    Yep the IRS always comes out on top. They seem to be taking an even larger amount out of the winnings then ever before. Those guys who won in CT got only $100 million out of $254? What kind of a scam is that?

    That's because they took the cash option. The cash option is the real jackpot. It's the amount that would be invested to produce the annuity that is advertised ($254 million). They still have to pay taxes from the cash amount.

      You KNOW the game before you play.

      Powerball:  Wednesday, December 07, 2011 - $52.0 Million Annuity $ 32.2 MILLION Cash

      Mega Millions:Tuesday, December 06, 2011 - $87 Million Annuity $ 63.4 MILLION Cash

      And then you take off taxes.

      If you KNOW ahead, there is no scam.

      Play or don't play.

        Haven't really won any big prizes in the lottery - $100 here and there on a scratch off.

        I did win a very substantial (6 figure value) prize in a non-lottery raffle once.

                I've won $100 on a scratch off once and some $40s as well. The most I've had on MM/PB has been $6, I believe. Hopefully that changes.
