thars been many countless and pointless debates about lump sum vs taking the given annuity

its also been disgused to virtual death, one could always buy a better annuity then the ones currently offered

 

of all the stories of failure we've seen not to mention the albeit rare story of those that took thar winning and proven themselves to be that much better at handling thar money

few have taken the lessons taught to heart

and with the comming presidential election comming up in a bit over 6 months ,thar will be no doubt more to pay in taxes in the comming years

    I'll take a +/- $135,000,000 after-tax bump in my bank account!

    Not too bad.

    It would be about a 118 mil bump for me.

      I won $3 last night on Lotto, which I've put into an additional Powerball ticket.

      This morning I went to my normal place to cash it and get tickets, but their machine was down, so I went to another place and their's was working. I got my winning Lotto at a place I don't normally buy them(vending machine in a supermarket), so who knows what will happen this time?

          Hello Lottery Posters,

          It's time again for another round of (Price is Right) Powerball results.

          Take a guess at final results for next drawing of annuity prize (won or rollover) without going over and see who gets closest.

          Technut $360M

          Savagegoose $359M

          golfer1960 $352M

          ArizonaDream $40M

           ** Winner for Sat April 30th Round is $348M = ArizonaDream with $40M or ($1 bid). congrats ArizonaDream.**

          Round II

          Technut $385M

            I Agree! Finally, someone who's using their noggin. As you say, this topic has been discussed almost to death and there is no point in rehashing pros and cons, and so I won't. 

            But what I can't grasp is why anyone actually feels the money would be safer from scammers in annuity form. It's almost as if they think that money not yet disbursed is in some kind of magical vault where liens, suits, scams and indebtedness don't apply. The tragedy and the irony is that those are the people who usually end up selling off their future annuity payments and filing for bankruptcy simply because they don't understand how things work.

            I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

            The odds are about the same.

              I understand the argument for the lump sum but I'd choose ANNUITY all the way!  $3,928,425 + per year (first payment) after taxes in Washington state.  That's enough for living large while getting the financial education, saving you the stress and worry of being taken to the cleaners by some smart Alec lawyer or investor, if the lump sum is chosen.  A price has to be paid for security.  The heirs can claim whatever is left to claim after I die.  4 million dallas is more than enough to live a good life. </ here I wake up lol>

              Valid statement about being taken to the cleaners by a smart alec lawyer or investor.....that is a very real possibility and a fear of mine.

                            Mr./Ms. Bluedog101,

                            Please help me understand. Several of you, here, are hoping for an even higher jackpot.
                            I just wish someone would win it NOW (meaning: on the next draw). 
                            Some are even hoping for the big $Billy to roll around again.

                            What's the purpose of hoping for an even larger jackpot?

                            I need my one mil. now, and I'll be set. I'll even stop coming here.

                            Please, someone just win it, this Wednesday.
                            Be careful when choosing your numbers if you are a new player, and you use the slips.
                            Think hard about the numbers you plan to play. I seem to be getting visions about the
                            number 3 popping up on Wednesday, like 3 or 13 or 30 throughout the winning ticket.

                            Mr. Groppo

                            • Don't chase the numbers you play.
                            • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
                            • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.
                                      (so far, though, I've yet to win any significant lotto prize)
