With this PB jackpot sitting at a HALF A BILLION DOLLARS....Does it make you cringe or whatever when just 1 person wins a jackpot of that size....or are you like me you love it when a group of people wins and can split it....LOL the first time I remember feeling this way was when Jack Whittaker won 314 million all by himself.....regardless of how he handled it....BTW the man was already worth 17 million anyways when he won....Now if it was just me who won....I of course be elated....but I've always said anything over 100 million I'd split with my brother and sisters...basically so if any other family members asked me for something I could say "you know my brother and sisters got a cut too go ask them" LOL

    Maybe all the unemployed Hostess workers will win.

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

        I think the streetsweeper millionaires were the coolest group that's won so far...

            It is good time to play as a group,when jack pot is in:  better chance and feels more fair when such enormous sum benefits many.

              That would be great!! If it's me, maybe I'd buy Hostess and save the Twinkie as well as the employees.

                I've always thought that the lottery should pay out more winnings in less increments.  If 324 people won 1 million dollars, or even 1,000 people won $324,000 it would make more sense, possibly encouraging more players, which ultimately would benefit the economy in regards to educational funds from the government.

                    Whether half a billion or just the regular jackpot, groups seems to do better than individual winners. I also have not heard of anyone regretting that they have won in groups but individual winners are subject to tales of misery.

                    We have not yet won the big one in our syndicate but playing thousands of tickets as a group does not hurt the pocket much.

                    Suspiciousness is one way of saying that one do not want to know the truth. It is the best way to keep the mind empty and the spirit restless.

                      even with just 2 winners, its like wining a super high 260+ jackpot range

                      both will win north of 100M cash after all taxes , that's a lot of cash

                      the real winners  is the states both winners are in charge taxes on winnings 

                      Missouri: 4% State Tax
                      Arizona: 5% State Tax for In-State Residents 

                      however Arizona charges 6% if poor beeps are form out of state

                      if someone won say in ca,or vagas as they have to use arizona to play, am going to rofl, as they go wtf,  this is not fair. !

                      watch a For a corporation, limited liability company, or  trust to claim it, they will get the 5% rate, and mock the 6% rate

                      a

                      the %6 rate for outsiders was thinked up by greedy morons in there state, law has loopholes the size of texas to drive thro to get 5% in state rate, am going to rofl if this happens ., any decent tax lawyer will go,  LOL at arizona and claim it via trust,LLC, etc and  give the state the middle u know what,

                      No bees, no honey.
