You are at this point in your life. You hope to win the big one, one of these days. $50 M, $200 M, you name it.

We all hope to one day.

Here is a deal for you. Would you take $1 M today to give up on your dream of winning a huge jackpot someday?

    One day a lion was walking through the woods when he spotted a rabbit sleeping under a bush.

    The lion was about to eat the rabbit when he saw a deer run by.

    So he left the rabbit and chased the deer, but the rabbit, awakened by the noise, ran away.

    The lion chased the deer for a long time, but he couldn't catch it so he returned to the bush to get the rabbit. When he arrived there he found that the rabbit had gone too.

    "It serves me right," he said, "for giving up the food I had in hope of getting something better."

    MORAL: People often try to get something better, but in their haste they loose the things they already have. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Don't Be Greedy: Take the $1,000,000.

    A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

        Going for the dream. That's what life is about. After spending the 1M, we'll be still dreaming and knowing we'll never get it because we already made the deal. This will be the start of our depression.

        Food vs dreams are different.

        With all the basics covered, we go for the impossible.

          I would take the $1 Million deal.  It would bring me much joy to see $1 M in my saving accounts in 10 banks($100,000 each).  Travel twice a year.  Eat out at a fine resturant once a week.  Quit my second job.  Spend more time with family.  Workout in the gym more often.  $1 Million would be perfect.

            One million can be vested. THereby creating the income necessary to sustain. Not greedy. Practical and realistic.

            So what if I would be banned by some higher force to never win a higher jackpot. Wouldnt mean I cant win 500k or 250k in some drawings later on .

            Technically though, one million would be doable.

                now if u ask would you spend $1 on a chance to win $1 mill, or $1 on a chance , 15 times harder odds, to win $15 mill.

                I bet a lot would take the $15 mill


                personally id buy 2 tickets 1` in each lol


                but back to the choice, I picked 1 mill, if i won it id be one happy monkeyman. a lot of screeching and dancing about waving of arms etc.

                no way would i blow it, for a go at 15x, sure ill blow a buck for 15x, but not 1 mill the cost of the entry is too high.

                        A lot of people think the best way to win at least part of a lottery jackpot without spending any money is to wait for someone they know to win one and then sue them.  That doesn't work unless you are their spouse or lover.

                          I think it dosent really matter how much you win if its above 500K, beacuse it will change your life and that maybe you will get a streak of winning!
