying for me to go back out to the state line I wouldnt have that many.

                              yeah its a war zone at my local gas station. somebody dropped a set of tickets on the ground and they look good. so i picked them up. Lets say these won- would I automatically lose my payout if somebody said they are theirs (even tho there isnt sufficent proof) ?

                              GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE
