US lottery sees record $370-M jackpot


newsinfo.inquirer.net

NEW YORK -- Gamblers in the United States were lining up Tuesday for their chance to win an estimated 370 million dollars in the world's biggest ever lottery jackpot.

The Mega Millions top prize has now rolled over 15 times without a winner, with the most recent draw last Friday promising a relatively modest 267 million dollars.

But snowballing sales of tickets have ramped up the jackpot and in turn sparked further interest in the draw, with the one-in-176-million chance of picking the winning six numbers apparently not putting people off.

That's a lot of money! Who will be the lucky winner?

But.............

"One certain winner is the US treasury"

"the winning ticket will also inherit a 130-million-dollar federal tax bill and will have to pay further state taxes depending on where they live"

Well, i had high hopes of cashing in very soon, but the lottery Commission made a mistake and drew different numbers than i had.
