        The lotter. The websites has been down today.

        Unless  you go with their competitor. Make sure read the review of their competitor. If it legit.

            On <snip> or lottosend.com . They are unofficial courier services. They buy tickets or you and scan them. I make no guarantees for their trustworthiness. also they might be closed due to high demand.

                When will people learn that the Federal Tax is NOT 25% when you're dealing with these large amounts.  sirbrad you gotta give Uncle Sam 39.6% but you could get that reduced somewhat assuming a number of things that your CPA (which you will easily be able to afford and you will most certainly need) can probably save you some percentage points but every person's situation varies.  So you may want to change your matrix of payouts to 39.6% rather than 25% because you will NOT receive 14.6% of what you think you will.  With huge numbers like that 14.6% becomes pretty significant.

                No one said those were "final" deductions but it is close enough. Also you get more usually in the end than advertised and if you wanted you could earn way more with interest to cover the taxes. But would you really HAVE to? No. If you are focusing on taxes in this case you are simply a pessimistic thinker who shouldn't be playing. I am focusing on the ENORMOUS amount left after taxes which will still be WAY more than anyone else ever won and more than most have. Honestly with this amount of money I don't give a crap because I would still have over half a billions dollars net in the end. Whatever taxes they take I would never touch anyway, I would never even touch 99% of the  principle. I will gladly pay those taxes on this amount. I could also invest in tax free Government bonds to cover the taxes which would not even be necessary. I will still have several hundred million cleared. I would be set for life after the first payment and am very well prepared.

                  Get a signwriter to tag a "1" to the left hand side of the numbers.

                    Imagine you won that jackpot , and the lottery commission told you , we couldn't pay it? There excuse would be it would good bleed our states dry and we would have to file for bankruptcy? What would you do?

                    You file your claim anyway.  That gives a priority right in proceedings.  However, considering Powerball is made up of 44 states, if it would come to such a drastic action as all states failing at the same time, there is much more going on in the world.  Just curl up in the fetal position and wait.

                      I'm feeling a jackpot win coming my way!

                      False advertising.. Not really a billion dollar jackpot when you're ending up with less after you win.

                      Geesh!  Disapprove

                        Whoever wins can't spend it in their lifetime, like I said yesterday... generational wealth.  I am also happy for the 28 people who won 1 million matching 5 numbers.
