Cash value or jackpot, and before or after taxes?

Either. Just the amount you think would make you comfortable and relax your mind financially.

      Why are so many in these frenzy threads so hyped uo about the jackpot getting to $1 Billion? If they're not the one to hit it they'll have a level 10 hissy fit, level 12 if it's California or New York.

      WT2?

      What?

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

        It isn't about that, it's about seeing it get to that mark. Think about the odds of it reaching that point and about the odds of one person winning. It's always exciting to see the jackpot climb to a number it's never been before. And except for the few idiots who think the lottery is one big California conspiracy, it'll be about the person not the state. Who is going to claim someone cut the line, who's going to claim they were owed a share. Amazing stories come out of large jackpots too. Hopefully it'll be a feel-good uplifting story and not another Whittaker, Edwards or Shakespeare.

              Even in the highly unlikely chance that the jackpot crosses 1 billion dollars, I predict that the jackpot will no doubt be split among several people. But if one person would happen to be the sole winner, hopefully it's me..Smile

                      If it gets to $1B and if it's a solo winner, it will be a long, long time before that person ever knows another moment of peace.

                      Just my $.02.

                        All the more reason to keep the winners identities anonymous. When it gets that high I'll be getting my tickets from South Carolina and double down on that by claiming via a trust. The lottery doesn't care about the safety of its players so people need to do whatever they have to to keep themselves safe.

                          My poor state of Louisiana always remains behind here too. Never a winner like CA, MA. Ny, FL

                          Did you ever hear anyone from Louisina win?

                          These folk just think of Mardigrass or Jambalay!!!
