You can live like a king with $2 million dollars in Mexico, since the dollar is stronger than the peso and the cost of living in Mexico is much cheaper than in the U.S.

I thought one of the eligibility requirements was that you be a "resident." Guess it depends on their definition of "resident".

The money should be confiscated and then some of it used by the government to send the illegal immigrant and their entire family BACK to where they came from. Any money left should be used to deport other illegals.

If there was any justice in this world, that's what would happen.

I think also if you're already wealthy, you shouldn't be able to win the lottery. But I don't think that's really an issue as I don't see rich people buying lottery tickets. But just as a hypothetical...if you have $10 million and win $5 million in the lottery, you shouldn't get to keep your winnings. It should go back in the pot or be donated. Right?

What if you have $10 million dollars and you win $100 million dollars playing the lottery ? Should that person be able to keep their winnings in your opinion ?
