Mega Millions Winning Numbers
So the age- old story goes, you want to win the Mega Millions and you need to know the winning numbers! Well, get in line! Me too! You would not believe how many times in my history of working for various Cable companies like Time Warner and Cablevision did I get this odd question as a joke from one of my customers on the other end of the line “can I have the winning numbers for the Mega Millions”? Or they might also say “can I have the winning lottery numbers”?
Trust me, if I knew those winning lottery numbers I would not be wasting my life away listening to your bullshit on this line. I would just hang up on your sorry broke ass and would go get drunk out of my mind in the nearest pub. So do not think even for one moment think that I am actually in any way, shape, or form enjoying this conversation, want to be here, or care about what you are going through or what you have to say. I am here just to get my minimum wage and get out of here hopefully after having you buy some ultra expensive service that you neither need nor want and having you pay your two month overdue bill. So let’s just get something straight, I do not give a shit! I do not care if you win the next Mega Millions jackpot or not! For all I care, your broke ass could just rot away in some dirty old basement, it does not really matter. Just pay your bill and get lost! Otherwise, if by some weird ungodly coincidence your ridiculous ass actually wins the Mega Million jackpot, comes across any money at all, or finds out the winning numbers, please be sure to promptly follow up and tell me. Cause I will need you to pay some of my bills too!
What a life! I tell you, customers these days are delusional. So are people in general. We waste so much energy, hope, and money scratching away at those tickets. Most of us never win anything and are forced to go on with our miserable little lives. However, I must admit that the hope makes people happy for like a moment. Some people are really addicted to this whole scratching thing! It really is a form of gambling if you ask me. I mean if you add up all the money that you spend monthly on all those useless lottery tickets, you might find that you would be able to pay the cost of at least one of your overdue bills.
And have you ever noticed that it is always like the most dumb ass person that ends up winning the lottery? Be it the Mega Millions or anything else. I mean let’s face it, you have got to be a total lame ass jerkoff to even have the slightest hope that you will win one of those things. Let alone the fact that you probably have no real education or skills to offer to the world so your only hope of making it big would be by scratching lottery tickets! How Lame!
However lame this might be, playing the Mega Millions is better than not playing anything at all. Like a wise man once said it is better to take some action than no action at all. So I wish all the losers best of lucky with figuring out the winning Mega Millions numbers.
There are many strategies that one could implement in order to find out the Mega Millions winning numbers. Some people choose to look at the past Mega Millions winning numbers and others try to just buy as many tickets as possible. Some people might rely on the horoscope or their numerology reading. Others might even go see a psychic. Not sure if any of these strategies would really work since I am not big on gambling or playing the Mega Millions myself. I guess it is possible. I guess if you are religious, you might pray God for the answer. Maybe this time God will listen and finally make you rich.
I always love those idiots at work for put their money together and invest in the Mega Millions lottery ticket. They say they will share the prize if they win. This actually has happened in a few companies, however, no matter the lever of excitement, most times these sorry employees will have to wake up the next day and go to the job they really hate and continue on with their hopeless miserable lives. My best suggestion would be to eliminate luck out of your success equation as much as possible. Rely on knowledge and solid skills and you are more likely to succeed and get rich that way. You may not even need to know the Mega Millions winning numbers anymore.
Right now the Mega Millions payout is listed at $63 million. That is a whole lot of cash! When I visit megamillions.com, this website encourages the visitors to create an account and start playing right away. On the top right hand side there is an advertisement which if clicked will take you to another website where you can play to win prizes for free. This is so addictive. They get you hooked on the hope of winning and before you know it you are spending real money to win some imaginary prize! Not cool people! This almost reminds me of the Kim Kardashian virtual reality game where you would spend real currency for imaginary prizes. I guess maybe if you want to pay to play and you have nothing better to do with your money I guess that is okay. Why not make Kim Kardashian even richer than she already is.
But can winning the Mega Millions lottery bring about some unforeseen bad luck? I sure think so. Some of the winners have lost it all and even their lives as a result of winning the Mega Millions jackpot. One elderly 86 year old man only won $20,000 and never even cashed his ticket before he was murdered for his prize.
Some people have been convicted of fraud because after winning the Mega Millions they still continued to use public assistance like food stamps to buy groceries. Others got into some dumb investments, hookers, and gambling. The rest wasted their fortune on some frivolous luxuries and still had to work afterwards for the rest of their lives.
Winning the Mega Millions could be dangerous for someone who is a nice and naïve person. Suddenly everyone wants to borrow money from you and be your best friend. It is important to recognize those people for what they really are, thieves and gold diggers. If you are one of those rare kind hearted people you should stay away from those who might try to take advantage of your good fortune.
The unnecessary fame that accompanies winning the Mega Millions if nothing short of a disaster. It can get you into all sorts of trouble and shine all kinds of unnecessary attention on you. It can negatively impact your relationships with friends and family. It can also disrupt your situation at work. I wish that it was not a requirement to publicize your winnings so that if you wanted to keep your good fortune confidential, you could. However, you see the government does not care about the people’s safety. They just want people to keep playing so they can keep making money.
Some people would prefer to buy their Mega Millions tickets online. However, very few states sell them online and have restrictions over the maximum amount a player can spend purchasing Mega Millions tickets over the internet. Most Mega Millions tickets are still sold the old fashioned way at the local grocery stores. This is not exactly fair to the elderly or disabled. Those people cannot always leave their home to go out and buy the Mega Millions lottery tickets. I guess this is same as voting. You have to leave your home to get to the polls. In some states you have to travel a long time to get to those polling booths.
So how about the fact that in order to get your lump sum of Mega Millions winnings, you have to sacrifice a part of your fortune. That is such a scam and so unfair. However, if you won $63 million and they are willing to give you $40 million in a lump sum, well I say just take your $40 million and run with it. Chances are you will not live long enough to need all of this money anyway, but it is better for you to have the money upfront and be able to do whatever you want with it rather than depend on someone else’s budget. I wonder if you want to keep your money in the back without investing it, it would probably take a lot of different bank accounts in order for you to keep all of this money insured. I say don’t worry about it too much. Live your best life now and forget about the rest.
Do not take the annuity option of you happen to win the Mega Millions. Lets say that you won $1 million and you chose the annuity option…what would happen would be that for the next 26 years, you would get $38,500 per year before taxes. You cannot possibly live comfortably on this income even if you tried. So if you have won $1 million, you might as well live like a millionaire and enjoy some luxuries in your life. You do not have to go crazy, but you should live a little! After all, you could die tomorrow and some people may not even stay alive through those long poverty ridden 26 years. The other benefit would be that you would beat the IRS. The tax bracket for the rich people is super low right now so if you only had to pay taxes one time you would save yourself a whole lot of tax filing fees and income tax fees in general. You would also benefit from the interest money that you could earn by opening up a savings account or some other form of reliable investment that offers some interests earnings on your funds.
Did you know that there is even an app for the Powerball and Mega Millions lotteries? Yes, there sure is. It is called the LotteryHUB. This is the official app of the Mega Millions and Powerball lotteries. You just scan your Powerball and Mega Millions tickets and watch the live Mega Millions and Powerball drawings. After reading the reviews for this Lottery HUB app, I became aware that this app has lots of bugs. Overall it is a cool convenient app for watching the live Mega Millions and Powerball drawings. You could see the recent winners as well. However, there are login issues where you might have to attempt to login about 25 times in order for you to achieve success. You also might have issues entering your winning numbers as they have a tendency to either come through incorrectly, incompletely, or not at all. Some of your inputs might even disappear on you if you try to enter too many numbers. Deleting lottery numbers could be a pain in the behind as well. Overall, if this LotteryHUB app would be debugged, it would be a great tool for the millions of Mega Millions and Powerball hopefuls out there.
Are you aware of the Mega Millions email scam? Yes, there sure is one. So many scammers use famous organizations and enterprises like the Mega Millions in order to defraud unsuspecting innocent people of their hard earned money. These scammers know that the economy is in the toilet as usual and that there are many people who would do a lot for some extra cash. These gullible people will give out their banking information in order to have the “winnings” wired directly to their personal bank account. Or, they will accept a fake check and send money back to cover the “transaction fees”. Sometimes the victims might be required to call some number to verify their winnings and when they call could be told to keep the winnings confidential.
If you did not buy a lottery ticket for the Mega Millions, you did not win any money. Mega Millions would never contact you by email asking you to keep things confidential and to hand over your personal banking information. If you see typos in the email and it seems to be outside of your home state be on high alert! If you call a number only to get someone with broken English on the other line, be warned! You should instead Google your local Mega Millions phone number and contact them directly if you want to know whether or not you have won. You should never give any money upfront to collect your earnings. Actually, the Mega Millions is not an organization at all. It is a lottery game created by the states. So if someone sends you an email claiming to be “from the Mega Millions”, be very suspicious!
Have you ever considered that the Mega Millions might be rigged? What a surprise! A program run by the government worth millions of dollars involves some sort of fraud and mismanagement! Unfortunately, when it comes to big money our government is all about corruption! Back in 2012, a woman named Bleichroth took $145 and went to visit a QT convenience store. She bought 145 lottery tickets using Quick Pick, which is a computer that is supposed to select your numbers for you randomly. When she came home, she realized that two tickets had exactly the same numbers on them. The two tickets were not exact copies. So this definitely looks like a government scam to me. I guess this is why I do not play the lottery. I just feel like if I give you a dollar you should give me something of value back for it. I guess to some people hope and a brief high of excitement is worth the money. I would rather spend my money elsewhere.
So I have looked into some possible strategies for winning the Mega Millions. Basically, you pay $1 for every seven numbers and you can play every Tuesday and Thursday. Some folks think they need to include all possible mega numbers and keep the same quick pick. I guess this strategy is supposed to give you a better shot at winning the grand prize. Monthly, this strategy will cost you about $120. For those who believe in wining the Mega Millions one day, I guess parting with this $120 monthly could be worth it if you actually do win the Mega Millions one day. For those of us who are more practical, you might think about the fact that $120 is enough to pay at least two major bills every month and keep you out of debt. So I guess the choice is yours in this case.
I know that many of you Mega Millions hopefuls are obsessed with winning. After all having that money can change your life for the best. However, be careful what you wish for because you might just get it. And if you are still unhappy once you are rich something is definitely wrong with you and you will need to take a good hard look at yourself in the mirror and go see a therapist.
Some people get crazy after winning the Mega Millions and this is because they are not used to having this sort of money. Some professionals recommend seeking out lawyers and financial advisers to help you manage your fortune. However, if you’ve got half a brain, you actually just need to do a bit of research yourself so that you can avoid having to pay all those high lawyer and financial advisor fees.
Do you believe in visualizing the exact sum you are going to win and seeing yourself with that money? Maybe picturing exactly what you are going to wear and what you are going to do when you win? Maybe you can imagine how it is going to feel? Perhaps you just want to say a little prayer? Some past winners of the Mega Millions claim that this strategy really works. I do not know if this is simply to gain viewership and popularity, which in turn would give them more money? But as for me, I just take all this money and split it up between different government insured bank accounts. Maybe I get some interest on the funds. After that I just live my life.
Also, please remember not to spend more money than you can afford buying those Mega Millions tickets. Remember that there are way more losers than winners and you do not want to wake up the next day only to realize that you are a sore broke ass loser! Buy your tickets, but stay in your budget!
Did you know that even if you win the Mega Millions, you have not really won until you cash in your winning ticket with the Mega Millions folks? So hopefully you have a safe at your home so that you can guard your winning ticket with your life.
The truth of the matter is that becoming rich will make you more of the person that you already are. So if you are a responsible hard working individual who lives within their means, you will likely continue to live that way even if you are rich. You might buy yourself a few nice things, but you will also be able to manage your money effectively and have a long- term outlook. If you happened to be a generous individual, than you might donate some of your funds to good causes, well, hopefully you are not too generous and you still leave enough for yourself to live comfortably for the rest of your life.
However, if you are a spendthrift and you overindulge in luxurious items that you cannot afford, you will likely run through the money very quickly and not be able to enjoy your life to the fullest. Also, if you are not very financially savvy, you might not take into account the tax consequences of some of your purchasing decisions. So you might find yourself having to work again even after winning the Mega Millions.
