Each member would get about $38,000 a piece...

$265,000,000 / 7000 = $37,857 give or take...

You forgot about taxes. Withholdings are activated at $5,001 and above. 38,000 minus 25% federal comes out to $28,500 and that's not even taking into account state taxes.

    It will not be won until ALL 258,890,850 number combinations are sold.  Bank on it!

      Is that due to the current investment options of MUSL? That's never quite clear to me. It shouldn't, because cash isn't invested Thinking of...

       

      Good luck to anyone who is in it to win it. Gonna be a looong week end for a winner, what with the 4th coming up and lots of alcohol coming down.

      Perhaps you think they buy the annuity with jelly beans?

          Well well well.  FL & VA both won $1 million in Powerball last night, another FL player smartly did Powerplay for $2 million.  Both states border the Atlantic Ocean, not stating the winners live by the sea.

            It does seem to be a trend that ONLY states that border the oceans or Great Lakes can win.  Tennessee is the one real exception to that though.

              I might be wrong but I'm pretty sure not even the billion dollar Powerball got that many combo's sold. They said on the news at the time that only 83% of PB's 292M combo's  were used.

                  No. Occasional players rely on the news and other media to know when the jackpots get big enough for them to jump in and the jackpots aren't getting 2 seconds of coverage anywhere.

                    Perhaps you'd realize I was talking about the cash amount, which isn' purchased in any way, jelly beans or uppity remarks?

                      l am all for giving Brownie Points- but you not going to get any, at least not from me.My original statement stands."  Winner from a State bordering the Ocean." It's not that complicated earthling.

                      I didn't Ace kindergarten for nothing. 

                      Why are you so scared to mention said state?

                        Really,  why hasn't wisconsin ever had a mega million jackpot winner yet?  They don't have any mega million jackpot winner listed on their winners page.

                          ..because to quote a line from a movie or book  l once read " Such a display of power would be embarrassing."

                          Good to see you are alive & well in this world picker.

                            Has it occurred to you that perhaps there are too many losers in your State- l mean your Governor ran for high office and look what happened? They do say that fish rot from the head down.. Oh well.

                              I was mostly referring to Michigan.

                              Michigan has nearly as many winners as New Jersey.
