How much tax do they take over there MW?

No taxes whatsoever. The lottery company does not pay any taxes either since the money goes to charity, voluntary work and amateur sport clubs.

Sounds like a good deal. Thanks. Good luck to you!

            The most I won was $50.  After scratching losing ticket after losing ticket, you should have seen how happy I was to win---to win anything.  I was jumping up and down like I won a million dollars!  I think that if/ when I win the million dollars, I'd explode!

              In that case, you should give up shooting for the JP. It's hard to enjoy the money If you are split into 50 pieces by "Self Explosion"....lol

                I won about $165 in the Ohio lottery back in 1989. It was my first time ever playing any type of lottery. My-then boyfriend showed me how to buy a ticket (there was a machine at the local Woolworth's; you filled out the form and put it into the machine - it spit out your ticket). I had wanted to play before, but was afraid to ask the cashier how.

                I remember him calling me the next day, saying neither of us had won (even though he didn't even know what my numbers were) and I asked him for the numbers. As he rattled them off, I told him I had some of those.

                I'm sure he expected me to give him some of the money, but a pizza was good enough. I was in college and had bills to pay.

                Anyway, being that it was my first time and I won...well, I felt that it was a sign and have played ever since.

                I must say...I feel SO much better after reading everyone's posts. Obviously, I've been playing for years and last year was the second biggest jackpot I have ever won - $50 in a PA scratch-off. $14 is my third runner-up.

                But it's really only been the past few years I've been playing more constantly and not just once every few months. I concentrate only on PB and MM and once in a while, scratch-offs. I have decided to stop playing the "multiplier" so I can use that money for more tickets instead.

                I know there is more money if I played Cash 5 or whatever NC has. But I have a feeling about MM...

                  $200-ish when I was 11 on a scratch card. My Dad would buy me scratchers after swim practice. At 11, $200 might as well have been a $10m jackpot... haha
