It's going to be spent wisely for school. :)  I don't think they take anything out over $5000.  Last time I won $1000 a few years ago when I did my taxes I didn't owe anything since I was a full time student.  I'm pretty sure I won't owe next sinceI'll be  just a full-time student all this year and my income is virtually nothing.

      Awesome win Risky, especially on a $5 ticket! Another example where it only takes buying 1 ticket to win something substantial.

      $5k is the second tier prize with only the $500,000 prize above it. That's 1 in 30,000 or 1 $5K ticket for every 100 books of tickets...

            Went to the lottery office today and you'd think it was the DMV.  All these people sitting there looking mad even though they are there because they won over $600 dollars.

                ...and money is not the answer to these people's problems.

                  One guy raised hell because apparently instead of getting the a check for a $1000 he got a paper saying it was taken to pay for some owed debt.

                      He must not be too bright. When I had my $1,000 winner I looked into EVERY possibility of it being taken (I just hadn't filed federal taxes at the time yet, but it is a state agency and only collects against state owed debt) and it says right on the claim form which debts they check in the system. Oh well, at least he's a grand less in debt. And still as dumb.

                        Congrats Risky!  That was an awesome win.  Also, glad to hear it is going to a good cause.  Good luck in school.

                        On a side note, the person who lost their $1,000 probably had unpaid child support, alimony or income taxes.  The kicker for him is that the FL lottery will still issue him a W-2G for the $1,000 and he will owe taxes on the winnings even though he never "received" them.
