Reread my post.I said that I was happy for the three winners.Of course winning is better than not winning but I'd still be pissed if I had to share the jackpot with two other people.I play to win the whole enchilada not a third of it.

...I'd still be pissed if I had to share the jackpot with two other people.

BS Really? $149M not enough for ya? Tell me it isn't so?

    I rarely buy Powerball tickets. So I don't really get excited often and I just like to see multiple people win on big jackpots so the wealth is spread. I know that is unpopular opinion here, but that's just how i feel. Smiley

    Ugh! Spread the wealth...even when just one person wins, the wealth is spread. Just look at the number of jackpot lottery winners that are broke less than 10 years later! I call that spreading the wealth, be it through illicit drug or sex buys, expensive houses, cars, toys, clothes, jewelry, collectibles, and trips for the winner, family and friends. I prefer to see juson a single winner hit the jackpot...it is called karma because when I win, I want it to be the only winning ticket.

    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!

      Finally I see a winner for Tennessee on the list.

      It was a 5 number match for a million dollars.

      Betcha it was the Dragon Lady.

      Any Jackpot MM or PB ever been won with a Tennessee ticket?

      I wonder what the total jackpot wins for all states are.

          BS Not for you to judge JonD. People live with their own choices and their own limits. As long as they are within the laws, it is none of your business and not for you to judge or bully your ideas onto others. Last I checked, there is not a limit on wealth nor a limit on dreams of wealth in this country. Although I do understand there are many 'share the wealth' folks who think there should be. 

          For me personally, I would prefer to be the single winner of a jackpot regardless of jackpot size because that is what I play for, the jackpot, not 1/2 or 1/3 of the jackpot, or some limit that some unknown to me person decides is enough. I'd not be 'pissed' if I did split a jackpot, though. 

           

          Besides, the winners are not getting $149M unless they take the annuity, and they will not see $149M anytime soon. Cash option comes to just over $86M each before taxes.

              We were speculating this morning that maybe one person in NJ bought two of the same set of numbers.  Initial reports were not saying if the winning tickets were quick picks or not.  I usually buy my tickets in advance and sometimes if we will be traveling I will have to "reinvest" before my current set of numbers expires.  I also know people who get hunches that do that (I think I also saw a story about a woman in VA who has won big money doing that).

              Anyway, I was initially sad that I didn't win but then realized hey, there is always Saturday and $40 million is actually as useful in meeting my goals as $448 million.  Sun Smiley

                  It's exactly the "pissed" part that I was calling BS on, Piaceri. And don't try to lump me in with some "spread the wealth" manufactured outrage, that's not my stance.

                  You yourself say you'd not be "pissed" if you had to split the jackpot. That is honest and I believe that.

                  But for someone else to claim they'd be "pissed" right now if they had to share $448M with 2 other winners. Well, let's just soften that so say:

                   ROFL Green laughCrazy

                  Powerball rules say:

                  Prize money allocated to the Jackpot Prize category will be paid on a pari-mutuel basis, divided equally by the number of plays determined to be winners of the Jackpot Prize.

                  If someone doesn't understand and accept the rules that the Jackpot prize is pari-mutuel and split amongst multiple winners, then don't play.(and don't complaint afterwards)

                        The winner from Minnesota has already claimed their prize!  That was really fast!  Congratulations to all three winners.

                          Are you suggesting when he buys that many tickets they should be for his friends and neighbors too? What?

                            What a range of emotions he must be feeling today. (but I'll bet "pissed" is not one of those... Smiley)
