Odds for PB/MM of 1÷175,000,000=0.000000006 and (6/49)1÷14,000,000=0.000000071 average out to 0.000000038  minus 100% would be 99.99999996% of the lines played will never match all the winning numbers.  Assuming the average player buys five lines............ well you get my point. 

In spite of those odds of ever winning, quite a few players are thinking more about how to avoid paying taxes if they win than how to win.  I guess they figure winning is easy, the hard part is paying the taxes.

Discussing taxes can be relevant, but "on which day would you prefer to win"?

    Some of these threads are just rediculous.

    I Agree!

    This question is rather straight forward- what's with all the semantics? 

    Thank Goodness the weekend is here, have a good one.

      I really don't care when I win I just want to hit the jackpot and tonight would be fine :)

        On the day for which I brought the ticket, I don't buy tickets for the days I prefer not to win.

         * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

            I want to win a jackpot whenever I play.

            Not being able to sleep, I'm sure, will be a phenomena for many weeks after the win and the claiming of the prize.
