Powerball jackpot money is not available until 2 weeks after the draw. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET MY MONEY?

1. Pay federal and state jackpot tax obligations in full . . avoid tax shelter schemes.

2. Invest balance for dividend income, keeping quarterly tax obligations current.

    I would be cool and collected, but I imagine that I would be in shock, checking and rechecking my ticket.  I would probably go to the lottery office within days.  Then I would get a financial advisor or lawyer to put me on the right track. The plan would be to split the money 3 ways among me and my immediate family and I would want to give about 60,000 to select co-workers....but how would I do that anonymously?

      I will dissapear for about two months untill the funds are in my account........then I will return with one word:

       

      Checkmate

       That will be followed by one word:

       

      Gameover

       

      That will be followed by my final communication:

       Chaos55  VS.  Megamillions......."In the end there can be only one!"
