    I spent 10 bucks on it. Doubt I will win, if I did that would be pretty damn cool. Good luck to anyone that has a ticket. Someone's life is about to change dramatically.

    I thinks its 167million you can play every combo to win for sure
    would suck if 10 people won it thuo then it would cost you millions.

    Personally I'd much rather have $10 extra a month than buy a lottery ticket.

    Even if the odds were 1 in 10000 I still wouldn't buy a ticket. But for the odds of winning lottery as it stands now...utter waste of money.

    Didn't you know the lottery is just another form of tax. Besides, I wouldn't want that much money anyways or I'd turn into a complete douche.

    You could be right about that. I had one boss in the past who owned about 3 businesses and he was a multimillionaire. Was quite a nice guy imho.

    But, it's like that saying, (Money brings power and power corrupts). So who knows.

    it sucks because they are going to get raped in taxes TWICE. once when they take their payout and the second time at the end of the year when its time to file income taxes. since lottery winnings are considered unearned income, they are going to get put in a different tax bracket and bent over again. so in all honestly, winning a lottery just insnt worth it.

    I thought the super rich didn't pay tax ? That's how it seems to be here in NZ last I heard.

    If I'd ever win a bigger amount on the lottery I'd make a contest here on guru, handing out 20 2500€ rigs..
    No ****.. I'd really do it..

    You'd give computers to privileged people who already have computers?

    I'm sure your local animal shelter would appreciate said hypothetical money.
