You still running it?
At a rate of 2 tickets per week for 22,136.6 years you win $1,104,634.00
Small problem is that it cost $6,906,633 to get there.
Net Loss: $5,801,999
Return on offense: 16 cents on the dollar.
Note: this is with the Power Play option.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
I have plans for a Darth Vader mask complete with James Earl Jones voice/effects
It's a multi-state lottery. Can't you just clam it in a state that allows anonymity? Would you need to establish residency (i.e., 6 months) in a state that allows anonymity before you claimed it?
Not that I have these problems, I'm just spit ballin'.
That's awesome, .
Sadly, it depends on which state you bought the ticket in
I'm considering running it in the background for 8 hours/day just to see how long it takes to actually hit anything big. In over 23,000 years, I hit 4 #s plus the Power Ball just 4 times (That's the $10K prize, with the power play it's $40K). Not once have I hit the jackpot nor even the $1 million "Match 5 but not the Power Ball" one. In 23,000 years.
Oh well, I guess I'll just cross that bridge when I get there.
So you're saying there's a chance?
You're doing good work son, keep us updated. You can set a sound alert for when it hits. I'd crank the volume in your computer, it might wake you up in the middle of the night.
What's that gotta do with me?
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
My understanding is several lottery winners have waited until they had all the tax attorneys, financial planners et al lined up before announcing their victory to the lotto commission. I'd be waiting as long as possible to claim it, hope the media attention dies down a bit.
Been running one for 3,000 years. It's a little on the lucky side, with a RO$ of $0.22 at the moment. (It hit on a couple of $40,000 prizes 'early' (around the 1,500 year mark).
Wow, I was up around $.18 at one point once my first $40K hit, it was around year 9000 IIRC.
I wonder who the first one of us will be to hit the jackpot. Crazy that multiple people could play this for tens of thousands of years and never come close to winning it all.
The crazy thing is that those $40,000 prizes were within 10 years of each other. I saw the first ding, and watched for a bit to see how the numbers moved around and then another dinged.
Yea, I think you have 180 days to claim it. That's plenty of time to get lawyered up.
I'd sell my winning ticket to someone and remain anonymous. They make bank but have to deal with everyone knowing and I'm still rich.
I'd be nervous to have an unclaimed jackpot Powerball ticket in my possession for that long. I wouldn't want to leave it at the house alone. I wouldn't want to carry it with me. I guess I would have to take it to a bank drop box while I figured things out...
That all sounds fine and dandy, but whom could you trust? It's not like someone would have that kind of money to just trade you. How do you know they would really give you the money, once they get it? Would a signed contract still count? If it comes to the court system, then it will hit the news and you'd be screwed anyway.
Would have to sell it to someone already rich and reputable (Mike Ilitch?) for like $10 Million or something. Straight cash, no paperwork or anything and I never put the money in the bank. Story would go that he bought the ticket himself for the hell of it.
True, it might work. I'd still sell it for more than $10 million though! With the jackpot that high, even with the cash option/taxes, I'd want 100 Mill.
You would give up $500 million for $10 million? You are crazy.
Figured $10 Million would be more money than I would ever need and at that price the buyer shouldn't think twice.
Agreed, but I am greedy
