            I have not seen any Euro Millions ticket. So, it would be nice if I can see sooner or later the image of winning ticket uploaded here.

            [One thing to note: Might have been coincidence but, I remember, the last time when EM was hit big, MM was also hit big that night. This Friday...?  I'll see]

            Good luck!

              May I ask how safe this service is? When you win lets say $600. Do they take there 1% cut then?

              How honest is this service? Noticed that they also allow for purchasing PB and Mega...What state do they use as home base? this makes a difference when going to claim the prize as certain states do have state tax wihtholdings.

               

              ~~Is it true, Is it kind,Is it necessary. ~~~

                TheGameGrl,

                You should do some searching of this topic on LP.  Answers to all those questions were posted previously.

                  So, say 3% state tax, would make you not take a chance on $225M? I'm not sure any one cares about the tax, they may complain, but they don't care - not enough to stop gambling. NYC has tax on top of tax and people line up to play.

                  How honest are they? Look for the complainer. If there was something to complain about, they would be coming out of the walls.

                  1% of 600 leaves $540.00 - if they take it. Why don't you do some research and let us all know?  Some times finding the answer is more rewarding then asking the question.

                  Cheers

                        Thank you Chewie and Todd.

                         Naturally I am a born beleiver that one learns more from researching then having someone feed them the answers. I *HAD* gone to the Prime Ticket page and did read the companys history and policy. Thus why I was asking for a persons experience with such service.  My screen for Lottery Post does not have the "search" feature button for past post. Only for past drawing results. Then again my bifocals could need adjusted :)

                        Chewie: The tax issue was not a complaint but an inquiry as to what state its claimed in. Sometimes text can be misintrepreted since the tone or inflection is not there to determine the structure.

                        Thanks for the referral guidance though! :)

                          Again, taxes is a discussion item.  Avoid paying when its legal.  However, as a deterant to millions of dollars - I couldn't care less about the IRS.  As I've said before, I would be aat the top of the complainers list, but would smile when I saw the leftovers.

                          I don't bet PTS for any in-country they offer. I am lucky - or unlucky - enough to have access to all the in-country games.  I only use them for EM.  However, if they offered Florida, I would play them.  Does Florida take taxes, I don't care.  New York takes taxes and New Jersey doesn't.  I buy tickets in both states; covering both sides of the availability.  I would take the win in NY in a heart beat; and pay the taxes.  I dream of hitting both states in the same draw (sometimes I dupe the numbers) and then complaining during the news conference about the greedy state of NY.

                          Cheers

                              Chewie, apparently it's basically good luck to you and no taxes!
