I may be wrong and maybe there is a shortcut for Mr. Holland, but the article said he is from Fayetteville NC, that is about at least 3 hour drive to Martinsville.  Maybe if he do make the trip daily he played after work.  I live about 45 minutes from Martinsville, and Fayetteville is a 3hr drive for me.  So hopefully it was after hours from Post Office.  Congrats to Mr.Holland

    If he had won: $120K or $130K or $150K if he could find a bank that will give him: 4% if he could find it...he places it in the bank and the: $5,200 to $6,500 which amounts to like: $500 or $480 add $100 to those: $500 and it could be a monthly house Mortgage payment multiplied x 30 years is a: $216,000 home...That way he dont have to worry about paying a house and worries more about been a good father, making sure his kids get into a good college, if his kids are young make sure they do the homework and have them straight in highschools or middle school...Be able to buy his kid: 3 cars when they get older, etc..And not have to stress at work..

    I know what ruins it is the taxes...i just thought i say something since this story is interesting..If only you was living in another country where they dont take: 50% in taxes...and i apologize but it is this that makes the USA NOT be the greatest country in the world...for crying out loud tax oil in its place or airlines...Out of those: $100,000 he is going to stay with: $50,000 and if he was to placed it in the bank 50% of the income from the interest will be taken as taxes...Jee got to be cruel....

    i dont even feel like telling him congratulations i dont see no: ¨HAPPINESS¨ or what to congratulate about...

    Now had he placed that in the bank and nobody taxed him and he be able to make a: $600 a month home mortgage payment x 30 years and get a: $216,000 home...And be able to put his kid in nice colleges and he be able to be a nice father then yes i would had said congratulations to that....

      and to be technical it could had taken the: $500 a month and get a: 3 year car note for a 2008 Chrysler300 for $20,000....

      and still have more money to buy more cars...

        Don't judge us by our current government Pumpi, we're still the greatest country in the world. We've just been lax for so many years letting the government pick our pockets that we've come to expect it and accept it as a way of life. A lot of us are working to change that.

          I've always suspected the lottery can "switch off" a number with too many plays to avoid paying out sums like this.

            On Tuesday I had the same feeling this guy had with a number of my own. I was at a store filling out a form, and noticed the last person had written the same number I was about to write: birth day and year. The only thing different was the month. I got the chills, and immediately put $5 str8 on it. I was so sure it would fall I spent the rest of the day planning how I'd go collect, and what I'd spend the 25K on.

            Needless to say I'm still sucking wind.

                  Yea he might not be real happy about paying the taxes especially since he's from north Carolina and he played in VA so he will owe tax in both states. However 100,000 before taxes for 20 bucks is about the only investment one could make that would give this amount of return of money.

                  No other investment for 20 buck scan give this amount of return for the game he played.

                  He beat the odds congrats to him.

                  As much as i hate taxes I'll take 50 grand for 20 bucks any day.

                    Better investment is paying $1 and ending up with $12+ Million.

                    If someone can beat those odds...wow.

                    It would be a great story to get 1 MM ticket and win $200 Million lol.

                      Some states have reciprocal agreements. You have to file paperwork in both states, but your total tax bill will be roughly equal to the higher state's rate.

                      If these two states don't have such an agreement, then yeah he'd have to pay two state income taxes.

                      I'd still take it, though. Big Grin

                          Something for my LP California Brothers and Sisters.  Now I don't pretend to be a psychic or predictor or anything like that  but I notice something in pick 4 that those of you who know how to analyze numbers might want to look at.  CA pick four seems to "prefer"  the doubles pattern with two single numbers attached more than others.  like  3626 or 2969  or 7276  etc.

                          I don't really play daily 4 but I check it because I had  a lucky dream set that came up once i decided to stop playing it.  I'll never forget it- it was 8335 (same concept)  hitting on September 3 2009.  It was never a regular number but since I dreamed it, i played it for months (started in april) I finally gave up and it hit.  Ever since  then Ive been checking patterns but never playing.

                          Go check it out.  Maybe some of you can do something with it.  Good luck to ya!
