    Please please Lord Make it so!!! :-).  I want LP to clean house on this one!

    Yeah it would be great to see any of us win something significant especially considering we make up maybe 0.0000001% of the total pool of players lol

        Ran some errands, got some gas, the clerk said sales are nuts, but not for gas lol.  He said "everyone is buying PB, including me, I bought one!"

        The grocery store had a line and people buying $20+ worth and more.  People were talking about what they would buy, one said "Oh I wont buy a huge house, just a modest one".  Now I thought, with this kind of money, you would buy a modest home?

        Now I have been having my own dreams on what this would be like, and what I would do and I can assure my new place would not be modest lol.  This is such fun.

        After what I have seen, the $$ being spent, the number of purchases and the lines with still a whole day and a half left to go, this WILL get to a BILLION.  And this is just my town I see.

          Keep in mind 'modest' is in the eye of the beholder.  My 11,000 sq foot home might be considered modest to someone in a 22,000 sq ft home.  Of course anyone with an 11,000 sq ft home probably thinks of my current  fairly nice suburban home as a shanty!  Smile

            Yeah, this is definitely hitting a billion, this is insane. I'm still only playing $10 worth.

                This jackpot really came out of nowhere, and in such a short time no less.

                  Everyone is pumped up, Even Uncle Sam is getting his paper works ready. He is not going to buy any tickets but still going to get his share of 25% or 39% depending where u live. How excited will this be if there was no tax . Banana

                  That's how it should be, no tax.  When I go to the County Fair and win a giant stuffed teddy bear I don't expect it to have missing limbs, ears, or eyes.  I expect the whole thing intact.  Lotteries should be the same....NO TAX on winnings!

                    You are very correct LottoLucy, I didnt consider that.  My idea of a modest home is completely different from you or the next person!

                    Certainly would like that chance to get a 11,000 sq. ft. shanty hahahahahaha.

                    Good Luck !

                        Is it true that New Jersey has a special lottery tax of ~10%? It's not on usamega.com

                          keep it going for sure it will reach a billion and let it be millions of winners thats what im talking about

                          If it does reach a billion and your wish of millions (10million) of jackpot winners comes true then it would be awesome to see them each get a $100 grand prize paid out over 30-years.....woohoo!!

                            Uncle Sam will get his share at 39.6% as the initial 25% is just a down payment. Must be nice to be able to pocket several hundred million and not even buying a ticket. The states that charge an income tax won't do so bad either as my state of NC will get almost $29 million if the sole ticket is purchased here Wink
