Marie Holmes's win can finally put to rest once and for all the conspiracy theory MYTH  about the lotto being "racially rigged". The other winner is from Puerto Rico. If these wins don't silence the conspiracy theories nothing will, their just stuck on stupid. Anyways congrats to all the winners and especially Ms Holmes. She definitely needed the money, and I hope she and her family have a great life enjoying it. She definitely has her head on straight.Party

Conspiracy theories are borne out of Sore Loser syndrome. People grasp at any argument to make the lottery some big bad monster because Lady Luck didn't favor them. Follow their line of thinking Lady Luck is probably a racist prude who favors the white elderly and rich casual players.

I like posts from conspiracy nuts. They liven up the threads - lol.

      The Govt takes their 25% off the Top BEFORE you get your cheque Sole- they then come back for their 2nd bite at that Apple the following year for a Total of 39 plus % Total..so they get about 40%..After that you clear and free unless as stated, investments etc etc etc..

      ***Check out the explanation on lottery taxes at the bottom of Usamega FAQ. It's all there.

      Yeah NC you pay 25% federal and then 7% but I think on whenever you win you could end up and probably will pay what you win and your earned income throughout the year as well...but seeing as how you won way more than you could and would ever earn legally in your lifetime, who cares what you pay in taxes just give me what's left LOL

        I noticed that the above story only mentions the Trust opting to receive a cash valve of $127 million but has no mention of any taxes with held.

        Also the same with the lady in North Carolina.No mention of federal and state taxes being with held.

        And  yet I read anything about who came forward in Puerto Rico claiming their check.

        Did anyone here read anything claiming the Puerto Rico prize I might have missed?

        Seems awful strange to me, don't you think.

          The winner in Puerto Rico claimed anonymously as permitted by lottery rules there. The winner in Texas claimed anonymously via trust. The North Carolina woman appears determined to let the entire country know who she is, having appeared recently on national television via Good Morning America. The North Carolina lottery withholds 25% federal and 7% state taxes by law.
