Believe it or not. I have 3rd? cousin (I don't know the person but my father told me how they were in there) who won 1 million around 2 year ago from a mega million ticket. That is the closest to knowing someone who actually won.

Besides, I don't want to pay tax on those winnings, unlike here where if u win anything on lottos/power ball there's no tax taken out. IT'S ALL YOURS.......lol
Eh so what? Taxes on a few hundred million still net you a couple hundred million, who would turn down a couple hundred million free dollars?

And uh, don't think you can play if you aren't a citizen

Still, even if the taxes were 50% you'd have 50 million dollars. If you don't want it I'll take it!

It would be painful to see that much money dissappear so quickly, but there is still more than enough left...

Deviant and maniacal little trolls those Mayans.
