dphillips,

Coin Toss, even if those people were working (collecting a salary) and putting the money in the bank (and collecting interest), they should not be broke, coming back, and asking for more. 

The thiniking is, "Hey you won millions, give me another one" (million). Since the million given to these people was a gift completely out of "nowhere" and they didn't have to do anything for it that probably made it easier to blow it all.

I guess we could say peole who are given a gift like that and especialy such an amount aren't thinking about banks or interest.

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

Lep

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

    She should have divorced him, and she should have played the lottery in a state that allows anonymity.  After the lawyers, the estranged husband, greedy family members, and greedy relatives get a piece of the pie, she will wish that she never bought that ticket.

    Smart lottery winners form trust to claim their winnings.  They send an attorney to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize in trust, so that ONLY the name of the trust is revealed.  And they tell NO ONE, especially relatives.

    If you ever win a lottery and you are single, the only person you should ever marry is someone who was truly in love with you BEFORE you won the jackpot!

      Woman wins.

      Get a D-I-V-O-R-S-E and Full custody of the kids.  Split the winnings 50/50, Make the hubby set up

      a trust for the kids out of his half, at least 50%.  Make the hubby pay Child support based on his

      new winfall.  Get as much maintence as you can also based on his new winfall.  Put all your money

      in something that will provide a nice return.  Live off his half until it is gone and then then run off

      with his worst enemy and live happly ever after.  Don't forget to run over his mailbox and drop his

      hound Dog off at the animal shelter to be put down and poision his favorite fishing hole your way

      out of town.

       

      Man wins

      Give her half, put some up for the kids, buy a good used pickup and some new fishing lures.  Let old

      Joe ride up front on the way to the fishing hole.

        Would you drive to another state that allows anonymity just to play the lotto with absolutely no guarantee you're going to win? Get real.

        Worst case scenario, the court orders her to give half the money to her estranged husband. She'll still have around 40 or 30 million after taxes and lawyers fees. All she has to do next is say, "no" to any loser who begs her for money. Sure beats driving to work in freezing cold northern Idaho and then spending 8 mind numbing hours a day as a customer service rep at the bank.

              This should be a lesson to all of the lazy people that for whatever reason, never fill out divorce papers.  They leave each other, but neither one files for divorce or a legal separation. 

              I work for a county office and believe me, there are a lot of married people around living as though they are single.  In their minds they are single, but legally they are not. 

              I've heard excuses such as it costs too much and "they" should pay for it, not me OR I just forgot all about it. 

              Just because you haven't lived together for years, does not make you automatically divorced.  Geez people....file the darn papers or suffer the consequences!

                    I am so happy for this woman.  Working in customer service is NO FUN....I just hope everything turns out okay for her and the kids.  I'd hate for her to become one of the lottery horror stories.  I know that's what everyone is thinking...but maybe she will fool everyone.  Maybe.....

                      Mr. Lahti is happy he won't have to pay child support? WHAT A LOSER!!!!!!

                      I hope he doesn't get a dime , and still has to pay child support.

                      If she does have to give him some money I hope she sues for child support in the same amount.

                      THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO REASON TO BEAT UP A WOMAN,

                      ON A PERSONAL NOTE, I HOPE HE GOES TO JAIL AND GETS A TASTE OF HIS OWN MEDICINE.

                      I agree with you 100% Sully.

                      This arsehole creep does not deserve a dime of the young lady's winnings.

                        He will get some of the money, it would be good if they could reach an agreement without going to court about it.  Since they are not divorced or legally seperated he should recieve some sort of payment as alimony.  I'm not happy about that but we can't have two sets of rules.

                        Would someone explain to me how do people who are not listed on her facebook page read her messages?

                        They can't see her inbox messages, they can only see her wall messages.  And because she don't have her FB wall page or message box set to private, anyone can send her a private message.  Once she sets those to only friends, then she won't get any messages from strangers.

                              Oh boo hoo, boo hoo, "It's always NY", "I'm getting tired of funding NY".

                              From the Powerball website winners page:

                              2010 17 Jackpots hit, 1 in NY

                              2009  13 Jackpots, none in NY

                              2008  11 Jackpots, none in NY
