        - drug addict

        - complete lack of knowledge of finance, leaving everything up to financial advisers

        - afraid of too large a jackpot:

        If you are afraid of money, then you'll undoubtedly find ways to part company with it.

              Not having a plan in place to make your money last the rest of your lifetime.  I remember watching The Lottery Changed My Life when David Lee Edwards was on it.  My wife and I commented on how we did not think his money would last.  Then hearing an update on him.  It was sad.  I always hope that someone that has had some troubles in their life can turn it around when given that golden opportunity.

                All posts so far are spot on. 

                I think the biggest indicator is starting off telling what you will buy or spend lottery winnings on first. The first thing out lottery winners mouth sets the path he/she will follow, often to great detriment.

                Why is that? Because when the spending commences without a plan, and is further compounded by helping out relatives and friends who perhaps never called to say hi before your big win, it is easy to lose sight of one outspending any earned interest and chip away at the principle. Failing to plan is a plan to fail.

                Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                            Anybody ever get th idea that sometimes the Lottery Fairy lets some people win jackpots who she knows won't be able to handle it and does it to entertain herself?

                            Scared

                            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                            Lep

                            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                              Very true!  People relate better to lists and examples of "Do this" and "DON"T do this."
