TEXANS GONNA WIN! WOOOO!

    TEXANS

PS - Did anyone ever tell you, tnlotto, when the Oilers moved to Tennessee, "This Buds for you"?

I hope a "Texan" (not the football team) wins the jackpot. Especially THIS Texan! LOL.

I think I would get a few hundred acres in the heart of the hill country and watch the world go to pieces.

CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

A DOLLAR AND A DREAM (OR $2)

    Any Texan will do, but either you or me would be best.

      Okay, I'll call you crazy. 

      I don't get this fast spreading communist mentality of one group of people trying to tell another group how much is too much for them to have. I'm not sure there is actually anything more stupd than that. 

      If YOU don't want that amount of money then the smart thing would be not to play. Only play those lotteries that have a top prize of $250k - $1M. Go ahead and limit yourself, riduculous for you to try to limit others.

      What he/she (Teddi) said!!!!

      I Agree!

        This one is going to Ohio, maybe you can  buy those acres next round. :)

              Call me crazy but I think it's just stupid to have one huge prize.   I understand that's the purpose of the Lotto but I think the players would be better served with more opportunity.  I know nobody plays the smaller jackpots like they do these monsters but it's just a waste as nobody needs that much money.   Just my opinion.

              Perhaps pick3 is more inline with your logic.

                  Then just play the smaller games and leave the Large Jackpots to us LOL

                      Great post Teddi.  I assume wwwbuktn is trolling the board.  I'll take a crack at this "spreading communist mentality" you speak of.  The INFLATION caused by our Federal Reserve Bank to pay for all the "goodies" the voters want is slowly eliminating capital formation for small businesses and jobs for the middle class. This is eroding the middle class which brings out envy.

                        I"ve got 2 tickets of my own, and my club has 4 Powerball tickets. We also have 3 MegaMillions and 2 Louisiana Lotto tickets. MegaMillions is a $130million and Louisiana Lotto is at $1.325 million, which is higher than usual.

                        The Powerball is probably going to higher now that there's a buying frenzy going on.

                          I Agree!What makes some people think that $400 million dollars is enough for anybody?It isn't enough for me!

                          Always think big!

                          But $400 million cash payout (not annuity) and AFTER taxes might just do it for me. LOL.

                          I think that's the level I can have anything I even dream of wanting and still not have to say 'no' to any family member, friend, alma mater or favorite charity. Ever. Everyone wins.

                            Looks like you have covered all the angles P6- good for you.
                            Would winning this or a part of this jackpot make you " freer?" This is not a trick question. .

                            * With all due respect: California is way overdue for its first PB win, your combined pleas for this jackpot to end up there is greatly appreciated. California sends its thanks in advance.
