Yes, I'd be thankful and happy with several million AFTER taxes.

    You might conclude that after reading some of the whining posts of a few members but there are folks here who play lotteries for entertainment not wealth. 

    I use to regularly run into a local who owned three McDonald stores when buying lottery tickets before he retired, sold his stores and move to Florida.  A successful car dealer twenty miles from here use to buy lottery tickets for his dealership and customers and when his dealership won a Super Lotto jackpot he shared it with all his employees and later he won one by himself after which he retired, sold his dealership and moved to Florida too.  Both these guys would have ended up well off even if they had never played the lottery.

    You simply can't put every lottery player in the same boat.

    I Agree!

      Or does it have to be a particular amount for genuine " happiness" to kick in?
      BTW- what would that HA be?...... (HA- Happiness Amount)

      I would be happy with three pick-3 straights and 2 box hits per month.

      Hell I would be happy with one pick -3 straight per month and two front pair hits.

      But its real hard to get a hit with two 50 cent bet per day.No Nod

              I did not win the Mega Millions jackpot last night. How about you?
