    Congrats to him! The money should last him a long time with the annual payments.

            ^The majority of the people who play are middle-aged or elderly. However, I have plenty of co-workers aged 18-28 who play regularly;and have seen people my age play when I stop at the gas station. I've also seen quite a few young winners in the past year in scratch off games and state lotteries. We like money as much as anyone else, lol.

                      I agree! Maybe he could win again within the next 20 and just perpetuate the collect. Luck to you all!
