This always cracks me up- people don't buy the 200 million tickets. Instead, everyone just waits till some crazy number comes along and loses their mind- scoffing at a "measly 200 million".

I would build/develop an artist co-op community where the artist would exchange teaching for rents due. Our children need an outlet, whether it be wood working, painting, weaving, etc. Keep those hands busy!!!

If you win here do you have to claim it here or can you go elsewhere and claim it?

If I won I'd prefer to leave with my ticket on the next plane out to avoid being robbed/murdered/skinned alive/canibbalized.

You can generally claim a prize of under $600 at any retailer in the state where you bought the ticket, but be advised that some retailers will not carry the cash needed to pay higher prizes. Sometimes, a convenience store that has safety concerns may not carry the cash. In a few places, there are "super retailers" that can pay up to $25,000. Look for a clerk wearing a cape and tights.

Each state lottery has its own central computer system. There are about seven different system platforms operated by three different vendors in a highly competitive market. The state lottery systems are not interconnected. As powerful and as fast as computers are, you might imagine the power and cost needed to develop a system in each state to record and store play numbers for the entire claim period for all states and that is always connected to every other state so each state is instantly aware of plays made and cashed. A system of transferring money back and forth between states would also have to be maintained as states cash each other’s tickets. While this system would be convenient for the rare player who travels, the vast majority of winning tickets are purchased by someone who is close to the lottery terminal where it was purchased. You do NOT have to cash the ticket at the same store, but you do have to cash the ticket in the same state. You can also claim any prize - and prizes over $600 - at the state lottery headquarters. You can even claim winning tickets by mail. Click on a state at the map link below to find the address and possibly a claim form:

i would donate to the local animal shelter here, try to support flight for the pets program and move closer to my family.
needless to say, work would not be in my future.

I'd fly out of here in a minute and go to a Caribbean island that has their s**t together like St. Martaan or St. Barts.
