I hope the winner steps forward and claims the cash value jackpot.

 The winner now needs Asset Protection using wise counsel.  I would first purchase Umbrella Insurance also called Excess Liability Coverage. Then ask your counsel about LLC's,Limited Liability Company. Place your Living revocable Trust inside the LLC box plus all your winnings. To cover the death tax you could purchase an ILIT, an Irrevocable living insurance trust.

 To help co-ordinate all these professionals you hire you could ask your CFP, Certified Financial Planner to be that person.

 Hire a Medical Doctor and have him/her do house calls. Hire mental health therapists. Hire money therapists. Money psychologists.

 Now comes the fun part. Investing your wealth to earn more of a free cash flow. There are so many opportunities for this winner.

 This winner's adventure has just begun!Dance

    Relax everyone!

    Everybody knows that the first thing a major jackpot winner does is to contact "The Today Show".

    We'll all find out everything at 7AM on Monday morning.

    It is standard procedure for any major jackpot winner to fly to the Today Show in New York City before they claim their winnings at the lottery office. Everybody knows that there is no way the winning ticket will get lost or damaged on its way to The Today Show.Approve

        Very tempted to drive to Indiana now and buy Powerball tickets.  Indiana is now "Can't lose"

        We bought some a couple of hours ago near the Casino (Powerball) in New Albany, IN.  You watch  that baby climb rapidly  if no jackpot tonight and MM will just creep along.  At this rate I'd take anything!

          Have you checked yours??

          I see that Cambridge City is close to the Ohio border off I70; maybe it wasn't even an Indiana resident...time will tell!

             I noticed that California did not win the jackpot. Rumours about the lottery being fixed are just that "rumours".

             We will see how smart the winner/winners are in how fast they cash in. Will they claim their fifteen minutes of fame?

             I sure hope that it is Saylor Girl!!

            Hiding Behind ComputerNo, no, no!  They knew that we were on to them so they let another state win.  Where the fix was in this time was the 2nd prize level on down.  They knew that there would be a lot of 2nd place and lower winners so They asked Eddie to make it a 2x for the megaplyer instead of a 5x so they could save several million on the lower prizes.

             

            At least that is what I told myself when I only won $2 last night.   Green laugh

             

            Seriously, congratulations to the jackpot winner and everyone who even got a few bucks back!

                Mr./Ms. PickToWin,

                I think many/most of us can relate to your frustration.
                I often think I'm the most vulnerable, of anyone, anywhere.

                But yeah, I agree. Especially, when there are potentially 7.3 billion people who were competing
                for the prize. But, it happened. No one else duplicated the winning number, besides Indiana.

                So, I too have had that sour feeling in my stomach since around 12:50am, this morning.
                I didn't even want breakfast this morning.

                I certainly don't need all that cash, only $1 million, but I had my month of dreaming.

                It turns out I won absolutely nothing, zip, nada, niks (Dutch), tipota (Greek), meiyou (Chinese),
                asgjë (Albanian), rien (French),  nichego (Russian), kitu (Swahili), ingenting (Norwegian), nani mo (Japanese).

                Mr. Groppo

                • Don't chase the numbers you play.
                • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
                • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.
                          (so far, though, I've yet to win any significant lotto prize)

                  no win here.

                  I too was in disbelief for a couple hours

                  so I decided to mow the lawn instead. the yard never looked betterCool

                        I was thinking the other way around. Highly unlikely for another multi-state jackpot hit in Indiana at least for another five years considering the size of the MM jackpot.

                        It's a Cinderella story

                            many people need or want that kind of money....which is why the frenzy kicks in when the jackpot gets that big....

                             

                            If you are mad that it does not get spread out more often...

                            1. Maybe petition the lottery commission to set it up that way (I won't sign it...)
                            2. OR, just DON'T play at all.

                            I don't understand why people get their knickers all in a bunch about a single winner of a large sum...that IS the nature of the game --> many, one or none at all.

                             

                            Congrats winner or winners (if it's a group), it's YOUR money now. Do with it what you will. Don't feel pressured to donate to charity just because people EXPECT you to do so, it's not a precondition to win AND the money you spend on your ticket is already set to go to a good cause in the state anyone of us buys a ticket....

                             

                            Good night!
