Wow someone became rather rich rather fast if they claim it in time. Grats to whoever the winner is and may they spend it WISELY.

The latest reports say there are 3 winning tickets. I don't think there will be a problem with claiming the winnings in time.

I'd have to say the real winners of this lottery were the lottery organizers themselves. I read that Americans spend at least $1.5 billion dollars at a chance to win a $640 million dollar jackpot. Bad mathematics.

"Grats to whoever the winner is and may they spend it WISELY."

Yeah. Wise advise Honest, but most people who I have come into contact with that win large sums tend to spunk the lot in an amazingly short space of time.

Nah, U.S. payout is usually about 60%, though still much lower than typical casino slot machines that could payout up to 90%.
