Sounds like they don't need to win a lottery to have good reason to up and quit without notice, being told what they can and can't do when it comes to the lotteries is reason enough.

I Agree!  I'd quit just to pi$$ the boss off.

    My employees are not allowed to have an office pool, because I cant afford to lose all my staff at once if they winROFLYes Nod$300 million dollars is more than enough for a small staff to up and quit without notice.

     

    pay less to win the most..Peace:)

    I told my boss i would use up the vacation time i earned first, then quit. Thumbs Up

        My office group has entertained the idea of funding peoples start up companies like Shart Tank....with one additional caveat that they themselves must help 2 other people within 10 years.  The thought of the snowball of people getting out of the rat race is awesome!

          haha you're right about being told what to do. It must feel like jail working for a person who forbids non distractive activity that brings employees together. Last year when we used to have a lottery pool at my work place and 14 of the 16 employees participated, my boss decided to join us because he knew he would have migraines training a new crew if we won. We didn't mind him joining us. Smart guy.

          That money's gone fo ever

              $2.00 can't buy anyone a gallon of gas but itself, but it can win a jackpot that can buy you all the gas you'll ever need.

                    A When the new powerball record was hit the prize amounts are pretty close to where they were then after 11 rollovers. Annuity is at 300 mill opposed to 270 mill then but the cash value then was 176 mill so its a little lower then that now but not by much. Last time it rolled to 364 annuity and 232 cash befor it rolled once more to the 591 annuity and 371 cash prize that was won. If it rolls Sat then it should go up to probably high 300s annuity and around 230 cash. What may boost this one a bit more is its the beginning of the month and the MM jackpot is low as opposed to being close to 200 mill last time. 2 more rolls and we will see the usual madness in buying tickets like the last time. Once you see JP get up to the high 300s or 400 or more then ticket sales really explode. While im greedy and want to hit this Sat or the following Wed if it rolls agaian if i dont hit then id like to see 2 more rollovers and the early estimate keep going up by the day as always happens when you start out advertising over 400 mill. While 173 million cash option is more then i would know what to do with I love it when they start advertising like 450 mill and within 24 hrs its already moved up 75 million or so then usually is changed agaian at least one more time befor the drawing. 2 rollovers and i figure we will be looking at a 600 million annuity JP. Would take anothe rollover after that to break the 471 cash that MM set awhile back. Let the madness begin and good luck to all.

                    Magnificent!!!

                    It is still a big cash payment!!
