PB-Cash Value
Well Powerball has sunk to a new low. The cash value to annuity ratio is now under 45% some where in the north of 44.5% of the annuity. Thank you powerball for all of your work to bend over the purchasing lottery player. I do not like the back loaded annuity or the low cash ratio. I will still play because I do not have Mega Millions in my state but you are getting a thumbs down from me. What it all boils down to is one big crap shoot.-weshar75...

MM/PB Annuity
I was doing the taxes on the annuity for both Mega Millions and Powerball today to see what I could get if I choose annuity on the game. It is a nice little payout if you like an annual check I think MM worked out to like $380,769 for 26 payments. Powerball was in the first year $490,327 and the last year was $1,529,161 so I guess they are nice pay outs. But it always depends on the winners personal choice I would be tempted to go either way because of the advantages of both...

Annual Payments
Man those annual payments for Mega Millions is over $10 million a year and the annuity is only 26 years. That is roughly a $149 million after taxes. I would be only 56 years old when the annuity finished plus all of the beggars that wanted something I could tell them I am on a fixed income so they are not going to get anything. Man when the jackpot gets this high the annuity does look tempting. I would have to decide tomorrow when I am at the lottery Office in Olympia,...

I matched the PB & PB jackpot amount
I matched the Powerball on saturday night on a 4$ ticket. Which according to the match 0 of 5 + PB =$4 dollar win so that is cool. The jackpot value that is always pushed is the annuity which is annoying, do people really go for the annuity? I always go by the cash value jackpot, not annuity....

Mega Millions
Well I think that I am going to let mega grow before I play again probably to about $52 million. When the annuity is $2 million a year for the life of the annuity is when I like to play. But since I have budgeted to play all month long I might just do that and see if I can get that $1 million or smaller jackpot under my belt. I will have to see this friday if I am up to play mega millions.-weshar75...

PB $101.1 million cash
Do you notice the higher in PB annuity you go the higher the gap is between the cash value not being half right now it is $3.9 million less than half of the annuity. If it hits the record sum again on this run I would like to see how large in cash the gap will be. I thought it would be an interesting side note. I will still take the cash when I win on wednesday.-weshar75...

Cash Option 1/7/06
Well in Oregon the cash option for Oregon Megabucks is half the annuity or $3.8 million in cash. The Oregon Powerball is $28.3 million in cash it is a little bit less than half the annuity. Both cash prizes are up for the taking this saturday and I hope that one of my tickets has the six numbers to unlock the big prize. I will be selecting the cash option because I plan on splitting the prize with my mother 50/50....
