Matched megaball and a number which I think it is 2 miserable dollars.

Actually that prize is worth only a miserable 1 dollar.

 As for me I spent 8 and recouped 0. 

I still have to cash in my previous MM win  ($2), and then reinvest when the jackpot get back to 400 million.

I dont feel a sting, because my expectations were relatively reasonable.

Besides,

    The last two weeks has been horrible for me.  I'm pretty much getting skunked left and right.  Didn't even match a mega last night.

        I bought 15 tickets each for the 3 drawings above $300+ million to gauge my luck (I don't play at lower levels), enough to win once you would think? Not a single win in all those. Since the start of September, 72 games of chance/tickets (for various games) played, only 1 win...a 1 in 50.98 million losing streak.

          I didn't buy any tickets. I rather win when the jackpot prize is less. Mabey under $200 million. I would not know what to do with $636 million.

              As it turned out the winners won't have that problem either.  Had you played and won too, they would have had even less to worry about.

                I got all the numbers!!!!!!!!

                 

                 

                ......on different lines Bash

                dats why i buy a couple lines (two this time) and pick my numbers from them.  I got a tic with the mutiplyer 7 and the white ball 20 ($8) and i got the 7 mutipler on one tic because it was the multiplyer on one of those two lines. ($4) So I win $12 Actually I only won 6 bucks cause I paid $6 for the tickets.

                      Big $5 investment and I didnt get even one number.  Even knowing the astronomical odds I was still feeling letdown this morning, so disappointed.  I guess God has decided it just isnt my turn yet.  I have to agree with another poster, I am not so sure I would know what to do with it.  Yea, that's it, as good a excuse as any lol.

                      Oh well onto the next lottery, got your tickets for Powerball?  Good luck all.Blue Angel

                        yeah, but I didn't want to waste money and take the chance, incase there was only one winner. Like Gloria who won the powerball. It's not worth the attention and hassle trying to figure out what to do with all that money.

                          If what you want is only $200 million then you need to wait until the jackpot gets closer to $700 million. The $636 million jackpot would have only paid out roughly $170 million to a residence of New York once all tax obligations were met.

                              What I meant was when the jackpot rolls around to about $200 million or a little more. So I would take the lump sum, which would leave you with about $60-70 million after taxes. I would be happy with that amount.
