    Truly happy for all winners but really wanted to see what the outcome would have been if there was only one winner. Meaning would that person have done something significant to help his fellow man or just keep it all for him or herself and their families. Helping their fellow man refers to putting money in cancer or some other needed medical research, helping to feed and provide shelter for the homeless etc. All these things may have been a consideration if one won the jackpot but may not be if the jackpot have to be shared three ways!

    Congrats again to all winners!

      Woke up this morning and found out you made a monkey{mockery} of yourself?. So is life, you win some and you lose some. Don't despair.

        81 lucky players matched the first 5 numbers for a $1,000,000 prize the article says.

        But only 8 who played the Power Play are technically millionaires because of the taxes but the lottery likes to publish articles saying they've created 81 millionaires which hypes people up to play.  Heck they don't need to hype me up, I'd play anyways just show me the lottery store!

          Yeah, I'm pretty upset too. The one good thing is, two months from now we'll be right back where we were. Just have to keep trying.

          May the balls bounce in your favor!

              All 3 jackpot winning tickets are from non-anonymous states so we will know who the winners are for better or for worse.

                Yes, but they're lottery tax free states too.

                  With this being a random game it seems the jackpot winners are usually from California, New York or Florida.

                  Hmmm.

                    Anyone had a chance to win the jp. I hoped it would be more winners splitting the pot but at least it wasn't one person.

                    I wonder how many tickets were sold this time around?

                    Odds of 1/292M you'd think it would have gone out last time. I'm happy it went out finally, it's over...for now.

                    I hope many people learned a lesson...for those that went overboard and are fuming/cursing/crying this morning...how

                    about keeping everything in perspective next time? States love the big money making games. People go nuts and forget

                    the odds....and some spend too much chasing amazing odds.

                    I hope someone here made out alright.

                    Welcome to Trumps world, Madonna..taken out of context, one line..now how about you Shut the F up?

                      "Winner, winner, chicken dinner!"

                       

                      California has the biggest population (around 39M peeps) therefore it's never surprising that someone wins from CA.

                       

                      Florida is ranked number 3 on the list (around 20M peeps) in population, again not a surprise here. (note that New York has around the same amount of peeps)

                      and

                      Tennessee is ranked number 17 on the list (around 6.6M peeps) defied the odds both winning again under these new odds of 292M to 1 on November 4, 2015 ($144.1M annuity but took the Cash $89.7M) and then of course tonight!

                      Tennessee is the fairy tale story of recent. 

                       

                      Just for fun if someone won out of the U.S. Virgin Islands then THAT would be very impressive as they have just over 100,000 peeps living there.
