    So, did anyone get tickets? We bought $10 worth.

    Can't win if you don't play, right?

    I saw an article about this and photos of people queuing to buy tickets ... wow £400m is huge!!! :wacko:

    The most we've seen in the UK is around the £200m mark for the Euromillions draw :wow: Imagine winning so much!

    Yep. We played. $5 worth. I live in Ohio. It is the only state where you can set up a blind trust so that no one will ever know who won the big bucks. If we win, NO ONE will ever know. Not even family. We will share, but the money would be delivered by a lawyer and there will be no way to trace it.

    And I am willing to split it with other winners. There is a thing as too much money.

    I can't remember, aside from today, the last time I played the lottery. I don't know all the rules. I has to ask to make sure I played the right one!

    You sound like me. I only play when it gets ridiculously high. But I went to buy a ticket a few years ago and some lady in front of me (dressed to the nines) handed the clerk $40 for her tickets. I couldn't keep my mouth shut. It just popped out. You spend $40 a week on the lottery?! She said NO I SPEND $40 A DAY. I was shocked. Our kids were still kind of young and I thought to myself how I could spend that money on my kids. Shoes, clothes, food and other things that were necessities.

    They just announced there was one winner in Maryland. They also said in Maryland you can hide your identity. Didn't know that.

    I saw the Maryland announcement. I actually saw it on FB where a friend was joking that his friend won. Apparently his friend is quite religious and won't gamble.

    There is now an article that said three winning tickets purchased in Kansas, Illinois and Maryland. Still haven't checked ours. You still can win $2 to $250,000. Shoot, I'd take that.

    The worst "win" I've ever had is £2.20 on a Euromillions ticket - and they cost £2.00!!!
    I guess it was slightly better than not winning :hehe:

    I won $50 on an instant once. I think we won $83 on the regular super lotto. That's it.

    Haven't checked ours. 161 people had the first 5 numbers but not the mega ball. They each won $250,000.
