Two people.   One, whose story ended very badly.  It was actully his mother who won, but he helped her to spend the money.

The other took his money and returned to his country of origin. (He is probably living like a king now.)

Feeling,  PRICELESS!!!Banana

Come on Jackpot!!!

    Couldn't he live like a king in America?

      I know a guy who won super lotto in the 80's. He won a little over 3 million dollars. He still plays everyday and he still has money. He only carries one hundred dollars bills never more tha one thousand dollars and he is a very sweet man.

        I  know  one

         

        I  didnt know  her back when she won it.............but I remember  the draw that nite  back  then ...............because there were two winners and one of them  wasnt  too  far  from  home.........she  won it on a mistake  ticket  (   " never  leave  a   ticket  behind "  )

        I heard about it for years after that

        It  was  a  lot.........even after splitting it with the other winner in the state........I am thinking it was   15  million after the split 

        ( the  Jackpot  was  around  30  million  that  nite I  think  )

         

        It was to be paid out over  20 years  or maybe it was 30  years

         

        I  first  met   some of her kinfolk over the years and  they  became very good  friends  of  mine..........then about two  years   ago I met  her and she became one  of my  friends

        A very sweet  person   with  a  good  heart

        But I never did ask her anything  about  it.............not  even once

          i metsomeone won $15 mill on powerball,  their family relations are strained, they gave too much money away, bought too many houses, and property isnt doing too well,. not like USA bad , but they still have a few mill, and quite a few houses. but think they would  do things different if they had  chance again.

             "...not like USA bad..."

            The dems are always trying to outlaw guns here but they never will, so even though that's bad, at least it's not like Australia bad where you can't even own a gun.

              Everyone here on Lottery Post argues about what to do if you win a jackpot prize, but does anyone actually know someone who actually won a jackpot prize ($1 million or larger) and what happened to them?

              I have read stories of jackpot winners and what happened to them over the years.  I don't know any jackpot winners personally, but I am curious about what happens to everyday people who win such a large prize of $1 million or larger.  Now that I think of it, this brings up an interesting question.  Do you know any winners of any jackpot prize ($1 million or larger) and what happened to them as a result of it?  I don't know any jackpot winners, but I am curious to know if any of you know any and what happened to them.

              Looks Like: You're going to read more Stories about Lottery Winner's: Afterwards: You're still Not Going to Know Any Lottery Winners Personally! LOL

                  after he won he was a rich as-hole

                        Yea, I do. She has won many times. The biggest was $2million on a scratch ticket maybe 10 years ago and then about 2 years ago she won $1million on a scratch ticket. She has won many times on KENO and other LOTTERIES.

                        She has given me advice. Scratch is luck but you just have your own method of picking scratch game to play. She liked to play 3 and 4 number on KENO.

                        Me I read people's theories. Books I have are Gail Howard's Books(5), Winning Lotto/Lottery, Easy Dollars, Learn How To Increase Your Chances Of Winning The Lottery, I have bought other books.

                        I have started getting into eBooks and have bought Jimmy The Swede's Handbooks (4).

                        I use lottery software like, Lottery 2000, WinEasy, LotWin, Lottery Tracker, Lotto Master and others.

                        Everyone always says their way is best but like College, I like to study which makes me more informed and gives me more feel for the numbers. Nothing is guarenteed but odds can be increased in your favor.

                            I believe, when he left the US his country's currency was approximately somewhere between 5 or 10 to our 1. 

                            He would have been considered, extremely wealthy.
