Well said.Congratulations to the Winner/ Winners.
Perhaps we can all look at it this way: it was not our turn to win!

I can look at it this way, if you don't mind.....  It was my turn to win, my timing was just off a bit.

    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.

    I Agree! I wonder how much Pedro paid for someone to tell him "pay your back due child support"?

      Only $464 million in tickets sold, that's lower than the drawing in November ($563 million, without California) and the Mega ($651 million from $1 tickets) from last year. I think the novelty of $400 million+ jackpots is wearing thin. There was a 26.56% chance of a rollover last night, so a billion dollar jackpot could happen still.

        Congrats to the winners! People talk about playing in office pools. I am greedy , i don't like sharing! But anyway , My state on North Carolina is long overdue for a huge jackpot winner. So i hope my time is coming or someone from my state as well!

          I would rather share than win it alone.

            I Agree! I'm surprised there was a winner.

              I wonder when the next mega jackpot when , i wonder is it best to buy your tickets early or maybe close to the drawning.  Or doesn't it really matter?

                If your buying QPs it kinda like a slot machine. When its right its right.

                  If i had won , I would let the legal system play , lawyers , accountants ( good ones). Then move to a horse town or move to another country. Spread the wealth to my close inner circle of friends and family , in my family very few. Then deuces to everybody else!

                    You're absolutely correct if the winner has no other intention other than to spend their winnings.

                    Growing your wealth while minimizing your tax obligations is  just plain boring and frowned upon by most as a waste of money. Lottery winners have gotten by before they won so why would they even want advice from any attorney or financial advisor.

                      I guess for those who are obsessed with "growing wealth" it really doesn't matter how much wealth they have, they will continue to be obsessed with "growing" it.
