    Hi Janey, are you really rolling on the floor laughing in a pub? BTW Alpharetta is my favorite town. I'm moving there when I win. See you soon!

      The possibility of having a lottery Billionaire is akin to saying that everyone who makes $35k per year BEFORE taxes is a millionaire. Both scenarios are paid out over 30 years.

      Good luck to all those potential Billionaire to be.

          If I won the jackpot, I'd keep 10 milllion and donate the other 890 (minus taxes) to random people.

          I'm definitely random!! :-) So please consider me?!

                If you win $1 million, you will get maybe 380k after taxes as a lump sum. Maybe around 600k or something if you take the annuity.

                No this is incorrect, "The second prize - won by matching five white balls in any order - is $1,000,000 paid in cash (no annuity option)." Also all prizes are BEFORE taxes. So you would take home about $750,000 after taxes (at 25%) and about $700,000 total probably after all taxes the next year.

                  Not interested in watching the PB drawing in order to have a nice sweet dream before waking up Sunday morning and brought back to reality.

                  Really hope a few people from LP get lucky tonight.

                        If they bump it I'm buying 2 more tickets, 1 cash option, 1 annuity just so I can have a ticket that says $1,000,000,000.

                         

                        Good luck to all tonight!

                        You don't decide cash or annuity until you win, you don't pick it before the drawing.

                          lol! You bring back such sweet memories. I was a part of the search party at the McDonald's that week.

                            "If birthday numbers are drawn I wouldn't be shocked to see up to 25 jackpot winners."  That's why it's best not to play birthdays are anniversaries numbers, you will be sharing the jackpot if others win.   Better to get Q-Picks.

                            Yeah but if everyone did that and birthday numbers came up then they would be the sole winner lol. Regardless it does not matter and chances are still rare that more than a few will win. I would say no more than 3 or 4 tops.

                              In Texas, you pick at the time you buy your ticket. Cash or annuity. Vending machines are cash option only.

                               

                              I did buy one annuity. It says $900,000,000. Hyper That's $13m+ the first year. I'm okay with that.
