    I Agree!, Stack47.  You truly understand the crucial difference between a person/household becoming a post-U.S.A. Fed, State, and County Income Taxed, net:  tens-of-thousandsaire, hundreds-of-thousandsaire, one-millionaire, multi-millionaire, and the BEST-case scenareo a NET $5M+ millionaire lottery gambler solo or household winner.

    Kudos to these survey participants, it was great to receive their "winer's hindsite solo and household beliefs and conclusions."

    Cool

    I think the whole point that the lottery office is making is a somewhat convoluted yet valid point......

    They had a million in assets even if it was for a brief imaginary moment......

                  I am a citizen of Indiana and I have the birth certificate to prove it!!  "Proud" and "great" are subjective and can change from time to time.

                      Sounds like they've done everything right, in particular buying the marina rather than the yacht. If they were a younger couple at the time of winning, it only makes sense to make the investment in something that will not only keep them busy until retirement time, but also give back to the community in the form of jobs. If they had children still at home, double bonus in teaching them hard work and pride in ownership rather than sitting on their butts with video games and toys. Hearty congratulatons to the Hamers for doing a lottery win right!

                      Party

                      Also sounds like the Footes are well grounded with their win that allowed them a few extras with their large family. Big families are not easy to support these days. A 'smaller' win like that still brings out the gimmies, and IMO makes it harder for the winner to enjoy. They've found their balance, and continue to enjoy their winnings. Good for them!

                            I think I would skip the Marina and just buy the Yacht.

                            I actually think they made the smart, right decision to purchase a potential money making marina rather than a money draining yacht. The only way you can make a yacht a money maker is to open up a diving/fishing outfit, but to just own a yacht for personal use is a money drain.  I would much rather own something that has the potential to make me more money and rent my fun (i.e. jet ski, snowmobile, yacht, etc.).  Keep that in mind and they are living proof that that line of thinking is what has allowed them to remain millionaires and avoid showing up on TLC's "Curse of the Lottery".  Most of those who appeared on that show just blew their money on stuff, or in other words, they bought their fun and rented their future.  I would much rather buy my future by investing in potential money making opportunities and rent my fun.

                            The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                              Im not sure how $41.5 million "amounted to $13 million after taxes" ????? But even with 13 million a wise money management strategy would do away with the need for "making money"
