Somebody last night won the 96 million dollar PB from Missouri. We are getting so conditioned to go for the higher jackpots that anything under 100 million are not even news worthy anymore.

    I remember when Florida Lotto in late 80's early 90's had the world record at 50 something million, that was such a lottory fever then, lol.

        Yeah, and someone from California won on March 1 as well, and the jackpot was only $60 million!

          I would not" mind" winning a JP around $100 mil, reason being- it could be easily forgotten by the media and the general public.The press is looking for that $300 mil & above winner.
          I could be wrong about this but if you in a State that does not allow anonymity,  you could very well be" free & clear" from nosey press & neighbours by slipped under the radar...perhaps!

                I was thinking the same thing, someone wins 96 million and it's like "yeah? so what!"

                  I wouldn't mind winning my CA SuperLotto Plus which has been rolling for awhile at $38 million.  Like someone said, it's not going to garner much attention, if any at all. 

                  What stinks is picking 5 of 5 numbers in our CA Fantasty 5 and winning ~$9,000 because 6 people won at the reset jackpot of ~$54,000.  Happened last night.

                    Bet the" lottery lizards" aka  professional money managers with unscrupulous intentions, will be heading out to Missouri to home in on some action. $96M is news worthy in my book.

                      It actually doesn't matter the size of the jackpot....they will still come for you. As soon as there is a winner, they submit an open records request for the contact information (anonymous states are an exception of course). Most of those who request this are investment groups, banks, etc. The other majority of requests come from charities. You will have at least 10 different entities snatch your info.

                      They don't discriminate by person or prize size...they chase it all.  There's nothing you can do to keep them from adding you to their "lists" either. So if you think winning only a few million will keep them away, not a chance. You may be undulated with more requests if it gets publicized through the media, but if you win any jackpot they will still flood your mailbox and voicemail.

                      Most states keeps the names of who requests records for future reference. To get an idea of what to expect (or who to hear from) if you win, you can check either your lottery website or contact the open records department of your local government to see a list.

                      If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
                      If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?
