$640 million would be nice, haha

Yeah. Everyone should go buy a ticket and if you win share it with everyone here who also bought a ticket. I think that would be fair. Unless I win. :)

 

When the jackpots get this big more people buy more tickets. The chances of two or more pople choosing the same number increase so the chances of a single jackpot winner go down. I am only willing to split my winnings with one other person. :)

i dont buy lottery tickets, unless maybe there was a pool, i am more afraid of the information that gets out once the winner is announced especially when it getting closer to billion dollars. It so easy for someone to find someone and stalk them or hurt someone. I dont know how other states operate, but PA, they basically spell out where u live - county, city, township, etc..- without putting the exact address where someone lives.

Thats why there is a conceal carry program which I am an active member of and highly support.

 

Also with that kind of cash I would own several homes in several countries I would move out of my home that night.

 

Plus people can change their name and also get face lifts......depending upon the winner that might be a good idea.

You always seem so lucid...smart...knowledgeable..level headed, then you post this!

 

Face lift? To hide your identity? You've been watching Joan Rivers too much! :hysterical:

Yeah, and the guy is already a millionaire.

 

 

Sometimes I just wish that they had more regulations regarding to winning the lottery.

 

 

I think one of the winners worked at Mickey D's and has 7 kids - no dad, she was in a lottery pool with co-workers, but said she "bought" the ticket on her own and wasnt apart of the pool, so she is screwing people out of their money to

I saw this morning that she said that all the tickets that she bought for the pool were photocopied and each person got a copy of all the tickets and the winning one was not one of the ones that she picked up with the pooled money. She claims she went back to the store after she bought the pooled tickets.

 

I guess it would be easy to see the time of sale on the winning ticket to see if she did indeed come back later that evening.

 

This story is interesting and if she did indeed buy the ticket after she bought the pooled tickets then she is not really screwing anybody.

+1......

 

I am in a pool every week at work too......does that mean I cant buy my own tickets?

 

hardly!

 

the jealous saps she has for co-workers can whine all they want.....

 

if its not on their photocopy........it just "oh snap, I was so close but no cigar" sour grapes........

 

they are entitled to share the winnings?

 

yeah right!

How do u prove it if it was hers or not? I am now hearing, that someone else from the pool gave her an extra $5 for it, then she went out later and bought the tickets

 

i am reminded what happen to a lottery winner in NJ. Its the same story, guy was part of a pool, he/they won the lottery, but the guy holding the ticket said he bought his own. So the co-workers sue the winner, and the judge was in favor of the co-workers, so he had to share the winnings.

there is a photo copy of all the tickets they bought together.

the ticket that won is not on the photocopy. they get the photocopy before the drawing.

how does she know which ticket to keep for herself before the lottery drawing?

 

exactly. there would be no way of knowing which ticket would win and keep it for your self.

 

sour grapes.

 

the NJ story is different. the guy tried to claim the ticket was his own and the whole group had photo copies of the winning ticket.

 

the judge did the right thing.....

 

in the new story from mcdonalds, no one has a photocopy of the winning ticket....it is not on their sheet the group has copies of.

Maybe an idea would be to photocopy your tickets as well with "FULL DISCLOSURE - MY TICKETS" all over the place. That way there is no hiding anything and issues like that get resolved quick.

 

Also, if I won that half billion dollars, first thing to do is setup a Trust which then claims the ticket so it is not technically yours - taxes and all are paid by the trust. Then you sell your house/car/expensive toys to the trust. If you look at the winners list on the website, check out how many winners are XYZ Trust. Gotta investigate that more, and talk to your investment guru.

did yall hear about the update to the story? 1st she says she hid the ticket in Mickey D's, her co-workers say she hasnt been in McD since the win, and she cant find the ticket :hysterical2:

 

would be nice to live in Kansas, the winner in Kansas is allowed to remain anonymous, also there is a new MD winner that claimed the ticket and he/she is allowed to remain anonymous also. KS and MD got great laws to "protect" their identies. You are not allowed remain anonymous in PA, basically they give you directions to the winner's home :hysterical2:

People should be charged for their 15 minutes of fame if they lie. If I were the news agencies I'd send her a bill.

 

 

the thing is, wouldnt she have to pay her "lawyer" for protecting her at press conferences and whatnot? Seems like she didnt think anything through
