Power Ball Lottery

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Speaking of the Lottery. I was wondering if conditional green card holders would have problems claiming a big payout if they were to win?

The jackpot is now at a billion dollars!!!

CAN A NON-RESIDENT WIN POWERBALL?

If you legally purchase a Powerball ticket, you can play the game and you can collect prizes. You do not have to be a citizen or a resident to play the game. You can be a tourist. That said, some states do have rules that seem to imply that a winner must produce evidence of citizenship or a federal SSN, but there are other ways to hold back taxes for a winner who does not have a U.S. SSN. Occasionally, some state lawmaker talks about limiting wins to U.S. citizens, but no laws have passed so far.

Chances of getting killed by an asteroid are higher than winning the $2 billion powerball.

That being said we bought our tickets!!

That being said, I think I will go stand in the center of a crater holding a lightning rod. We will see who's odds are better :P
