Sorry folks......I didn't match the numbers but I still won. I got to play the game and spend the money in my head without having the money screw up my life.

If I had matched the numbers though.....all my employees would have been able to retire and I would have offered a bunch of people new RVs

True Dave...
Did I hear someone say that within 3 years over 75% of previous winners were broke ?!?

Sure would like to break that stat, wouldn't we ?

I was reading that on MSN last week - they did a write up on people that lost their butts - one gal was over $1M in dept for a $2M lottery!

It was saying the biggest losses were not being able to say no to family, friends, and hardship cases. Some were just 5 year binges of high roller spending and drugs. A trash hauler is trying to get his job back after loosing his entire fortune in just a few years.

Wow!

I think some of the problems that the people had when they won large sums of money is that they've never had to manage that much money or freedom. I've seen similar disasters when a second generation has taken over a family business.

My BIL works in a factory where several have won at different times & he knows of 2-3 that are in jail for failure to pay the taxes after they've already pissed off all the money.
I agree with JB2, I'd like opportunity to break that statistic!!
