I just wished winners could split the jackpot and take a portion in both cash and annuity, especially when it's over $200M.

It's not like the lottery is the only place you can get an annuity. There are thousands of insurance companies that sell annuities. If you want fixed income, you can also buy 10 year or 30 year treasuries. If you won the jackpot, you can take the cash then use half the prize money to buy an annuity or treasuries.

      Looks like the €190 million will all go to one ticket sold in Portugal.  Wow!

        Portugal is one of the 3 European countries that tax lottery winnings.

              It's actually not a bad ideal. Second place would pay alot more then what we have now. It would be like a modifed Monopoly game.

                All very interesting but think it does not affect most  of us here,unless we are in Europe to play.

                What?
