Todd---totally understandable in the excitement---but in your story you have Tuesday March 30, 2012. Obviously it's Friday. Just a heads-up.

This is incredible.

The story is corrected for one Tuesday/Friday mix-up.

Hey, I got the story out at 1:12 am Eastern Time, before even the AP reported it.  Maybe forgive a tiny error like Tuesday instead of Friday?

Forgiven. This is just exciting as anything! I had a dream I had to wait in line for an hour to get a MM ticket last night maybe I will actually have too now. :p

All that $$ and i only got 7$ of it. LOL Cheap @$#%^&%$. I think thats all i'll spend fri.


Over at the Powerball HQ they must be hating the crap out of the MegaMillions right now. So far their plans must not be going well for the last few months. This week is going to suck for them really bad.

A wire transfer of at least $255,750,000 if there is a single winner in Pennsylvania! And no State or Local Taxes!

If you pay the full 35% Federal Tax, you would pay $119,350,000! If you don't think that is enough Federal Tax, then you are either childish or a Socialist ..........

1 Ticket, 1 Person ..............   US Flag

I want to go "Green" $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Mmm, I decidedly want to win it as the sole winner. Wink

But will be happy to win with others also, as long as it's not split between 200 other people!

Wow, I really don't think anyone can say with absolute certainty. Perhaps use some of the old strategies to improve your odds.

  • "Keep your mouth shut!" Probably not a good idea to tell anyone in the circle of family and friends, use extreme discression before telling the spouse.
  • Claim by Revocable Living Trust if possible. The Trustee's name will be printed (Your Trust Attorney) but if they are good at what they do, they should be a nice brick wall for your identity. Cut them a fat Christmas bonus if you continue to remain anonymous by year's end.
  • Don't be too hasty to quit the day job. If you want to, do it quietly by submitting at least a 2 weeks notice or whatever company policy requires.
  • Don't immediately run out and buy an Aston Martin or a multi-million dollar mansion on the golf course. Start up your own business invest in some stocks and then gradually ease your way into luxury.

You have to claim in person,  I believe you might have to call in ahead too.  The press will be waiting!

In response to CDanaT

I will be addressed as that crazy eccentric who won half a billion! LOL    Don't worry I will be wearing a LP t-shirt a big sombrero flip flops shorts and a bathrobe and sipping a Margarita...People will remember the outfit and the crazy guy but not the face.  HAHAHA    Or I might hire a hollywood special effects person to make me a realistic rubber mask(like in Mission Impossible) when I'm done I take it off and I'm gone into the crowd just another person.

pickone4me's avatar - lightbulb

I sure do.  You just can't claim anonymously here.

In response to Kumo

Good advice Kumo, but when it comes to the buying of luxury cars department, this doe's not apply to dpoly!  No Nod

That sucks pick. Down here in Texas it has become more common place for our lottery winners to claim by Trust, especially after that one gentleman from the Houston area got harrassed relentlessly by charities and other folks after his win. Sadly he could not deal with the pressure from that and other problems and ended up commiting suicide some years back.
