    It's in the range that anybody's who's anyone will buy a ticket, but I was actually expecting the jackpot to be somewhat higher.  I think July 4th hurt ticket sales.  Last Christmas, the jackpot jumped from $217M to $315M in one drawing.  Probably included a lot of Christmas gifts, but I still expected at least a $60M bump.

                Just wait awhile before you spend any money V-dude. Interest should put the money over 100 million in a short time. But remember V-dude, 27% is just the WITHHOLDING tax. You still owe more money to the government. You will have to file quarterly tax returns.


                Okay, now I believe you can predict lottery numbers

                      That's what I figure it would be worth, lump sum after taxes...

                        That's what I got, more or less, still, I think I could live off that. If I budgeted wisely.

                            do foreigners have to pay taxes on lottery winnings?

                              Who pays taxes depends on their US status, and where they are from. If you win and cannot produce a valid SS#, the gov will withhold 30%.
