        l love it. Come to think of it,  l did throw out the suggestion of whether it's a good idea to join a pool or not for that particular jackpot.  At least these guys were listening. .Big Smile

         Enjoy your reward folks- you earned it.

          Wow and they claimed that prize really fast. 

           

          Very interesting and I guess if that is what they want to help boom their economy yes.  Good reference I will say.   Great terms with their company person so that is cool.

           

          I wonder if they had a backup plan with the money coming into them.  In other words lawyer,  accountant, financial advisor.  I don't like to hear that someone screwed something up.  If you all know what I mean.

          l wonder what is the waiting period to actually have those lottery payout Benjamins in your hands in Tennessee?  Out here in "Sunny California" it's 8 weeks plus. So one could " claim fast" but receiving your payout is dragged out- we talking..... S  L O W L Y.

                  Not a bad take. I would rather see 20 people split this amount of money than just one or two people, this is good.

                    This is the 3rd Powerball jackpot winning ticket that is a California Super Lotto Plus pick in the year 2016!

                    I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Powerball to win the largest Powerball Jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!

                      Did they take the cash or annuity?

                      pleased for this group :) 

                      Smart to wait on leaving the job. Until that check clears, things will still need paid.

                      may they enjoy life in good health .

                        Cash payout ($254.7 mil. / 20 = $12.7 mil.).

                         

                         

                        Congrats to the winners! Maybe the guy who needs a car will tell us what car he buys. I will speculate:

                            Includes video report

                            By Todd Northrop

                            A group of 20 co-workers are the winners of Saturday's $421 million Powerball jackpot on a ticket sold in Tennessee.

                            The employees of the North American Stamping Group in Portland, Tennessee, play the lottery twice a week, buying at least 60 tickets and usually rolling any of their winnings into the next drawing. While they said they would be playing again, they aren't investing the $254.7 million lump sum this time around.

                            Each of the "Tennessee 20," as they quickly dubbed themselves after the big win, will take home about $12.7 million. The total revenues for North American Stamping Group were about $103 million in 2015.

                            One of the group said at a press conference at Tennessee Lottery headquarters that the company's president asked if all 20 would be quitting immediately. While some of the employees are indeed taking early retirement, all promised their boss they would stay on long enough to train replacements.

                            "This money is going to be a blessing for so many people," one of the winners said, noting that while all would be spending some on themselves, all also had charity plans for some of the cash.

                            And at least one of them has some auto repairs to make.

                            "I was on my way home (from Nashville) last night and my 'Check Engine' light came on. I don't have to get frantic about that anymore," the man said.

                            This is the sixth time the winning Powerball ticket was sold in Tennessee and is the 200th time a Tennessee ticket netted at least $1 million.

                            "All this time playing has been fun, but I never truly thought we would win," said Amy O'Neal, the group's spokesperson. "It's still sinking in, but we're having a blast."

                            The winners, from 13 different cities in the mid-south, primarily handle sales and quality control at North American Stamping Group, an auto parts manufacturing plant.

                            The lucky ticket was sold at Smokeshop, 711 Scottsville Road, Lafayette, Tenn. Owner Joyce Gregory was on-hand to receive a $25,000 selling bonus and to join Amy, a long-time loyal customer, the other winners, family members and Tennessee Lottery staff members.

                            Immediate plans varied — from a vacation in Italy, helping family with medical bills, sending children to college and purchasing new vehicles — but one thing was unanimous: the desire to help others.

                            "This group has a heart of gold," said Steve Huffman, who lives in Macon County. "They always have and they always will."

                            The prize is the second-largest in Tennessee Lottery history. In January, a family from Mumford won $528 million, splitting the record $1.58 billion jackpot with winners from California and Florida.

                            Tennessee Powerball winners

                            Saturday's Powerball jackpot win is the sixth time a player from Tennessee has won. The previous winners are:

                            • $528.8 million jackpot won by a Munford family in January 2016, who split the $1.58 billion world-record jackpot with winners in two other states.
                            • $259.8 million prize won in Knoxville, June 2014
                            • $144.1 million prize won in Antioch in November 2015
                            • $50 million won in Knox County, March 2015
                            • $25.5 million won in South Pittsburgh, March 2005

                              .

                              Yes. It would be more than enough for me, as well.

                              A very nice house, somewhere in Californy,

                              Harley  (Though I recently bought a bike. And it's not a Harley, but I love it.),

                              A Porsche to race, AND a daily driver

                              A couple donations

                              Roll Eyes let me see if I got this straight ??

                               

                              XL house in Caliporny aka the land of quakes 50+ brush fires,landslides,drought and other freaks

                              harley ,but you have a bike

                              a porsche to race on weekends and a daily driver 

                              and have money to donate

                              ===========

                              sounds to me,

                              like even if you did win you'd still be whining and bching about something and wishing you'd never left home
