the winning Powerball ticket for Saturday's $338.3 million jackpot was sold at a liquor store in Passaic. The liquor store will receive a bonus of $10,000 for selling the winning ticket.

I am sorry but $10,000 bonus is ridiculous. We have a lottery winner in CA who won merely $6.5 millions but the retailer from where the winner bought the ticket got $32,500 bonus check.

Imagine if the winner is also the owner and gets the 10k. Drinks are on him.

    She is a example of why I wouldn't want to be in a pool.

    Yeah, especially not with the Sweet Swine lady.

    She hides the tickets and can't remember where she put 'em.

      That sucks, must be annoying if you won 500M and then they come along and take all 150M straight away. I would rather it go to charity than them taking it.

      I Agree!

        Uhm yes....the IRS (Internal Robbery Service) gets 25% off the top then you owe them another 15 -20% at tax time....Gotta love the private bankers looting the world....<snip>s.  The IRS is the collection arm of the private Federal Reserve.  The "Federal Reserve" is about as Federal as FEDEX.

        15-20 %? You mean state taxes? If so it's less. I am still confused why she said 3% instead of 10.8% for NJ state taxes.

          Come hell or high water, jersey will collect 10.8%

          3% must be w/holding, the winner is a resident.

            Wow, that's good amount of bonus to the liquor store. For sure it will motivate them to sell more powerball tickets! :)
