Jackpot now estimated at $500 million, and likely to grow tomorrow with the mad rush to buy tickets before the drawing.
5 out of 6 pays 250K
I don't know if it's a disproportionate are bought by people who don't know how to handle money, or we only hear about those people because they make poor decisions and become news.
If I won on Wednesday, I would first tell my wife. Then I would get a tax attorney, financial planner, and accountant, or several. Those are the only people who would know. Our families would be told that I lucked into a huge injury case and can't discuss the settlement.

May by my first lotto ticket ever tomorrow
Nope, 5 out of 6 in the power ball = $1,000,000
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
You mean you wouldn't go on facebook and write I WON THE LOTTO, BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA . . . . interesting approach
ok, 5 out of 6 pays 250K on Megamillions those cheap bastards
If I win, I'm gonna be like Oprah giving out cars....except I'll be the only one receiving them.
"I GET A CAR! AND I GET ANOTHER CAR! AND ANOTHER CAR! YOU GET SO MANY CARRRRRRRRRRRRZ!"
I'm not gonna win, though, so I'm not actually going to do that.
I'd buy a car dealership and offer 5-star recruits so many 'special financing offers' and 'added options' to the vehicle of their choice, it would make T.Pryor jelly..
Unfortunately the lottery commission will publish your name and a news article. You are immediately surrounded by a pack of wolves.
i'd drive to every homeless shelter i could find and make it rain.
If I win, giant sparty will become reality...
Hell if that's all you want you could just go to Bronco's sex party up in Saginaw this weekend.
That'd be a nice touch, very nice.
In all seriousness, I wonder what a project like that would cost. Obviously it wouldn't be made of bronze, but a nice looking, structurally sound structure.
There are ways to claim it anonymously. It varies state by state as to whether or not you can.
Please come to my place first.
Not in Michigan!
FWIW, This guy I know got (or would have gotten had he bought his regular ticket) the 5 out of 6 in the regular Florida Lotto, so it was a little different than the multi state drawings.
Sucks for you guys.
In Texas, you can't remain anonymous, but you can claim the winnings as a trust.
Not in the olden days ('80's). My brother (a fellow Spartan and RCMB poster) got 5 of 6 back in '86, and he only won about $1500.
Oh hell yes!
Yeah. That blows. Pretty sure they require winners have a press conference...the very last thing anyone winning a large sum, or even a smaller sum, wants
wear a hat and sunglasses, seen a few winners do that
I think anyone who wins should be able to remain anonymous.
Its enough pressure to go from broke to getting by to a millionaire, let alone everyone knowing who you are.
There has to be a way around that in states where you have to go public.
Perhaps hire multiple attorneys. Have an agreement drawn up where the attorney claims the prize and them has to give you the proceeds after it is claimed. Let the attorney sign the ticket once the paperwork is done. Have the arrangement quadruple checked by all the attorney's to make sure it is legal.
As I posted in another thread, I know the guy who won in August. He moved 1,500 miles away from Michigan to get away from it all. It's only a matter of time until those where he lives now figure out who he is.
