If you take the lump sum, you'll get less than $500 million after taxes. Odds are their will be more than one winner. Hardly worth the price of a ticket.

    You know it’s going to go to six illegal Hondurans who pooled their landscaping money to buy a ticket at the bodega next to Home Depot, right?

    I bought 10 tickets for the guys at shop. If we win, everyone gets 200 million and change and we all retire!

    What the hell, can’t win if you don’t play!

    Cash out option is $750 million plus or minus. Then uncle Sam takes his part (you know, to support Ukraine) at about 40 something percent.
    You have to do like the politicians and set up a charity or a foundation to keep the grubby fingers of the IRS out of your pocket.

    I believe a trust accomplishes that.

    You guys think too small. I’m going to move in next door to Dirty D and get in on some of his action. I would also like a ride on the sub. I’ve always wanted to do a lock in/out dive out of a chamber.

    Can you imagine how Elon Musk or those other mega billionaires feel?
    We are only talking about half a billion and they are worth a hundred plus times that

    Hey, at least Elon's exposing the coruption.
    As for me, Huge fk'n ranch mentioned above, some belt feds to burn my money, and a few women to burn the rest.

    Ranch in Montana, 5000 acres or so. Just enough for a 1500 yard range, dirt bike track, shop full of trucks, dirt bikes, and snowmobiles.

    Florida compound, 200 acres. Shop full of cool cars, few street legal drag cars, and a street bike or two.


    I don't know if it would be cheaper to own a jet or charter one every time I felt like going back and forth. Zero interest in flying, so I'd need a pilot.



    Most importantly, I'd take 10 million and divide it amongst immediate family. Then I'd tell them to get bent if they ever need money again. I'm pretty sure a few of them could turn 100k into 10 million, and the rest would be in the trailer park with more debt than they started with.

    It would be smarter to "employ" them with your non-profit agency, you know, like the Clinton Foun....

    I would buy them houses/small businesses and then tell them to go run them. No actual money. Then I would invade Hollywood and make a whole bunch of rightwing, God-fearing, anti-woke movies to troll the leftists.

    I did buy a ticket, but the whole thing is so dumb. Aside from the odds, no one needs a billion dollars. Far better to change the odds so 1000 people win a million bucks!
    #1, I'd sure as hell never fly commercial anywhere ever again!

    Just checked the website, and it is correct that there was not a winner. There wasn’t even a winner for the million dollar get five but miss the powerball option. Dave Ramsey says the lottery is a tax on the poor. I guess I’m poor.
