|Mega Millions is high again!|
Tuesday's jackpot for Mega Millions is certainly the talk of the nation. What's your plans if your planning on playing for the huge jackpot?
The Mega Millions is once again rising to record setting amounts. So I am guessing by game time it will be over $700 million by draw time.
Are you game?
I know that your risk is 1:345. So that means the odds of winning is one in 345 million.
If you're not aware of the game, it's pretty simple. The Mega Millions is a multi-state game that covers 45 states including the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The cost of playing a Mega Million ticket is $1. The ticket comes with a Multiplier (except in California).
The jackpot starts at $15 million.
The drawings are on Tuesday and Friday night at 10:59pm EST.
The game cost only $1 per unit. You must pick five numbers from 1 to 75. When you're done, you get the opportunity to pick a Mega Ball. Out of 15 numbers, you will have to pick one Mega Ball number. The jackpot results are a match of 5 White Balls + 1 Megaball. A player can win $1 million (if you score 5 out of 5 without the Megaball).
The game in states that are participating included a multiplier. The multiplier is a function that allows the player to increase their wins by a special X ball. The multiplier is (1X), (2X), (3X), and (4X).
Powerball is played in 45 states including The District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands.
The cost of playing a Powerball ticket is $2. The ticket comes with the Power Play (except in California).
The Power Play cost $1 dollar. There is a set prize amount for Power Play addition. You can earn up to $1 million or $2 million upon the Power Play (if you score 5 out of 5 without the Powerball).
The drawings are on Wednesday and Saturday night at 10:59pm EST.
The Powerball jackpot usually starts at $40 million.
Okay, I know there are some who are novice and never had an experience at playing.
The Mega Millions and Powerball tickets that are played cannot be canceled.
Be careful when making a bet decision.
Of course you have to be over 18 years old to play a Mega Millions or Powerball ticket.
All results for Mega Millions and Powerball are for the state that you've purchased your ticket from.
The impact of being a millionaire comes with a price. You could blow money fast in a few years. Believe me there have been many Americans who lavish in luxury only to be broke in less than 10 years.
Of course, if you're the lucky one. You already know that many friends and family members will be on your case. You will be bothered by almost everyone in the junk food media.
Believe me I am a single man and I bet you my former friends, girlfriends and family members I don't speak to will come out of the woodwork. They'll act like everything is cool and I am all giving!
Say if you're in the group pool. If you're in the pool and your group won, that one person who didn't play will try to sue the group for a portion of the earnings.
Hey, if you're a single person (not married), you'll be getting requests from suitors. Of course, if you're separated from your spouse or have children, expect the domestic family courts to take a lump out of your winnings.
The IRS and state taxes will be paid immediately upon the victory.
It may take up to a year before you collect the first lump sum of payment. Each winning Mega Millions and Powerball ticket carries a lump sum cash payment option.
Best advice for all who win the lottery, is keep a cool head. Let's cover the 10 things about winning the lottery according to me. You can use this advice if you want to!
The first thing you do is write your name down on the back of the winning ticket. Say if you lose the jackpot ticket! If you have forgotten to sign the ticket and it gets lost, then it's your word against the winner's.
Second, make sure you cancel out your Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or any other social networking website your on. That's the next thing that happens when you're a winner.
Third, you cancel your phone number and limit your email intake. Obviously you'll be swamped with phone numbers and well wishers asking if you're willing to shelve out a little cash.
Fourth, hire a qualified lottery attorney. Make sure you have a qualified attorney who specializes in handling large sums of money. Don't assume every attorney is well respected in handling your financial earnings.
Fifth, don't quit a job until you are sure you've won the lottery. Don't rush to judgment about being a lottery winner. Sometimes a person who wins the lottery never expects it to happen so don't sit around the house hoping the day will come you'll be the millionaire.
Sixth, pay off debts to college loans, house, billings, and credit cards.
Seventh, invest your money in a trust fund if you have children or family members you can trust if you should die.
Eighth, have fun with your earnings. Don't blow it on things that obviously will attract negative attention.
Ninth, be humble. Cause money will change a person when they're rich.
Lastly, The Have-Nots Will Always Try To Make You Feel Guilty About Winning. Ignore Them And Be Happy About Your Success.
