    Mike,

    Under your scenario a $35 million annuity divided by 35 winners would be $1 million annuity or roughly $480,000 cash before taxes.  So say the tax man takes half and you have $240,000.  You still traded $1 for $240,000 because your one line won.  I doubt that we would see more than 5 multiple winners of a multi-state jackpot game in the next 100 years.  But you never know.  I still think I would be excited that I won the winnings that I got off a $1 ticket and not concentrate on the what ifs.-weshar75

      True scenario- I'm in a lottery pool as it is, so to have to split it amongst us as it is can sometimes be painful, I'd be FAR less then pleased to have to split it amongst other multiple winners.

      Most questions along these longs are a stretch of the imagination, but a mind less stretched has no way to bend or open up to the possibilities...
