I'm also getting some tonight. I know I won't win but it's always nice to dream about all the shit I would buy.

can there be a max on it? if someone doesn't win by the x time do they reduce a number or something to make the odds more favorable? Would be pretty sweet to be the only winner and it hit 1 billion+.

I don't believe there is a limit. I was reading earlier that it could potentially reach $1BILLION before Saturday's drawing. If no one wins, it will definitely go over that mark..

Yep, some buddies from work and I increased our chances to 1:2.92 million. After the market this week, it might be our only saving grace.

You and slow99 should date. You both have passive aggressiveness down pat.

I won't play but if I did and I won, I would probably have a heart attack and die. That's a poop load of money. You'd have to be a douche if you didn't use some of that $ to help the less fortunate.

I was laughing at one of the guys on Sportscenter. He said if he wins he is buying half of the Raiders. Lol

i'd cash out i don't think I would take the drawn out payments. I figure that would be about 550-700 million i'd put 50 million in a rainy day fund and another 50 for the kids. at least 100 million in investments that can't really be touched. at least 10 million in real estate. at least 10 million in vegas. and who knows with the rest. Probably buy a shit ton of the huge apartment buildings to run as a business.

Cash option after taxes you're looking at $300-325 million.

I could probably manage to live on the dividends from a portfolio of that size.

News earlier said 430mil cash option when it was only sitting at 700. I'm sure if it is already at 800 then there truely is a decent shot for it to be at 1billion which would put a cash option in the mid to upper 600s.
