It was 1 ticket, 5 lines: (play C was the winner)

I always get thrown for a loop when people refer to lines/plays/picks as tickets. I know it is common, but it just seems weird to me. Like when the frenzy hits and reporters go out to stores, and they say, "give me five tickets!" and the clerk hands then 1 ticket with 5 linesNo Nod

5 lines? Someone is going to be seeing helicopters. LOL

    Excellent. The suspense is over. Big congrats to the new minted winner. May he receive all the blessings God has to offer. I really hope Ira and this guy enjoy their new life style. Stories like this give me hope that ordinary people can actually win the jackpot. It's a long shot, indeed, but hey, you never know. ;)

        Wait how come he gets 173 million and the lady in Ga only 120million? I don't get it. Is it cause of taxes?

          Megamillions had another jackpot winner already and some players thought with a 5/75 +1/15 matrix the jackpot would roll at least three months before someone won again. Confused

            The first figure is before taxes, the other after taxes.

              People are always saying somethings half way and expecting other to know what they left out.  Saying one ticket with five lines or five tickets with five lines each might be a little clearer.

                  It's only easy for the winners to win, for the losers it's it's getting easier to lose.

                    Yes, and possibly no 2nd prize winners!

                      There was one $5 million winner from Pennsylvania.

                        Even USAMega couldn't believe there was already a winner:

                        1:03 am –  Mega Millions: There was no jackpot winner in the Friday, January 03, 2014 Mega Millions drawing...

                        It sure confused me when I saw $15 Million for the amount after seeing that. I don't know if I ever said it, but I had a feeling the next jackpot win wouldn't be nearly as big.

                            Both winners have to pay federal taxes, so Mr. Tran will not net 173 million dollars. But he will take home more money than the Georgia winner because California does not tax lottery winnings. Imagine that! But you will surely get taxed to the hilt on every other type of income. I will buy a ticket in California but I won't seek to live in California.

                            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!
