    Idk, its hard to get 2% interest rate in the US. But even without the interest, if you commit to spend €1M a year after winning the 94, you would need 94 years to be broke. Sad Cheers

    That money's gone fo ever

      I totally agree. Lottery winners need a spending plan. NOT high priced, snivelling, Winny attorneys who are greedy slimy savers with everyone else's money.

            I predicted as much in my two posts onTwo tickets share massive €188 million EuroMillions jackpot. Go read the two posts. NO SUPRISES HERE. Sometimes, its all smoke and mirrors.

              They will be given the standard "Winner Advice" booklet and DVD, which includes advice on security, dealing with charities, etc.

               

              We need a Lottery Post DVD and Booklet version of this!

              There has been great advice on the forums on how to deal with winning big jackpots, when it comes to

              security, lawyers and relatives etc..

               

              I think all U.S. lotteries should have this available for jackpot winners.

                i don't know where this 4 week thing came form in usa

                or even 3 weeks lie

                its just about 2 whole weeks

                ,  all in all 2 weeks for winners for winners of pb/mm to get the money as of winning date, NOT 4 weeks

                also this is form powerball FAQ

                HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET MY MONEY?

                It takes up to two weeks to collect the cash from the stores around the nation. If you go to the lottery to claim your prize after that two weeks, then, in many states, you can generally have the jackpot money (all cash or the first of the annual payments) hit your bank account the next day - maybe the following day if you come to the lottery office very late in the day. Some lotteries must work through the state system and that can delay the payment.

                 

                 

                that's why u have just under 2 weeks to get lawyers/ ever thing planned out and taken care of.

                 

                anyone who waits to 3rd/4th week is losing money , but sense they now worth millions , i guest losing a few bucks don't bug people much at all

                so we have people who wait to  claim on 3/4th week and then everyone starts whole 3/4 week lie to get the money

                its just not true. and it cost people money who wait that long

                 

                now for euro millions,  no clue how long it takes, Ireland Lottery could take 4 weeks, am clueless on that.

                 

                 

                 

                2 weeks folks , not 3 and sure as hell not 4

                  I fell for the title of this article too... lousy "sensationalism".

                  I Agree! Ditto. Completely fell for it. This isn't a story. A story would be if the winner had to wait a year for them to scramble to come up with the funds. For the winner to be able to walk into the office next week and get the money then is still much much faster than our 2 big lottery systems. This is nothing but a bogus attention grabber and it's insulting to the Irish. No No Shame

                         I heard ( not sure if it's true ) if the jackpots "in the hundreds of millions "     example $400 million or more ,it's possible you will get couple in deposits , different times . 

                         Or do you receive ENTIRE amount the next  day after you turn your ticket in ???? 

                           Does anyone know the Real Answer to this question ........
