@tsarstepan,
There are jackpot winners in Maryland, Illinois, and Kansas, so far.

I think I won $3--I had one number plus the megaball number.

@firefly,
I bought mine online through the state's lottery website. I haven't checked my numbers but I didn't get an email so I assume the IL ticket wasn't me.

I spent $5 on my 1st ever lottery tickets.
I would start by giving $1M to every A2Ker who gave one of my posts a "thumbs-up."
OH, POOP.

@tsarstepan,
MY wife told me a joke about a woman who says to her husband: What would you do if I won the lottery???
He said: I would split the money with you, and kiss your sorry ass goodbye...
She said: Fine; I just won ten dollars, so here is five, and now get the hell out...

@Fido,
I play the lottery whenever it gets above $100Million. I put in one buck per hundred mil. Mr B once heard the buzz about a big prize and assumed I was buying tickets. He asked me and I said, "Yes. I bought 3." He handed me $3 and said, "Better buy some more. That much money changes people and we wouldn't want to know which one of us won."

Money does change people; and I would like to think of all the good I might do; but I am certain it would make me an asshole like just about everyone who makes money a priority... I have a friend who is deliberately homeless so that he can be there and provide for his children who still live with his estranged wife... These are great kids, and he is often a hard and demanding father, but he loves them, and is doing well with them... It does not matter how much money I have in my pockets when they leave my house because I can get more... But ultimately, I can do very little for them, except try to help...I wish their mother would be more help, since she wants to drive the father away though he really is good with the kids... I don't want to drop a dime on here, but something should change and then where would the kids be??? I can't afford to house them, though perhaps I could by doing without some luxuries... You see; having little money already means I am a little asshole when to be a human being might require that I turn my heart inside out for them...

@msolga,
I think I won a total pot of -$5. Now how can I split that up Ms Olga? Razz

@tsarstepan,
I'll settle for an ice cream then, tsar. Smile


At least you got your money back!

@msolga,
Technically that's a loss of 5 dollars. Please note the convenient negative sign in front of the dollar figure. Razz

@tsarstepan,
Bought no tickets, had no desire to buy any tickets.
