I got 20 quick picks. Hoping my good karma, by letting the lady in front of me know that she forgot a ticket, will help me win. Can't win if you don't play, right? :bigsmile:

I purchased a couple today.

April Baby and Lil Misfit, How will this work in Illinois since they haven't been paying winners of lottery tickets lately? I did hear that it is supposed to be handled differently since multiple states are involved in powerball.

A huge swath of downtown Fresno has been under a power outage for almost half an hour now. I figure the rush to buy powerball tickets must have overwhelmed the grid! :o ;))

We have one. JD's calling it "Missi's All The Kittah's Fund" and he agrees I can have All The Kittahs, should we win. :appl:

WOW. Just Wow.

If we could I'd propose a joint ticket. Everyone puts in 10 bucks. 100 people. And we split it evenly.

If we win we are opening that animal refuge where we refuse no animal in need. Anyone wanting to join in with us on the animal refuge dream is welcome! I think the pot is now up to a billion!

Wow Sonnyjane, I just read your post. 1.3 billion! Even after taxes that is a lot of money that can do so much good. :appl:

I won $8. We had the powerball number on two of our quick picks.

Sorry Missy, $8 won't do much to help your animal refuge!

I so hope you win!

For an admittedly selfish comment meant for all animal lovers, I have a daughter studying to be a DVM, it's extremely difficult and very expensive. Please support your veterinarians!

Thank u missy & others for loving animals & bling:)

I re-started/joined an online syndicate game that includes Powerball as one of 3 games, the other two being US Mega-millions and an Italian game.

Ha that's why I love this board! That's exactly what I would do too! I'd help out just about every shelter I could, donate to any reputable refuge (retired elephants, circus cats, lab animals, etc.), and I'd also help pay for anti-poaching measures for animals in the wild!

I only need like, ehh... $100 million ;-) They can have the rest.

My office does a weekly pool already, and they bought extras, but my mom and I both got tickets as well. Anytime one of the family members buys it's agreed that its a split among my parents and all of us kids.

When I win, I'm buying a big bundle of land in Hawaii. I'll have an animal sanctuary and homestead. Hey, one can dream!

I bought 20 yesterday and corrupted a co-worker into doing the same. If I win I'm going to try not to spend it all on bling.

We're building a massive sports complex-dance, football, tennis, martial arts, everything we can think of that we can entice instructors to move here. Things people of all ages will be able to do, 24/7, affordable. And I'm buying off my Taekwondo instructor b/c I love her class and want private lessons.

Schooling for people also. And the kittahs...always the kittahs.

Our daughter asked what that amount of money would mean. I said, "you know honey, we would have a lot of money..more money than pretty most of the people on the planet. But really, we *wouldn't* have a lot of money, b/c there's so much we want to do for other people, and that takes money. you can do a lot of good w/money like that and that's where our hearts are" Sadly, it's not people like us who end up w/that kind of windfall. We're just the dreamers and list makers of all the things we'd do.
