Who is Richard?

Also can I say FML lost again what else is new? LOL...........I had a chance to win in 3 states PA/NJ/NY bought in all 3 states since I live in PA, work in NY, and take a train to work from NJ. Been playing for years. (Oh well my time will come.) lol

Still SHOCKED that ONLY 1 person won. They should really claim through a trust.

"They should really claim through a trust."

I don't know how claiming through a trust would benefit the Florida winner or winners in terms of protecting their identity.

"Can Lottery winners remain anonymous?

No. Florida Lottery winners cannot remain anonymous. Florida law mandates that the Florida Lottery provide the winner's name, city of residence, game won, date won and amount won to any third party who requests the information; however Florida Lottery winners' home addresses and telephone numbers are confidential."

      I can't wait until the lottery offices are open on Monday and the winner(s) come forward.  This should be interesting.  I hope whomever wins could really use the money.  Then again, who couldn't use $282,675,000 (the cash value in Florida after taxes)? 

      I could definitely put that money to good use.  Wink Banana Sun Smiley

        This person should get a name change.

          David Smith would be a good name change. The news papers would have, "David Smith wins Powerball." They would be almost impossible to find. A negative would be a name change would delay the claims process by a few months. I don't think I could wait that long.

            Meanwhile, I'm glad I don't live in Cali, The 2 California second-prize winners will each be awarded $2,309,228 while last weeks second-prize winners won $256,317.

              Winning $2.3 million without having to buy the powerplay is a great outcome but the winners from the other draw that got $256K got the short end.

                  $590.5 million is the annuity value. If the winner chose the annuity, the cash value is invested on behalf of the winner over a 30 year period and the sum of all the annual payments would equal $590.5 million before taxes.

                  If the winner takes the cash option, they get the money at its present day value.

                      I was just going to post that link. In the American games the advertised jackpot amount is the annuity value before taxes. Europeans and Canadians have the best lottery games. For their games, the advertised jackpot amount is the cash value after taxes.

                        I see. Sooo how come we as players cant see how much the lottery took in for the powerball? Or can we and trust me the money existed they prob took in over a billion in sells. That cash option was tiny compared to how much they took in now the jackpot is back to a little pot

                            1 ticket, from a new comer State! Oh my!. Well, I can eat humble pie with gladness. I was extrememly wrong about just 1 ticket winning.Green laugh.

                           

                            Congratulations to the winner/winners.  Oh my, how are they feeling this very minute? Oh, the suspense! Florida, you have set the bar!

                           

                           

                          Hurray!.

                          No Florida has had Powerball for awhile. Just check the Powerball website to see FL has had previous PB winners. New to MM, but Gov. Chris Christie and VA won that. On a Sid note, I think I will just not read any news articles about lottery odds next time it gets big. I hate that I got psyched out of playing my lucky numbers!  10-13-14-22-52 and 11 were numbers I play regularly until I read a stupid article that listed one of those numbers. So I changed them up. Oh well, we shall never know who won since winners can claim without a press conference in FL.

                          Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                          The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!
