I'm very happy for the young man. He came forward in a hurry, most folks wait awhile.

I have to laugh though because many of the winners of big jackpots like this young man  seem to be spur of the moment buyers.  Maybe I'll start waiting till Im down to my last buck to buy my tickets.

    The nasty comments about this young winner have been removed.  If anyone has a desire to say something nasty, or wants to spread or create rumours, then do it someplace else.  And hope you never win, because paybacks are ... well, you know what they are.

      "his co-workers vouch for him, say he's a good guy, etc."

      Like the one who reminded him publicly that he now owes her 2 million? Yeah, I'm sure going to put all my faith in those people in forming an opinion about the guy.

      We shall see, but I sure didn't take her comment to mean that "he now owes her 2 million." Bash

        Congrats to this young man.  However, I'm always suspicious when the clerks of the store win but this one sounds legit.

        lol now thats funny.  being a store clerk has nothing to do with him winning.  trust me i know.  i've worked at stores that sale lottery tickets.  his chances of winning is/was no greater than anyone who doesnt work as a store clerk.    now if that was the case trust me i'd have a few jackpot wins under my belt already.

        on another note i do think he came forward way to fast.  but on the other hand a report i read said the income tax is only going to be 6million.  i think it would be very hard to screw up 118 million dollars.

          Why is it a lot of times when people with a colored background win something, people have to focus on the not so nice points in their lives?

          The link above contains a story about the winner. That story points out that he has xx amount of kids from xx amount of wives. I'll bet they

          couldn't wait to report that this guy had $28.xx in his bank account yet played lottery tickets here and there. As far as his front teeth go, well,

          isn't it more important he HAD A JOB??

          I'm happy to see he won it. As long as he tried to do his best to support what he has and is not a rapist, murderer or child molester/abuser then let

          him have it, more power to him. Even if he blows it, it is his and that's all that matters.

                Thanks Todd for shutting it down from the negativity.  It is ironic, that within this blogging community, we often talk about the negativity that a Jackpot winner will receive from family, friends, co-workers and neighbors.  Just jealous, envious and negative folks.  It is apparent, that some are in our midst and frequent this site.

                But to all those who have won, regardless of their outcomes with their jackots, you have the experience that millions the world over would love to have. To those of us who have yet to hit that big jackpot, keep swinging for the fences and when your boat comes in, be sure that you take all of the years of wisdom shared within the archiueves of Lottery Post and walk accordingly.

                  Read an updated story on the winner (wouldn't let me post it here); seems like a great guy.

                   

                  Hope he gets the right (honest) advisors. I do wish he had remained anonymous; I think all this would be easier for him (or anyone else) to deal with, but maybe you don't have that option in Missouri.

                    Actually it isn't hard at all...look at celebs who go broke. All it takes is a couple of careless moves and BAM! broke.

                    Lets hope He uses common sense and does what he truly desires with HIS money. Really this is all about Him and what will make Him happy...trying to please other people is impossible...please yourself, love your self and others will see it. Smiley

                        To help with calculations for when you soon win your multi-state, multi-million dollar jackpot, I thought I would notify you about the error you took away from the report.  You wrote: "But on the other hand a report i read said the income tax is only going to be 6 million."  NO, NO, NO ... it will be apx. $48.54 million total fed and state income tax paid (figure apx. 34.9% ALWAYS for Federal tax, AND additionally, Missouri charges 4% as a state tax= 38.9%).  I wasn't sure if anyone else would mention this to you.  Peace.

                         

                        ALSO, congratulations Mr. Shaw on your big lottery jackpot win!!! Be sure to quickly hire a tax attorney for strategies, estate planning, monthly annuity withdrawal trusts, limited family partnership, small business entrepreneur start-up, liabilities, gap insurance, housing, while you are waiting the 2-4 weeks for the monies from all the states to be collected, combined, and electronically transferred into your checking account!
