Someone won from Iowa tonight.  It resets to $15 million.

So it looks like the lastest PB winner(s) are not 18, 19, or 20.

    I wonder how many weeks/months it will go unclaimed while the person continues to run their successful business...

    It they are wise they will wait til January of 2006 to claim it. That way they have all year to cover the 10% Federal tax they'll owe from the cash payout. (The first 25% tax(+3to7%) is taken prior to dispersing.)

    Anytime its this late in the tax year its wiser to wait and claim in the forthcoming year.

            Probably someone else who still does not even know they won, nor really cares. I guess that is why I have not won yet, I am actually aware of the fact that I bought a ticket.

                The winner was from Des Moines, IA, according to http://www.ialottery.com/PressRoom/N12-15-05.html !!

                I have an uncle who lives in Des Moines.  Maybe he plays Powerball and he was the winner!

                  I got an idea for ya sirbrad! How about I bonk ya on the head right before the drawing..you'll forget you have the ticket. The next day you'll  find a the mysterious ticket in your pocket and its the winner! Hey its worth a try! (Just kidding on the above matter)...

                  You're one of the people to whom I would be ecstatic if you won! I root for ya each time you play Match6,PB and LFL!

                    Thanks GameGrl! I think I will take a pass on the bonking however, as I like to actually be aware, and not oblivious to the fact that I hold a ticket worth millions. Bash  I am not sure what part of PA you are from, but we Pennsylvanians got to stick together! Big Smile  I would love to win sometime soon, as I know I can do a world of good for my town, and create more jobs, and other lucrative/artistic prospects for others. Thanks for pulling for me, the feeling is mutual. Thanks again, ok ok who do I make the check out to when I win? Big Grin Santa

                      Heres a riddle for where I live and work.

                      1: I am 5 minutes from my workplace to the Official Lottery Headquarters in PA.

                      2: A 60 mill PB claim was made by a lady in my hometown in December of 2003.

                      Its not who you make the check out to so much as how the lottery will make the check out to you! Practice your signature alot, I heard it helps for when you sign autographs and have to desposit the funds!

                      Since out State Motto is "You got a friend in Pennsylvania" I reckon we shall stick together cheering each other to jackpot victory! Only 14 days til the raffle! woohooo!!!

                            Iowa got lucky with Powerball again!! They had another $200,000 winner for last night's (12/17/05) drawing, one of four (no, it was not mine).

                              Sirbrad! I love your ingenous reply! Yes that is the candy to have! My plan is simple...get a pogo stick and bounce my way over to headquarters. Imagine the publicity on that stunt. 13 days and counting til we are the BIG winners!

                              Ryanm- seems Iowa is getting some hot winners lately! Congrats to your state ! I'm sure the proceeds are going to marvelous programs in your state. Best wishes to you.
