 I would like to split this jackpot with my mother so we can have a nice party.  Of course I can share with someone else too and my mother for a three way split $150 million for me and mom and $150 million for someone else.-weshar75

Mr./Ms. Weshar75,

I wish to apply for that opportunity.  We'll need to get in touch, if it happens.

On the same note, I make a similar offer to you, in the unlikely event that I win it.  But, I offer you .5 million of the prize, should I be the sole winner of this coming Wednesday's Powerball.

And, how I need to win it. Yes, I know, everyone says that, but I really do need it. Lotto has been a consistent focus for me, for a long, long time.

    Can't get excited about Powerball anymore. Terrible odds, $2 ticket price, and poor lower prize payouts make it one of the worst games to play...

      It's the same for systems players too since there has only been 23 drawings since the last matrix change.  They just play a line or two to just be in the game.

          "I would like to split this jackpot with my mother so we can have a nice party."

          How big a share, and how old is your mother? At some point in the future she's going to leave an estate, and if it's big enough the IRS is going to get a share of it. That means giving more than a relatively modest amount to parent isn't a good idea from a financial perspective. I'd suggest finding a balance between generosity to parents and the generosity to the IRS that may come with it.

                  his mother is older than dirt and wouldn't know how to start spending it anyway. the unbridled enthusiasm over powerball jackpots has waned considerably. they ruined it with the expanded matrix and cost.

                        l did read where Julie said she would stop by her former job from time to time to say "Hi".Personally l would invite her former pool players out to an expensive Dinner as a " Thanks for being friends" and give them all a payment gift without running into a " tax situation."

                          JP will likely be upped before the drawing, just saw someone put down three stacks at a c store on this drawing!  Lines for tickets are massively long too.  I'm gonna use a vending machine LOL

                            Please tell me where else you can buy something for set $2 dollars and return get $184,200,000. Dont worry ill wait. Its got to be hit by someone sometime. If you dont buy ticket you are guanteed to lose 100% of time. Ill gladly spend venting machine money to win millions. There are $20,$30, and $50 scratch offs that dont even sniff that kind of money.
