You've realized you won the JP, what happens in the next hour for you?

I would do my patented touchdown fist-pump and swoop, then check the numbers a couple of times. Then I would sit there and check my consciousness to make sure that I haven't went stark, raving mad. Then I would probably stare at the ticket with a mix of shock, awe and somewhat fearful reverance as if it were some sort of holy/sacred/religious totem or icon. Then I would stick it in an envelope, wrap it in foil, put it in a small, waterproof ziploc baggie, and then duct-tape it to my chest. Chest and nipple hair be damned. Then lay on the floor and calm myself and gather my thoughts as to what my following actions should entail.

    I would thank the Lord first thing...

    Then call up all my friends and ask to borrow $100/$200 dollars to get their response...(They would probably wonder what's up....?)

    Just to see who would come through for me if I had a need...

    Put the ticket in a safe place.. The Bible...

    and pop open a Slim Fast and enjoy...

      I like your thinking...great way to find out who your true friends really are.  After those who say, sorry dude...you can say yeah sorry dude because I just won a huge jackpot!

      Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

      The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

        Once I had confirmation that I had won, I would quickly email my boss and co-workers the following:

         I will not be at work today or any day following, as I have an eye problem.  I just won the Mega-Millions Jackpot and I can't see myself working their any more.

          But I hope you'll keep an eye out for their well being...LOL

          I'm sure you have envisioned what you will do with the money...

          Most people would just look away, and not even call their boss..

          Then you can buy 5 Cataracs, and keep them in your drive-way next to all the Porsches....

              1. Sign Ticket

              2. Re-Verify 5+1

              3. Go to my "What If" folder and follow the instructions that I had written down when I was calmer and much less wealthy. Everything is in here... Who to tell, who NOT to tell...Map to lottery HQ in PA,

              4. re-re-verify 

              5. pick up phone and cash in a "sick" day at work.

              6. plan the trek to the lottery HQ the next day (unless it's a saturday JP, then monday.)

              7. one last peek at the numbers to make sure I wasn't imagining it.

              and that might not take a whole hour.

              oh yeah, then

              8. wake up, go to work because it was just a dream :-(

              Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.
