A very crazy Lotto Tuesday-Wednesday. The investment: two PB tickets with PP, two MM with MP, five Ohio Classic Lotto (46.4 mil), one Mich. 47 (1.75 mil). And for kicks an Ohio Rolling Cash (5 numbers, $130,000). Also in 30-person MM work pool...(did the math--bit over 2 mil each after taxes at current JP).

If everything rolls to the weekend...Drum

    I was wondering if they were going to raise the jackpot before the drawing again or if $400 million is going to be the final jackpot amount.-weshar75

      Road trip! With this win, you could hire a driver to do the driving of your $1m RV while you party in the back! Woo hooooo! Par-tayyyy! Party

        lmao, oh there will always be room for the ice cold buds, nothing wrong with a change of scenery from the bronx.  actually New York would be the place i'd spend a little more time, to see the city and upstate, hear it's totally different between the two

          Oh yes indeed, the party would definitely be in the RV!  Probably only sleep when the body finally said it can't handle any more, but then i'd be back up 5 hours later.  I know it's not the ideal amount of rest but how would i be able to rest when I have so much things to do and see.

              How I hope that many players can hit 5 of 6 so that they can walk away with a minimum of $1M pretax. The second prize does not cut into the jp money, does it?

              That money's gone fo ever

                  "I'm not talking about some $200,000 a year walking stiff and living comfortable.  I'm talking about liquid.  Rich enough to own your on jet.  Rich enough not to waste time.  50 or 100 million dollars buddy.  A player." 

                                                                                                                Gordon Gekko

                  With all due respect to veganlife125 for bringing up one of my favorite quotes, it begins:

                  "...I'm not talking a $400,000 a year working Wall Street stiff flying first class and being comfortable, I'm talking about liquid. "

                  And back in the '80s, $400k was worth a lot more than today. 

                  But at a net (after tax) lump sum of about $135 million (if it does not increase from the $400 million jackpot), earning only a safe 1.5% would get you a bit over $2 million per year.  If you can invest better than that (and hopefully I can), gravy!!!  Here's to being "a player"!!!

                  Thanks, Piaceri, for the land link.  I'm all in for a Texas win!

                  Now how to keep such a big win a secret (even from family - other than wife), yet still be able to enjoy it???....  Cover story, cover story, hmmm...

                    I just was reading that  Bil Gates is worth 72 Billion ....Thats 72 billion...so this would be like a little poker game for him to win...PartyUS FlagParty

                    Paraphrasing Chris Rock, but if bill Gates woke up to a  net worth of $400 million, he'd jump out a window. 

                    How insane is that?

                    I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

                    The odds are about the same.

                      Thanks All!  I am home from work now. That is about 3.5 miles from where I work...I work in NW, that is SE. I come through the Pentagon on the way home (and in the morning) and take a bus there or from there and they were on full alert while ago. The Pentagon has a major bus commuting area with hundreds or thousands of buses a day going through there.

                      Hopefully it was just one guy and they got him. At the Pentagon they would have got him much sooner. They killed a guy there in 2010 who starting shooting at a security checkpoint (about 10 yards from where I catch my bus).

                      Glad you are okay.

                      I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

                      The odds are about the same.

                        So, birthday/anniversary numbers? I can see it.

                         

                        I'm in for $5 - bought one more than usual and then went halves on another with a friend. C'mon numbers! Mama wants new shoes to stimulate the economy.

                            Bill Gates wipes his butt with 400 million. But to us average folks any millions will be just fine.
