I posted a similar thread about a couple of months ago but it was moved to a subforum where nobody visits. Sorry.
NY has the set-for-life lottery game. And I think California used to have similar kind of game, paying the winner 1000 bucks a week. (MEH) But getting 5000 bucks a week, like in that NY game, is very attractive. I bet millions of people (who will never win anything) will be happy to settle with set-for-life game.
If there's such kind of game in California and winners are guaranteed for every week, people will flock to the vendors. A lot of people will settle with a steady flow of income rather than one massive amount of jackpot.

If win a jackpot, I would prefer it would come in on a weekly basis. I
think it would be a little more easier to handle.

Write to your lotto headquarters and get your friends, family, pet to write too that you would like win-for-life type of game.

I would too. that's why i would pick an annuity rather than a lump sum. I'm not sure what I would do with millions of dollars all at once. I've never had thousands of dollars all at once LOL

Yeah you would not have to worry about investing and losing your money all the time. But checks are paid yearly anyway not weekly, and that is the amount before taxes. I would even settle for $1,000 a week! That is plenty for my lifestyle, and I could always make more part-time if I wanted. I have lived on $500 a month before.

It would be nice to have $5000 a week for life. Yes, it would be easier for me to save and handle $5000 a week. But if I had the choice of the weekly income or the lump sum, I would choose the lump sum payment.
