    I want to win the $179 million powerball.

    I don't.

    I'd end up paying 175 million in taxes, leaving me 4 mill, and I'd have to claim that 4 mill, so that would cost me 45%, which would only leave me 2.1 mill..... (sic)

      Where are you getting your tax information?  I didn't make an effort to win it because I would have had to drive out of state for tickets, but I will be buying some tickets locally for tonight's MM $120M jackpot drawing.

      My problem is my strategy of buying 20 tickets hasn't won more than $10 except ones when I matched 4+0.

       * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *
