    I'll play $1 (1) if the pot is over $70 million, and (2) I happen to remember to buy a ticket while I'm already out.

    What would I do if I won?

    I'm not going to lie. It would be the most epic downward spiral of self-indulgent debauchery that the world has ever seen.
    Wouldn't it be 40% of $259M if one took the cash option?

    In other news, I didn't win sadly.

    Put down one dollar and ended up winning two (got the Mega Ball and nothing else). Letting that entire two dollars ride on the next one. Yes, I like living on the edge.

    I'd seriously consider not telling anyone. Just tell them I'm retiring early and I did well with my 401k's.

    I call that reinvesting the dividend. No one at the gas station thinks I'm funny.

    I don't know what Ohio's law is, but some states won't let you claim your prize anonymously.

    How much Would you offer to Duke for them to allow you to burn down Cameron Indoor?

    According to the article below, now half a billion (and will likely be even more once the drawing finishes)!
