Even a 10-way split from tonight's Powerball would be great!

At $142 million from this evening's Powerball, I'd be seriously happy, if was to win 1/10 of it.
It just has to happen, so I can get out of this fish bowl.  "Well, it's not a fish bowl . .  . . "

Come Sunday, I will begin to play at one of the 8 or so "tax free on big lotto prizes" states.
If I win, I promise to do somebody's family a good deed, if I win at least 1/10 of the jackpot.

Please, just let it happen, 11:00pm tonight.

I need to win, can you understand?  I'll then stop playing that 'number', since I don't believe any jackpot #
has ever repeated.

I play too many numbers.  I can tell at a glance if it's me or not. So far, nada.

    A 10 way-split would be about $5 million after taxes and anyone should be happy with that. For $15 you could play the same combo five times with 5 different bonus numbers using PowerPlay and win at least $10 million even if you missed the bonus number.

      "A 10 way-split would be about $5 million after taxes and anyone should be happy with that."

      That's what state lotteries continue thinking but most players continue to play the multi-state lotteries with odds 20x harder with jackpots 10x larger.

          You lucked out, that's one promise you won't have to worry about keeping. Wink

            Seriously,

            Had I won it, someone besides me would be very happy.
            Anyway, continued good fortune to the guy from Tennessee who did win it.
