God's plan? It's down to probability & possibility, nothing to do with superstition. I'd have asked him why his god thought all the other players were unworthy.

    Since Christians are the majority here in the U.S. I can do the numbers and conclude that a winner is most likely a Christian. I am pleasantly surprised when I am wrong. 

     For example, I watch Amazon's "LUCKY". A one and a half hour video consisting of different winners. On February 16, 2006, A Power Ball ticket was purchased in Lincoln, Nebraska. The winners were a group of seven men and a woman who worked at a meat processing plant there.  Quang V. Dao a refugee from Vietnam is profiled with his family. They are not Christian. Each winner received $15,000,000.00 after taxes.

    I Agree!.. Christians are the majority in this country  l also agree that it' s extremely possible that most jackpot winners would be likewise. I * personally have yet to see a Sikh or a Muslim playing the lottery, however that does not mean they don't. Rexer90 was merely expressing an opinion. Last time l checked, freedom of speech was still a RIGHT in this country, so let's just step off the furniture, shall we?

      Let us get to the matter at hand tonight. Power Ball ATTH = $40,000,000.00  What will a Lottery Post winner do with such cash? As Mike Pace, a former Power Ball announcer said, "This is revolutionary in a winner's life". Are you ready? Were you born ready? 

       Tonight's PB amount does not compare with the ATTH= $200,000,000.00 cash that Richard won. Although I will not be complaining.

          I guess I am a big city girl and know many people from various cultures and religions. So I don't make assumptions as to their personal beliefs.

            dpoly1,  "ATTH" is an acronym for After-Tax Take Home. 

             Specifically for those States that do not tax lottery winnings like California. 

             This ATTH uses the Lump Sum Cash amount, to begin with.  I use USAMEGA to get that amount after 25% is paid to the IRS automatically. Then I subtract 12% for the IRS tax that will be paid by April 15, 2019. 

             This is another State-specific thing. Each State, County, City will have a tax bill. 

             The Highest rate in California is 13%. I save that because I live here in Fresno, CA in the Central Valley.

            New York, New York residents pay State, County, and City. Maybe more?

              I Agree!  My assumptions are usually incorrect and wrong.

                I've found that first impressions are usually 180 out.

                Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any. So many systems, so many theories, so few jackpot winners.

                There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                  Coin Toss, I Agree! The problem is that people do rely on first impressions to make general opinions of the new person. Then it is difficult to move back 180 degrees. Even when you are wrong.

                        Congratulations to him to step forward and take the lump sum payment. Was the winning ticket a quick pick or was it an own pick?

                        I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the PB to win the largest PB jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars! I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Mega Ball to win the largest Mega Millions jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!

                              Great story but i hate seeing  Lukoil get that money because the Russians are horrible at business. I know someone that had to deal with that company.
