    At least Indiana is on the list.

    Try and find Tennessee.

    We're way overdue.

    Waaaaaaaaaay.

      I think the media only Highlights the Ones that dont fare that well. Who Knows. Hopefully whoever they are, their winnings have been able to be a blessing to themselves and others.

      Well Edwards did show up on a couple shows/documentaries, so that kept up to date with him after he got some stardom

        True. Maybe there's some correlation between those that seek and bask in the limelight and their ultimate fate?

          I see that West Virginia is on the annuity list @ #19 that must be Jack Whittaker, that doesn't show on the CV list,

          I guess it did'nt make the top 25.

          Also I see Jersey on the list 2 times in 2007, if I remember right these 2 wins were  in cape may county (next south to me)

          and have not anything bad about those winners.

            Jack Whittaker's cash value prize was $170,505,876 so it should be ranked #17 on the CV list.

              Someone (of course I see myself being the blessed winer!!!!!) or someones, will have an awesome Christmas and new year.  I think MM has a few more rolls in it.  It will crack the top 10 in jackpots and cash values.

                  A billion dollars for a Christmas jackpot would be really cool!  That's my Christmas wish.  I want to be the sole winner of the billion dollars Mega Millions jackpot.  C'mon Santa.  I've been good this year!  I'm ready for early retirement!

                    Those people who lost their jackpots and ended up broke had some serious character flaws.  Some of which may or may not include greedy family members and/or friends, a lack of education, a lack of sound legal and financial advice, a tendency toward showing off and bragging, a proclivity towards strippers, drugs, alcohol, expensive cars, shopping, etc., and the inability to say "NO!" Bash

                      BananaI like the way you think SHOWMONEY. I'm right there with you on this one. I've been waiting for the first Billi pot for a long time. Hope it doesnt dissappoint. Lets watch this mega climb and climb before sending a the luckiest person in American to the bank. Good luck to all...but not too much luck, afterall i'm still in it to win it!!!

                        True. But lets not knock 'em too much. We all have our shortcomings....some just happen to be worse and more visible than others.

                          This jackpot is not growing fast enough. Only a $34M bump for crying out loud.

                          They only sold about $38 million worth of tickets, and it looks like they dumped nearly all of the sales into the jackpot to try to get people playing.

                            Where did you get that figure? It says $49 million in sales
