Mega Millions jackpot increases to $90 million

Mega MillionsMega Millions: Mega Millions jackpot increases to $90 million

The jackpot in the multi-state Mega Millions lottery grew to $90 million Saturday.

None of the tickets sold for Friday's $77 million drawing matched all five lotto numbers and the Mega Ball.  The next drawing will be Tuesday.

There were 11 second-prize winners from Friday night's drawing: 1 from Georgia, 2 from Michigan, 2 from New York, 2 from Ohio, 2 from Texas, 1 from Virginia and 1 from Washington.  Each ticket matched all five lotto numbers but not the Mega Ball number to win $175,000.

Also, 28 players matched four of the five lotto numbers, plus the Mega Ball number.  Those tickets are each worth $5,000.

The winning numbers from Friday's drawing were: 3, 29, 30, 41, and 43.  The Mega Ball number was 1.

The Texas Megaplier was 3.

        For the record, TX joined Mega Millions late in 2003; WA in Sep 2002.

                  You cannot buy permanent residence or citizenship in the USA.

                   

                  Check the State Lottery Report Card
                  What grade did your lottery earn?

                    It doesnt work like that.  Doesnt matter how much money you invest in the US, you have to go through Imimigration and Naturalization Service of the US Department of Justice to obtain a permanent residence status.

                      Although the following information does not pertain to USA immigration and investment, I believe there is some potential for UK investment(UK Business Immigration by investing £200,000 (about US$360,000).

                        Green Cards through investment (also called the Fifth Preference) are available to anyone who invests a certain amount of money U.S. by creating a business or expanding one that already exists. The investor must be active in the management of the company. A number of investors may join together in creating or expanding a U.S. business and each may qualify for a Green Card through one single company. However, the individual investment of each person, must still meet the minimum qualifying amount, and each investor must be separately responsible for the creation of new jobs.


                        Okay, now I believe you can predict lottery numbers

                          Thanks a lot all of you for sharing good information for my question. In india we have 44% tax slab and we have treaty with US, so if i have to pay 29% tax in US then only remaining 15% i have to pay in India.

                          But in case we do not have treaty then i have to pay 29 % in US and 44% in India.

                          But still if i can save 15% in India by getting US citizenship from investing in businees as you mentioned (US $ 36000 or say US $ 1,00,000) then also i can save much. isn't?

                          waiting for all your comments. thanks again

                          paras
