No state taxes, but you still have to pay federal taxes.

    So what would be the monetary savings for this winner?

      No state taxes up front and the year after.  That is better than paying state taxes, right?

        Someone won the Mega Millions jackpot in Pennsylvania Lottery for the last drawing's $152,000,000 grand prize. Do you think someone from Lottery Post hit MM jackpot last night? There a lot of people from Pennsylvania on here.

        Thanks KIR:

          Looks like your dream of a winner coming out of your State was way off Keep. One just can't trust their dreams anymore.

            I can't wait until someone in someplace like Bottineau, North Dakota wins a MM or PB jackpot just to see if some of our regular kvetchers say, "It's always North Dakota, and it's always Bottineau".

            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                                  Agree with stupid  Roll EyesFor that to happen, someone would have to win often like california, new york, texas, and the other usual places.  Speaking of "kvetchers" you are the pot calling the kettle black!

                  Here's why I play every draw, PB and MM.

                  So far this year there have been 299 ( give or take one or two, my count may be off a little) second prize winners of at least $1 million. 214 of them from PB.

                  That's worth a buck or two.

                  CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

                    That's very very small comparied to the amount of people that play mm and pb every draw.

                      bigbear,

                      I don't think so, but the point is for some on this board once = 'always'.

                      pickone4me,

                      I've never complained about the location of a jackpot winner. Et vous?

                          I'm calling you out since I often see you complaining about complainers.

                           

                          No, once doesn't mean always.  Point to an instance where that happened because that is BS.

                              JP never even rolled that high, proof MM is still WAY TOO EASY to win for some.
