    Good luck on your win. You have been truly blessed.

    Sure would like to know how it feels getting a check for, or seeing $87 million deposited into my account.  Wonder how long before the reality of it hits?

    Congratulations winners.

      I wonder why people feel the need to say their life won't change, lol... of course it changes, no more dead end job, travel and true financial freedom

      Indeed. What is the point of playing the lottery if you don't intend it to change your life?

        He was quoted as saying "hopefully things won't change that much although we understand that it will". I agree with you that any major jackpot win such as this one will change your life whether you want to or not.

          Well, congrats to the winners. Nice to see they spent the time to get things in order before collecting. Yes, the lottery will change your life, but stay true to yourselves.

            Staying true to yourself might be easier said than done. Any major jackpot winner will have to contend with all sorts of "demons" such as long lost family members and freeloaders who feel entitled to a portion of your winnings because they bought a ticket as well. I personally have no idea how I would react if I was ever so fortunate.

              Neither do I know how I would react, but you can only try to not let the money change you. I would believe one ultimate goal, and probably the hardest would be to stay true to yourself. You can change things, own bigger and more homes, buy fancy cars, give more to charity, etc, and people around you may change. But it does not have to change your personality, or the person you are at heart.

              These two sound like lovely, smart people, so I hope they stay true.

                Roll Eyes time will spin a most curious yarn for these two ...but at least they're off to a good start

                  Hooray for the PA couple. $87M is a lot a money!! Bet the undesirables are already hounding them for some of the action. 

                  Hope they stay safe and secure.

                    Can you imagine going to the ATM making a deposit?

                      Oh, IPlayWeekly, that big sized check wouldn't fit.  Save the gas and wait for an official electronic transfer.  Ha ha.

                        Lol... I am truly happy when other people win.  I can't seem to break $35 (most ever won off one ticket)

                          Bye bye coach/budget/economy class travel and hello first/business class/5 star travel. When I win, I will proclaim all the ways my life will change. First, I will say no more 100 hour work weeks to make 6 figure income!

                          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!
