                    Funny thing though.... USA Mega says 13 5+0 winners, but only lists 10 in the states where they came from.

                      This is the first draw in a while that I've seen the numbers spaced out in a more regular fashion.  The other draws would've been harder to predict because of the big gaps.

                          I would only care if they were giving me a gift out of that prize.  I think it was $ 103 million in cash, and about $ 60 million after taxes.  They'll need a good estate planner since the estate tax goes back up in five years.  The exemption will fall back to $ 600,000 and the tax will rise to 55 percent.

                            Damn the illinois Lotto is a bigger stack than $12M its hovering around $13M right now so its not even worth playing MM until the IL lotto is busted, odds are like 20 times better.  You'd have to buy 20 times the tickets to get the same odds in MM than IL lottery.

                             I thought i won for sure too, i had all the #'s and i remembered i had all those #'s and the same MB # but sure enough they were all split up into different tickets :(

                            Well......... i'm gonna win and that's all there is to it! :D

                                Yeah, I'm not even playing Powerball until the Illinois Lotto is busted.  As a new rule of mine, I buy one less Powerball or Mega Millions ticket than usual for that drawing if I'm also playing the Illinois Lotto (therefore, Powerball must be at least $75 million and Mega Millions must be at least $90 million for me to get even one ticket if I'm playing Illinois Lotto).

                                I've got my ticket for tonight's Illinois Lotto drawing!
