With the Powerball Jackpot over $700,000,000.00 people are going nuts dreaming. Imagine winning seven hundred million dollars and every last cent is yours.

Here are the steps you have to take if you win....You call me and give me half, OK, just a few million.  No really, the first thing you do is sign the ticket. Then you put the ticket somewhere safe, somewhere it won't get burnt, stolen, wet, destroyed in any way.

Then contact the Idaho Lottery office and ask for David Workman. David is the person you will deal with when you win.  First thing you will tell David is, you want Kevin Mee to be there and that Kevin is to get say five million or so, whatever you're feeling at the time.  After you tell David that, or decide you don't want to share your winnings with me, you will need to get into the Idaho Lottery office, present your ticket, and sign the papers saying you are the winner.

You have 60 days to decide if you want to take the annuity or the cash payout, so you don't have to decide everything right then.  You even have time to set up your support group before the Idaho Lottery would let the public know who you are, so don't delay getting in.  David can set things up with you according to how you want it to roll out.  You have 180 days to claim the jackpot and until you claim it, they can't tell anyone who you are until you do claim it.

Now at seven hundred million dollars, you do have the decision of taking the cash payout of about $490,000,000 or taking $23,333,333 a year for 30 years.  Either way it would be a fun decision to have to make.

Now start dreaming, the drawing is Saturday night and ticket sales get cut off at 8pm so don't be late.

By the way as I wrote this, the jackpot just went to over $800,000,000.
