Let's say one Tuesday we have a mega millions drawing for a $725 million jackpot and the following numbers are drawn 1-2-3-4-5 Mega Ball: 1.  Wouldn't it be pretty funny to see thousands of jackpot winners who only end up getting about $100k after taxes?

      I really doubt that will ever happen and if it does I would be shocked.. Also I will feel sorry for anyone that wins in California are f��ked because they have to pay high taxes and state income taxes... Take a look at the recent mega winner in California and they have to pay the state $40 million in state taxes alone... No wonder why California is in debt and broke and people moving to Seattle...

       

      I would never play California lottery games hell no....

        It would be even cooler if it was 1-2-3-4-5 and the megaball was 6 LOL..Heck 725 million whatever taxes they take out who cares either sum youd end up with would be more than you'd ever earn LOL. I say tax me son!!

          I remember a couple months ago on Fantasy 5 the numbers came out something like 15-16-17-18-19 and there was 10-20~ winners. What astounded me was that people actually played those numbers LOL
