Who would you share with?

Well, I have 16 relatives and a domestic partner to start.  But even if there were a dozen or more jackpot winners, there would be plenty for me.  In fact, I'd be quite happy with a second place, for that matter, though the relatives wouldn't get much in that case.

    "Single ticket winner"..... Is that the opposite of a married ticket winner?

    "Single ticket winner"..... is actually a MISNOMER. Any jackpot sold in the good ol' US of A is shared between-the winner and the feds, and/or the state, and/or the city or municipality. The best way to look at it is........a married person living together, buys a jackpot winning ticket, decides out of greed or whatever, not to tell the spouse. The spouse finds out, sues, and an A-HOLE judge awards the whole jackpot to the spouse who sued. The spouse that won the case, now divorces the greedy spouse that actually won the jackpot in the first place, without any fear of sharing the loot as part of marital assets. NOW, THATS WHAT I CALL, "SINGLE TICKET WINNER". Deep but total BS.

      That sounds like a real nice gesture but once you start giving all of them money how will you be able to stop giving them money without going broke or having them hate on you?

            Well, it seems like a giant Jackpot, but it appears that practically everyone on this website, hundreds of people, will all win it and it will be so divided that it will become small.

            Just kidding...

              Another week of Mac & Cheese and Dollar menus, will pale in comparison if you manage to win 1st/2nd price. Sacrifices must be made. It is part of the process and the win gets to be even sweeter.

                I don't remember ever seeing more than 2 winners for a PB jackpot.

                    With the number of tickets being sold I think there's still only about a 50/50 chance someone will win.

                          A $400,000 jackpot will make a very nice birthday gift on Wednesday.  Yes, siree!  I'd even be willing to share.

                            Hopefully, you might get that chance Uff. However, don't short change yourself, you omitted a few zeros in your number.

                           

                                Best luck to ya.

                              Yes, that's true! THEY won't pay any taxes, but YOU will have to pay some of the taxes (you can only get a charitable tax deduction on a portion of such a large donation (you cannot deduct more than 30% of your income)--the rest is taxable)

                              However, it will be worth it on your part, because you will be doing a selfless, wonderful thing!!! Good for you!!!
