I think most of the people on this forum would use their jackpot wisely, do you agree?
I believe overall a larger percentage of LP forum members would make wiser financial decisions WHEN compared to the general public but that is where the advantage ends. It seems many LP members lack any financial background and yet feel more than capable of handling a large windfall.
Without seeking any kind of legal and financial advice, I think only 15-20% of forum members would make it fine on their own.

Do you play in a lottery pool? If so, how many people are in your pool? How do you handle signups/payments/sending copies of tickets? Do you have a legal agreement in place? Do you have a minimum amount for a jackpot before your pool will play? If so, how much?

Weed is the problem? Really?
Alcohol is legal, and it kills more people every year (about 50,000) than ALL the drugs combined. I haven't heard of ONE person dying from smoking weed.
This illogical propaganda being taught throughout the decades is nothing more than Ignorance and Hypocrisy at it's best.

Lotto's eclipse and the rise of video slots fits in with a larger trend of gamblers gravitating toward bigger jackpots and faster games, said John Warren Kindt, professor emeritus of business and legal policy at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
What is the opinion of this expert on how the moral of the people were literally stepped on, and the consequence in decreased sales, when they increased the balls from 44 to 59?

What's the worst case scenario to winning the lottery?
Winning for worst case might depend on the dollar amount. Something under 15 million should be pretty easy with guidance from a solid financial adviser atty and keeping to yourself.
Winning 20 - hundreds of millions ??? Now you may have a bit of challenge. Make sure you had the absolute best legal attorneys and tax/investment team.
A Billion ?? wellllllll......I may have to hire a swat team before/after collecting

Lottery winner's lifetime of money gone in weeks
That's their standard rate - 4.9% for cashiers checks of more than $5000. Places like that must expect that their customers are on the wrong section of the bell curve, but even if they knew he was mentally incompetent they probably weren't breaking the law against exploiting the disabled since they treated him the same way they would have treated any other customer.
The basic business model is perfectly legal, but mostly dependent on people who are morons, mentally incompetent, or suffering f ...
