    Looks more like a $400 winner to me

    I cashed in the $100 and bought this one.

        The $1000 dollar winner came from a Food Lion machine. The others came from convinence stores. I do my best out of the machines it seems but it may just be coincidence. I mix it up best I can so I can work different rolls.

          Can someone Explain Why these 2 Players win the same amount in the top Prize but the Lump  sum is Diffrent ? 

          1) CAMPBELLTON WOMAN WINS $3 MILLION TOP PRIZE IN GOLD RUSH TRIPLER SCRATCH-OFF GAME

          Spencer chose the one-time, lump-sum payment option for her winnings, in the amount of $1,950,000

           

          2) OKEECHOBEE WOMAN WINS $3,000,000 FLAMINGO FORTUNE TOP PRIZE

          Palmer chose the one-time, lump-sum payment option for her winnings, in the amount of $2,493,752.05.

          What?  What?  What?

          The difference is $543,752.05 - Pretty signficant 

          This information was taken from the Florida lottery Website. 

          The only Logical Explanation is that the Woman that claimed the $1.9 Mil owed money to somekind of Government  Entity, be it Taxes, Student Loan, Welfare, etc...  or an error from the Florida Lottery. 

           

           

           

          Keep moving Forward.

            Lucki, I'm not a financial guy at all, but I do know that some games' payout amount is based on the stock market, some kind of index, etc... That is why we see that some people take different amounts in the lump sum. I don't know how it is calculated, but it is tied to the market and if it's a strong day--your payout is increased. However, it does seem that the 1.95 mil from GRT is a set amount. Again, I'm no expert but that is my understanding. Perhaps some games have a differently structured payout. Someone will have a more concise answer, I'm sure.

              I might be wrong but I tought it had to do with your taxes (how many dependents and what bracket your in).

                The rules for these games calculate the cash value differently.

                Gold Rush Tripler's top prize cash value is a fixed $1,950,000.

                Flamingo Fortune's top prize cash value is variable based on this rule:
                "A winner of a (Flamingo Fortune) $3,000,000 prize shall receive a cash payment of the amount of cash required to purchase U.S. Government Securities that would fund $3,000,000 paid over a twenty year period, less applicable federal withholding taxes. This figure will be determined during the week following the date on which the $3,000,000 prize is claimed by obtaining quotes from at least two investment sources. The quote costing the least to fund the twenty year payment stream will be the amount of the Cash Option prize."

                All $3,000,000 prizes are not created equal...

                  Wow, sweet. Imagine how that week must feel!!!  Once you claim your prize, you still don't know for a week how much you're actually taking! Ha!

                      Thanks Duckman. Wow I did not know that. Boy talk about reading the fine print. So for the GRT since its a fixed Cash value prize the check is given without waiting, In Prizes Structed like Flamingo Fortune - 1 week has to go buy before the Check is Printed. Hope they have some comfortable Hotels by the lotttery headquarter in Tallahassee. LOL 

                      Keep moving Forward.

                            Awesome Lucki!  #17 is a odd number for a nice hit. Numbers in the teens typically are always duds for me. Maybe the number sequence really means nothing. i typically win at the beg or ends of rolls.
