yes it is, he's young enough to make mistake and learn from it by taking it annually...Congrats to the lucky young fella
Yep, plus it should help discourage the moochers who'd have dollar signs in their eyes if he had $600K or so after taxes.

I think he should give all the money to the homeless
Why don't you give all your paychecks to the homeless? (If you even have a job).
Would YOU give all your money to the homeless if you won a million dollars?
Didn't think so.

By him taking the annual payments it's a great way for him to budget... It also forces him to manage money, so he doesn't make impulsive mistakes. Good for him.

I'll be honest, I'm surprised the "cash is king" proponents haven't come in to harangue Mr. McNulty for not taking the lump sum. I guess we can agree, then, that there are some scenarios where the annuity is the right choice; winning when you're really young is one of those instances.

It feels great to win, but I just do not like instant scratch off games. Spending $20 for a scratch off game is not my thing.

NOT a very smart move. He'll receive maybe two payments before the communists come and donate all his money to the revolution. Dangerous times, Ryan, very dangerous.

Ryan McNulty of Marshfield, Massachusetts, turned 21 and celebrated a day later by claiming a $1 million prize in the state lottery's "Billion Dollar Bonanza" instant game.
McNulty chose to collect in annual payments of $50,000 (before taxes) over 20 years. He told lottery officials he will use the money to buy a new car and pay some bills.
His lucky ticket was purchased at Green Harbor General Store, 40 Marginal Street in the Green Harbor section of Marshfield. The store will receive a $10,000 bonus on the sale of the $20 ticket.
The odds of winning a $1 million in the game are estimated at one in 436,000.
There are three (3) $10 million prizes and forty-eight (48) $1 million prizes remaining in the Billion Dollar Bonanza game.

Congratulations and Happy Birthday Mr. McNulty. Good choice on choosing the annuity. Now run out and go get yourself, a couple of nice shirts and ties, and remember not to wear them with sweatpants.

I'm fairly sure at the time this game started (2008) There wasn't a lump sum option on grand prize wins (Outside MM or PB) That would change very soon. But since the game didn't have the option in it's rules, he automatically gets the 20-year payoff. Good for him nonetheless

Darn. Every single year around my birthday the jackpots are HUGE...every single year. Always hoping for a birthday miracle like this one but nada...yet : ))
Congrats to you man and way to go with the annuity choice. Best decision ever!!!
