        I guess this would break the world record for both annuity and cash value? The bigger 656 millions MM last year had 3 winners. This one only one winner.

        EDIT: if this is an office pool, then it doesn't break the record for a single individual.

              I would take the annuity. Judging from the payout table, it's good enough for me.

                Ya never know it might still be a lottery pool, we'll see when the winner or winners come forward.

                If it's a pool I wonder what the over/under will be on the number of disgruntled non-participants who'll try to sue to get a part (whatever the number I'd take the over).

                Congrats to the winner, for your own sake I hope you play it smart with the money.

                  2 CA winners won 2.3 Millions each and they didn't even pay for PowerPlay since it's not available in CA.

                  Lucky for them.

                    I just purchased my one ticket,  good luck everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                     

                     

                     

                    Happy spending to the "One Lucky Winner"

                    I purchased one ticket and didn't have one number, lmaoooooooooooooooooooo

                    Maybe I"ll keep playing these same numbers, since they were a quick pick from one of the biggest jackpots?

                     

                    Good Luck.

                    The Struggle is real!
