    Oh no, in this case, he should have kept each as the annuity option!!!  He became disposable vacation leaning, apparently.

    I Agree!

        I Agree!    Maybe one annuity and the other cash option would have been best.  WTG on your win!!!

            Congrats! If it was me I would have taken one ticket with the lump sum and the other ticket as annual payments...nothing like having a guaranteed income stream for the rest of your life. Not enough to retire on but still a nice addition  to your income.

            Dance

            Great idea!! Its not often that you can do both! Get a bunch of cash and an annuity!

              @Get Paid

               

              The $7,000 per week is a 5 + lucky ball hit. He just hit the 5 of 5 without the lucky ball for the second tier prize of $25K per year. Good for him hitting the second prize twice in the same drawing. Unless they change the game matrix back to something more closely resembling the old matrix there will never be another grand prize winner with these stupid odds. You would have a better chance getting your hand crushed by a lobster claw, and mauled by an angry moose on the same day up here than winning the L4L.

                wow talk about luckily. its one thing to win a lottery prize for a lifetime,its another thing to win two of them!

                I wonder what are the odds of that.Confused

                I am gonna focus on the small lotterys for now...
