Same here, I spent 10 and only got the 05. I wonder if I could cut and paste them onto one ticket.

Do you know what a blind trust is or what it does?? It helps you remain anonymous... no one would ever know who the beneficiary is.

Who gives a shit, you didnt win so your trust can stay blind lol... If I won, I ll give millions to family and friends and then change my name and move the f away and buy an island. I would go with a low key name, like Sammy Hoffa lol.

To claim your prize you have to be photographed. Also a prize so big is divided into multiple payments... So much for leaving the country to avoid paying taxes on it.

hardly something Id share with the world, probably will tune the car or keep it altogether etc, and most of the money will go into trust fund. I cant see the point of giving stuff out, its not exactly you win powerball every year, so if you got lucky / better be smart about it and hold on to the cash.

honestly, i would funnel it back into the system... after taxes, it's roughly $368,000,000 cash value... if you take that and disperse it throughout hundreds of banks across the U.S. and even [worst case scenario] with 1% interest, that's $3,680,000 a year from just sitting on your ass... take 50% tax from that, you're still a hella baller... at that point, no, i still would not give away my 3er... i would probably make it a sleeper if anything. ^__^

If I won hundreds of millins, I would give my 335 away to a friend of mine that loves it and would kill for one of his own. He's a good guy, and has always helped me out with car stuff!

Great plan. Alexander Keith's IPA FTW by the way! Dying to get back to the great white north to have one.

I think I'd turn mine into a sweet track car and have fun with that on weekends...when I wasn't busy driving the crap out of my 458!

I give 10% of any winning away to charity (animals, homeless, etc). Yes, I would give my 3 away and pay maintenance / gas / upkeep costs for life for whomever got it.

I would pick up an X6, M5, RR Evoque and go on one hell of a vacation
