Congrats Al and Jackie. You could hire someone else to ride your tow truck in the 'cool' season Al!

    Well, it is about time that there was a decent size winning in Colorado again (yes, I live in Colorado).  I hope it does not take another 15 years for another grand prize to be won here.  But I am happy that they are consulting a lawyer on what to do with the money.

     

    And yes, I can understand that they suddenly have a bunch of "friends" coming out of the woodwork.  Hope they don't mess things up.

      Congratulations on your big, sole-ticket, Powerball jackpot win, Al and elated extended family! Group Hug

      I'm curious why you claimed BEFORE taking an emergency leave to spend two weeks to hire then brainstorm in a group with your wife, chosen tax attorney, and financial adviser (i.e., what name/entity to write on the back of the lottery ticket, etc.)?

              It is nice to see some older folks win.

              I hope that they have an enjoyable retirement!

                  Imagine how much weed they could Grow and the return on the investment in Colorado's 'free growth' policy! No need to ever buy another lottery ticket!

                      I'm still not playing the PB or MM, with those odds its guaranteed there's gonna be a lot more losersDance

                      AFter years of me and my parents playing MM and PB I'm going to do the same thing. We haven't won yet from these 2 big lotto games so I'm just gonna let someone else win it.

                      I am gonna focus on the small lotterys for now...

                          Congratulations to the winner. 

                          With so many members saying they can't get excited about a lottery jackpot under $200M, I'm always surprised when I hear of a state where the largest lottery jackpot ever won is less than $100M.  When it's in your hands, a million dollar jackpot is exciting.

                          I agree.  I mean the way I see it I would get excited winning a small prize in 6 figures simply because it's more than what I had!!!!  I can pay off some debt!!!

                            I wish he would have gotten into more details when he said "I sure got a lot of new friends now".  LOL  Hilarious.

                              I would be exceedingly happy with a million dollar prize.

                              That's why I play every MM and PB draw.

                              I do the same thing! 2.00 bucks on MM and 4 bucks on PB! you never know when it's going to hit you! Good Luck!!
