$555 and it will be split by Brian Nairb and Sandra Ardnas.

Don't forget Bob Otto.

    For those of us that don't play every drawing, we expect the ad prize of one or the other game to reach $1/2 billion and then determine when we should buy a ticket. It's almost getting to be discuss the jackpot, claiming, ducks, spending winnings, etc. wait a month or two and repeat.

      Whoever wins it I hope they are in an anonymous state......it's pretty entertaining watching so many people go dizzy with curiosity.

      Cheers to those who are playing this weekend

        Coincidentally,  powerball was at the previous amt.   The same time something happened in the current events.  go figure,  yet, a lot of people are amazed about this lottery but no one really knows.

            I have my automobile selection. It is a 2019 BMW 3 Series 330i RWD 4D Sedan for $50,000.00

             My winning ticket will be safely inside a Bank's Safety Deposit Box while I get my ducks in a row, and let the media hysteria die down. Here in CA I have one year to claim.

                    When I first read those other names, I was reminded of that old joke:  Didja hear the one about the dyslexic atheist?  He didn't believe in Dog.

                    BTW, my real name is Mike Ekim.

                        One item that I never have come across is when the lottery winner is retired. How a retired winner should protect his or her winnings. I would say, "I am retired. I cannot get a job to replace these funds if I give it all away."  Charity and gift giving are at the bottom of my list of things to do.

                         I will get my ducks all lined up and grow into my wealth. He or She who has the gold makes the rules. 

                         The Shark from Shark Tank named Barbara CorCoran said, "She sold her business for $66 million. She immediately paid her taxes." She placed all after-tax monies into a savings account in Citi Bank.

                         I will consult with my CPA about paying taxes immediately after getting the check. 

                         Barbara also mentioned that everybody came to her with their $10,000.00 problem.

                          Just read a story, don't know if it is true of why a female waited so long to collect on her massive MM win in SC.  It didn't specify her age though.
