Hi there fellow lottery hopefuls!  Just in case I would win, I need advice.  We all wish for that big lump sum check for $50 million, but what actually does one do with it when they get it?  I mean, you would have to deposit it in a bank and wait until it clears in order to cash it, and then what do you do with all of that money in the account?  You cannot leave it in a bank that only insures you for a hundred thousand dollars (a big crock at that), so what does one do?  I thought of swiss accounts, but is that a good choice and how do they work?  I have never had to worry (not yet) about this problem since the most I have ever won was about $100.  But, one needs to prepare, so give me your suggestions!

    Give me a million, and I'll tell you exactly where to place it. I'll do it for free.....Open an American Express Card and put the all of the money in there.

    This way you don't have to worry about spreading it all over the place.

      I wanna know if you get to keep that big cardboard check. It would look cool on my newly built living room wall in that newly built house in Hawaii.  No hurricanes. No forest fire. Great weather for the elderly!

      Cheers

      I only trust myself - and that's a questionable choice

        I've always wondered the same thing Chewie. Do they let you keep the cardboard check? Anyone know?

          Check the Annuity Box and you won't have to worry about it.
