Default The Mega Lottery $370 Million Dollars

The Mega Lottery is now $340 Million Dollars.

Just think of the entertainment system you can get if you won that much money.

By Mega Lottery do you mean Mega Millions or Powerball? I would assume Mega Millions. I'll have to buy a ticket

And hell, with $340 mil I'd buy my own IMAX theater, never mind a measly home theater system. (I'm not kidding either).

Do these US lotteries pay that in one lump sum or is it over a number of years? Either way, that's a lot of wonga!

May I suggest the following numbers: 4 8 15 16 23 42

Normally it's over 20 years if you want to avoid paying tax. If you take the lump sum, you have to hand over half of it to the IRS.

The Lottery is a tax on people that are bad at math.

Lol, agree with that sentiment Maxx_75.

But you have to be in it to win it, after all, somebody takes home the booty...

That's funny. I bet that would be a split pot though.
