    The more younger the player, and the already responsible and intelligent, will maximize it to their fullest potential. Not all young people are stupid, or foolish. Most maybe, but not all. I would have no problem spending not even 5% of my jackpot and being happy.

    this is NOT always true!!

    also i would have no problem spending not even 2 percent of my jackpot and being happy.......

    I did not say it was always true, I think you missed my point, reread. I was implying that so as long as the competency is intact, age is irrelevant. Most of the time it takes many years for the average person to obtain enough experience, and wisdom in order to make the right decisions in life, but not everyone is born equal on that plateau.

    There are exceptions to every rule, I was not insinuating that all youth has these attributes intact, they don't. I was simply stating that those who will know what to do, those who did their homework and do not take short cuts in life.

      I was thinking more along the lines of the younger a person was the more likely they are to think that something like a "hot car" would be a must for someone who suddenly came into a lot of $$$$$$. They'd be less likely to be like the late Sam Walton (Wal-Mart founver) who, while worth many millions, drove around in the same 9 year old pick-up truck.

      Yes I assumed that, just wanted to throw out another viewpoint.

        My Dad played Minnesota Gopher 5 religiously since its inception.  When it first came out, he was still working and thought it would help him and my Mom in retirement.  He later retired and still played religiously.  He soon noticed that they did not need to win the lottery to be doing ok in retirement.

        And then ............... soon after this revelation .................... he ends up winning a Gopher 5 jackpot.


        Moral of the story:  The more that you play to win, the more that you will fail.  Start playing for the fun of it and you'll begin winning.


        Good Luck,


        That's cool!  Reminds me of a testimonial I read from the Abundance Course site.  The person was taught to release his desire maybe to win the lottery and well, he said he became a millionaire overnight.

        It's when you stop chasing after it that it'll come to you.
