    Same here, except instead of Powerball it will be Mega Millions. I'm really exciting!

      Yep, Illinois starts powerball the same day and Wisconsin starts MegaMillions the same day....

      I did the math and between Illinois and Wisconsin...

      If I had a powerball ticket in illinois for tonight I could win $32,184,000 cash after taxes....

      With the same ticket in Wisconsin I would win                  $30,060,750 cash after taxes....

      A difference of                                                                     $2,123,250

      I just might just play in Illinois........

      There is an agreement between the 2 states to not tax each others income......

      I just noticed that all 3 major games in Illinois are at the Minimum....

      Lotto $2 mil   Little Lotto 100,000 and Mega $12 Million...

      I still would be happy withe either one!!!!!!

        So sad to see that the MegaMillion jackpot was won last night here in TX. I was so looking forward to seeing two huge jackpots going neck and neck. Oh well there's always next week.

        Congratulations to the sole winner of last night's MegaMillion jackpot of $144 million in Katy, TX and congratulations to Short Stop Market that sold the winning ticket. You're both winners.
