There were also no winners for the $2 million Match 5 Power Play prize. The $1 million Match 5 prize saw winners in Colorado, Illinois, Louisiana, New York and South Carolina. There were 725,880 winners on Wednesday, winning $9,644,769 in non-jackpot prizes. Odds of winning the jackpot, according toMulti-State Lottery Association, are 1 in 175,223,510.

There’s always plenty of chatter about the jackpot and what people might do with it if they win, and it’s pretty rampant on Twitter. Here’s a sampling of what people are saying:

Soon, you may be able to do that, by the way.

Apparently, money can buy happiness.

    I would give money to people who have helped us when we were going through a struggle. I would start a Animal rescue place, where people can bring their animals when they are going through hard times, and be able to reunite them with their pets once things start getting better. I would also set up FREE CLINICS all across the country where you can bring in your pet for any reason and not pay a thing. From immuniztions to major surgery. I know what it is like to drive around with your cat in the car trying to find a vet who will help him and take payments. Why do people deserve life saving treatments and an animal does not!

    If the Hubby & I Win the Jackpot i’m going to buy us a Big Ol MotorCoach & possibly have a Log Cabin Built out in Montana & help Feed The Poor in other Countries & be about my business Spreading GODs Woed to everyone.

    I would do the exact same thing if I won. Over the years I have noticed that people who are blessed are the ones that give to others. As you well know animals give unconditional love asking for nothing in return. They are the most special beings. I wish you the absolute best in winning. It will definately go to someone with your heart. The BEST Ronda!!!!

    Its not the money…its the amount!

    Money does not make you who you are, the more the money you have the larger you become wether its positive or negitive.

  • Tammy

    I dont even want all of it , just a little would be great! Hell I am the needy for real

  • Renee

    When I win! Get a Lawyer , Financial advisor and a business manager. Then pay my tithes, pay my mortgage off and other bills. Give to cancer research and feed the homeless in my city. After that’s done disappear for a while. Then come back and deal with family members. But I would’nt tell anyone I won. I would say I had an investment payday come in. What? I’m not lying. People get crazy when money is involved. They lose there religon!!!!
