I hate to say it, but he's already making mistakes that winners who lost their entire fortunes have made.  Apparently, he hasn't gotten a financial planner yet & is already shelling out big money to pay the bills of those around him.  I hope I'm wrong & he's able to hold onto his money, but we've seen this time & time again; the name Jack Whittaker comes to mind...

I Agree!

    2%?  I wish!  More like 0.1%! As for FDIC insurance, you can purchase more if you want to. With a deposit that large, the bank might even purchase it for you.

    yeah i put %2 as a hopefull amount, but the point is that in a  " safe"  savings plan the return is next to nothing. he should plan on that being his income.

    2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

    keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318

      Seriously though, he should have put a little more thought into doing something like saying he'll pay the rent for the whole block.

      I'm sure many people here can think of numerous examples of the old adage "no good deed goes unpunsihed."

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

      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.

        You could be wrong. Jack handed out $1000+ per week for dope habits. I dont think Pedro will do that.

            I'm sure some laddered bonds would do just fine.

                  I'm with the 2% here that have faith in humanity and a man who knows all too well the value of a dollar. He will do alright. When you have 153 MILLION, handing out 20-30k is a nickel to him. No harm no foul. And until ANy of you can seriously say you have the right to cast stones I highly advise handing out well wishes. The only statistic I'll agree with is this man has 100% good intentions and good will to aide others. So what if he isn't doing it YOUR way...I'm discouraged that those who DON"T have have the audacity to tell ANOTHER adult how to 'save" or "spend" his money. It is His and I wish him nothing but the best in living out his dreams.

                              Thanks for the vid. Lets hope they at least have a house and a few toys left over when they go broke.
