Could only imagine what the winner would do, if both lotteries went past the $1 Billion mark for each one; and one person had the sole winning tickets for both lotteries.


Take the yearly payments or take the lump sum for each lottery ????

I would take the yearly payments -- That way me and my heirs would be guaranteed income for 30 years !

If you take the lump sum you lose about 40% off the top then the taxes.

So you 2 are saying you couldn't live off a taxable 600 million? I can see where it'd be tough eeking out a living on 20 million a year I'd be consulting a good income attorney on what to do. I'd probably take the lump sum, put it in a tax friendly country and invest. I'm sure if you stayed in the US it'd be redistributed.

I'd take the lump also and run. I wouldn't trust the establishment from confiscating the annual payments down the road soon.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???

The lottery is a tax for people who are bad at math.

I would also take the lump sum for those reasons. I would convert quite a few million over to precious metals also.

I agree 100% and I've used this line before myself. I have probably played the lottery 4 times in 50 years. Our office always goes in together when there is a big pot and I'm the only one that doesn't participate.

I'm going to pick up a ticket for the next round. I've wasted $2 on stupider things.

I've read somwhere that the yearly payments are not transferable to your Aries.

I've never thought of it that way. That's an interesting take on it!
