I bought some tickets before I flew out of Phoenix sky harbor yesterday.

If I win, I wonder what kind of gold bonus deal GREE would give me? Wonder if they would give me 15,000 vaults of gold for the price of 10,000?

I believe its your federal tax rate + your in state tax rate roughly+/- 10%. Your looking at at least 30 to 45% depending on tax bracket.

Lottory is not regarded as income, ie. no charge of tax in UK. Don't know the situation in US

Pretty sure you'd use SOME of your winnings to buy some henchmen.

its up to over 550 with an estimated 350-400 million after taxes. judging that I would spend about $25k on gold I'd hope for at least 100k gold... Biggest individual sale for gree ever... Then just store the rest of your money in a bank and live off the interest lol

The $16 I spent trying to win the jackpot and lost feels better than the $50 I spent on the Android exclusive pvp event that I lost to someone who won who ended up with a couple of thousand fewer wins than me.

Wow, that is a big pot!
For euro people, there is euromillions, but the largest win ever was around 150 million (euro) IMHO.
But it is taxfree.
