Had 4 out of 5 twice on the same ticket with Power Play.  If I had hit the 5th number on either set of numbers, I would have really been greatful.  As I am not a greedy person, I am happy & thankful that I won the $884.00. 

Good Luck & Best Wishes Too All.

        POWERBALL ticket was attached.

        won $100.00 ea for the 4 numbers - 2 sets = $200.00 * powerplay 4 = $800.00

        won $7.00 ea for the 3 numbers - 3 sets = $21.00 * powerplay 4 = $84.00

        Total = $884.00

          How often do you play powerball?  How many money do you spend per drawing?

          Smart lottery winners form trust to claim their winnings.  They send an attorney to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize in trust, so that ONLY the name of the trust is revealed.  And they tell NO ONE, especially relatives.

          If you ever win a lottery and you are single, the only person you should ever marry is someone who was truly in love with you BEFORE you won the jackpot!

            I have been playing powerball twice a week since it started in IL on 02/03/10.

            I spend what I can afford per drawing. - min/drawing - $10.00 - $5.00/numbers & $5.00/powerplay.

            My motto is "Beat the Odds" & I do just that.

                  First - Congrats on the WIN!! And yes you were REALLY close to hitting for 5 of 5.  

                  Second - help me understand how the IL lottery didn't tax you?  You got a check from IL Lottery. I was under the understanding that if I go to NY Lottery for a payout REGARDLESS of the amount they will tax me?  I just assume that NY would TAX anything they could!

                  Or am I wrong, has anyone else been able to got to a NY State Lottery office and cash a ticket for LESS than $600.00 and not get taxed?

                  Money won is twice as good as money earned!

                    In the State of IL - any prize winnings $600.00 and over must be reported to the IRS.

                    Federal Income tax are withheld if your prize exceeds $5,000.00

                    State Income tax are withheld if your prize exceeds $1,000.00

                    Don't worry, besides the check; they also gave me a W-2G form showing 884.00 Gross Winnings & 0.00 Fed Inc tax withheld.

                        That is what i'm talking about.  We should post our winning tickets online for other lottery post members to see.  It allows everybody to believe in order to win.  I won $533.50 on june 13, 2010 with new york take 5 and posted a link to my actual winning ticket on the take five forum.  When i win a second prize or the jackpot on mega millions or powerball , i will let everybody knows on LOTTERY POST by posting a link to the actual winning ticket for everybody too see.  I'm tired of seeing lottery winners in new york without a big picture of the actual winning ticket.
