There was no jackpot winner in the latest Mega Millions drawing that took place this past Tuesday night, but 18 lucky players matched the first 5 numbers for a $250,000 prize, including 2 from New Jersey.

The jackpot has been steadily growing since Feb. 1, when megamillions.com reports a $93 million prize was claimed by winners in Michigan and Indiana. Mega Millions has now gone 12 drawings without a winner being selected.

Yahoo News reports the largest payout for a single lottery ticket took place in February 2006, when a Powerball jackpot with an annuitized payout of $365 million was won by eight people who worked together at a meat processing plant in Nebraska. In that case, they opted for the $177 million cash payout.

The New Jersey Lottery has used the slogan, “It pays to dream.” And dreaming of luxuries to spend your winnings on is half the fun of playing. For instance, according to aolnews.com, 110-acre private islands in Thailand are available starting at $160 million.

In November 2006, Jackson Pollock’s “No. 5, 1948” and Willem de Kooning’s “Woman” sold for an estimated $140 million and $137.5 million. You could afford to pay for one of them and have funds to spare.

For those who would rather be more conservative with their cash, $2 million will buy you and 10 friends a trip into space.

Winning a lottery prize can change your life, but people always need to handle their winnings with care. Lotterypost.com reports Curtis Sharp Jr., an air-conditioning technician from Newark, N.J., who won $5 million playing Lotto in 1982.

Sharp filmed commercials for the New Jersey Lottery Division, became something of a local celebrity — and blew his money on cars and fine living.

Before long, he was borrowing against his future payout checks. Eventually the cash disappeared, and he moved to Tennessee and became a minister.

According to thatmoney.com, 80% of all lottery winners file for bankruptcy. That’s because they don’t know the true power of money and they don’t appreciate how crucial it is to make solid decisions.

Stay within your means. Invest, but it only takes one dollar to win..

Casey Anthony Trial Underway; Florida Mom Accused of Killing 2-Year-Old Daughter

Casey Anthony Trial Updates

Casey Anthony Trial Updates

One of the most momentous trials in Florida history began in Clearwater this morning as dozens of potential jurors filed into the Pinellas County Courthouse for the start of Casey Anthony’s first-degree murder trial.

The start of Anthony’s trial comes nearly three years after the search for Anthony’s two-year-old daughter Caylee captured the nation’s attention. Some 1,500 to 1,800 people scoured the area near Anthony’s home, making it one of the largest searches ever for a missing child.

Casey Anthony Trial Updates

Caylee was last seen on June 16, 2008, and her remains were found in December 2008 near her family home. Casey Anthony has long maintained her innocence and claims her daughter was abducted by a babysitter.

“We are about to begin jury selection the case of the state of Florida versus Casey Anthony,” Orange-Osceola Chief Judge Belvin Perry said at the start of the hearing. “This is a criminal case.”

Anthony cried as Perry read the charges against her, which include capital murder, aggravated child abuse, aggravated manslaughter of a child and misleading law enforcement. The prosecution, Perry told the jury, is seeking the death penalty.

About $500,000 has already been spent in the Anthony case and officials estimate her trial will cost Florida taxpayers an additional $360,000. Roughly 600 journalists from around the world have requested media credentials, leading to speculation that coverage of the trial will even outweigh that of O.J. Simpson’s 1995 murder trial; which, at the time, was often referred to as the “Trial of the Century.”

Anthony, who has spent much of the past three years incarcerated in the Orange County Jail in Orlando, was transferred to the Pinellas County Jail today for the jury selection phase of her trial.
