I believe that is the same amount that David Lee Edwards won, so I guess the answer to your question is "Yes.  You can."

Good eye! $27 million was the same amount David Edwards received after taxes. Hi annuity share of the $295 million jackpot which was split 4 ways was over $74 million with the cash value being over $41 million before taxes.

        Kelsey...crongrats to you and your family...enjoy your many years of wealth and prosperity !!!

        While I am sure she has to give up a few more millions to Uncle Sam, she should still have at least 20 million left. Invest 90% wisely take 10% to purchase home and toys....Live comfortably off the 3-5% interest and enjoy your time with your children.

        Another quick pick wins again..I LIIIIIIKE IT  !!!!Thumbs Up

            Good advice.

            Congratulations Kelsey.

            Just beware of people who want to spend your money for you.

            You can lose friends by giving and/or not giving. It's a funny situation.

            Those you give to sometimes forget you gave or want more.

            Those you don't give to will hate you.

            But, I hope you don't have friends or RELATIVES like this.

            Feeling,  PRICELESS!!!Banana

            Come on Jackpot!!!

              Buying toys like Mustangs and houses is good. But her first mature priority would be to hire a financial adviser and to set up a plan and budget. Go a little crazy after the priorities are set. I've read so many stories of winners who won far more then her and due to their immaturity just spent it all.

              Following the trends and patterns means following the money!Banana

                  I Agree! 

                  That's what I'm thinking also Friends and Family it could happen so fast by all the things she's already saying

                    I dont think she'll have any problems folks. She seems to love that little baby and he's gonna be the most spoiled little boy in the world now and now she get to do what every working mom would love to do.....spend all her time raising her kid and not worry about how to pay for college and life in general. I really love to see single mothers win the lottery

                      27 millions and the check says 66 millions. Dupe Alert

                      In x years the money is worth half due to inflation.

                        Drenick1- l posted that " with tongue in cheek".

                        That's him in the background showing affection for their child and that's all good.

                        Be well.

                          They have been dating for 3 years and have a child together so unless their relationship was extremely stressful to begin with I would see no reason she would dump him.

                          Hitch this to my post above..

                            Each one of you disappoints me.  How come this thread hasn't turned very negative yet is beyond me.  Let's talk about Common Law marriage.  Does the boyfriend have those emails and recorded statements to back up his Common Law claim back on their neck of the woods?  Can he claim part of the loot after three years together?  That's a coming!  That year off I'm sure has been getting on somebody's nerves. LOL

                              To my knowledge Michigan doesn't do/recognize common law marriage so this wouldn't apply. Even if they did it's not a community property state so he probably wouldn't get much if any of the winnings.

                              If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
                              If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?
