The PB annuity value will have to exceed $750 million if it wants to break the cash value that MM has at $471 million.

Just kidding, buy as many tickets as you are comfortable with. no more no less.

        Bought some tickets today and had an interesting thing... Here in Texas you have to choose whether you want cash or annuity at purchase. Cash always for me. Anyway, this is what tickets look like normally:

        normal

        Just before that, at a different location, my ticket printed like this:

        weird

        Crazy

        We also have to make the choice at purchase,

        easy decision, cash, always.

            hmm....  as i read the article i note:

             

            "In the meantime, lottery players dreaming about what $640 million means to them after taxes have been withheld can check USA Mega'sJackpot Analysis page, which provides the information for each individual state."

             

            640... and Todd... you trying to tell us something here? 

             

            GO POWERBALL!!!

                This is by far the largest Powerball Jackpot in their history. The world record jackpot was Mega Millions at $656 million shared by 3 winning tickets.

                    The first drawing sequence that Powerball has in California and the jackpot grows from what, 50 million to 600 million? How convenient. How timely.

                      The Federal tax obligation alone is almost $150 million! some folks out there will still think that is not enough of their fair share.

                      Our beloved Government will burn through that amount in 20 minutes.

                        Jesus first called them hypocrites, and then asked one of them to produce a Roman coin that would be suitable for paying Caesar's tax. One of them showed him a Roman coin, and he asked them whose name and inscription were on it. They answered, "Caesar's," and he responded:"Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's".

                          Closer to 2 minutes I'd say.

                              Hi Todd-

                               

                              You do an outstanding job running this site.  Especially in times like these.  So, I dont want anyone to go over the stupid mountain, and think Im criticizing you.  But there is a typo in the article.  See quote below:"In the meantime, lottery players dreaming about what $640 million means to them after taxes have been withheld can check USA Mega's  Jackpot Analysis page, which provides the information for each individual state.

                              Keep up the great work.
