      That's never going to happen again.  Second 3 people that won the big lottery split up 335 million dollars after taxes.  Govt takes 40%? Around there and thrn tax bracket.  My advice to both you and I've been on here for about 2 years over there take a look at different topics and other members have fun and good luck

            Do the math.   It's not $1.6 billion.  It's really $350 million if its 3 tickets.   Govt takes half of that.  state takes what they have to.  Trust me I know.

              We all know that.....

              I am jusing talking of the estimated jackpot.

               

              If that's the case then the posted amount is never the same for any one person taking into account

              • States of origin
              • School loans
              • Child support liabilities
              • Crook or none crook lawyer/accountants/advisors
              • Blah blah blah.

               

              Posted jackpot is my big picture for the game gets interesting

                You all have to remember the lotto is a dollar for a dollar so there $1.6 billion is really $3.2 and you still get $350 mil but somehow id like to live off that amount lol

                Stay In The Vortex, you'll be happy you did ..... Random? Seriously? You want me to believe that?

                   Never say Never.  In recent history, players were saying that a $1 billion jackpot would never happen.

                    The key here is the annuity.  Then you have to see about taxes on federal and state.  City is another story.  Everyone gets caught up in the excitement.   Why not just take a look at your state lottery?   Better odds than the big boys.   After someone mentioned to me because of odds I agreed with them.  Powerball and mm will always do what the lotteries do but sometimes people need to think smarter and realize the repercussions.

                      .

                      Winner Winner Chicken Dinner,

                      It's possible, but I still prefer that someone (hopefully myself, though unlikely)
                      wins it EVERY draw, or every other draw, at the most.

                      When the jp gets that doggone high, you know it's going to split up.

                      So, other than the obvious, what are you hoping for, with the huge 1Billy+   jack-pot?

                      • Don't chase the numbers you play.
                      • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
                      • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.
                                (so far, though, I've yet to win any significant lotto prize)

                        I could go for some collard greens, and stuffing myself.
                        maybe a slice of pumpkin pie anyone else?

                        as far as the lottery reaching a billion,
                        I'd like to share that with the family over the holiday
                        season.

                          If no one keeps hitting and you want to see it again after thanksgiving.  I just looked at past results.  I believe the reason is because of the pathetic presidential race.   Other wise the amts would be higher and the odds of this lottery stink.

                           

                          My bday falls on fri Dec 16.   But then it would have to be that sat.   Maybe hanukkah or christmas

                            I doubt winning it that often is profitablefor the big guys running it. I could be totally wrong. 

                            A few big big jackpots with the occasional low hits would be ideal.....there have been far too few winners this year. If this trend continues in coming years, I see people totally losing interest in the $2 dollar game.

                             

                            The 3 who won the billion dollar draw literally one three big draws each.....so multiple winners on the order ofor three is not to bag for such a big jackpot.

                              When the three winning tickets were sold as in CA  the people were very smart and wise not to come out but stay anonymous which is awesome.   The news camera pin pointed a house that claimed where these people lived at and left unnoticed.  Good for them and good for their privacy. 

                               

                              Hey who knows if I can pick the correct wins for this lottery and win one for my deceased dad.
