Congrats to the very lucky winner and of course Publix would sell the winning ticket. In November 2012 the jackpot was $587.5 million without California. Last night jackpot was $591.5 million and California was participating. Strange.

I guess in the big picture, CA is irrelevant?

    Funny how most jackpots are a few million more than estimated. Yet a Florida winner gets a lower than estimated jackpot. Those Florida politics know what the hell they are doing, in the manner of 9.5 million plus. Where did it go???

    But hey whats a few million when you talking $595.5 million.

      $600 million was a round number estimate of how many tickets would be sold.

            Would not the cashout be lower with a lower than estimated jackpot.

            you keep the 282,675,000 figure as the cashout

              Don't know where you're getting your information about politics from, but you're wrong.

              Whenever the MUSL gives a figure out, it's an estimate of what the jackpot may be. It's not etched in stone  that their figure will be spot on.

              If you'll look back at some of their estimates they have been slightly higher, but occasionaly they're lower such as what happened last night. It has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with politics whatsoever.

              Total jackpot prize money last night was    590.5 Million.

                TYRANNY is when you win miilions, and are forced by MUSL, to have a press conference, regardless of  SAFETY AND SECURITY CONCERNS, OR PERSONAL WISHES.  YOU just won millions of $$$, and still they think you ain't  S***, because you are not free to decide what you want. PUBLICITY OR NO PUBLICITY? You and not the lottery should be the one to make that decision. THIS IS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.

                        Oh well, back to focusing on the Ohio ($35.9 mil) and Michigan ($5.4 mil) jackpots...Yes Nod

                        Congrats to the winner; help some folks out who you love or even those you don't know but need it. You've been handed a tremendous gift, with an amount that can take care of all your wants/needs and generate positive things for many others.

                          Saying NO does not require "luck" and you don't need a financial team to pick up a check.

                          I laugh every time someone suggests the winner needs "an excellent team of financial advisers" when the winner just needs a map to lottery headquarters.

                            Lawyers all over Florida are collapsing from over-undulation.

                            Early reports suggest that many lawyers in the Tampa area will need pelvis transplants.
