    Being a millionaire and living in a new city will mean you have new friends. Most likely you will meet them in yacht clubs, country clubs, etc.  Money to them will be nothing new. Best answer would be to say you invest. But one thing I would like to do when I win is quit my job, once my financial situation is stablized, I would work part time in the mall, maybe 2 or 3 days a week, 4-5hrs a day and I will drive the train around in the mall for the kids. 

    If you don't know what I am talking about, some malls have a kiddie train about 4 cars long, its not on tracks. Thats what I will say what I do. lol.

    I plan to tell people I spend my days riding the kiddie train at the mall.

        I'd say "I watch my investments" which would be true.

              So let's say you win the Powerball Jackpot tonight.  Life is exciting, you claim your prize, spend the next couple months getting your finances together. 


              It's 4 years later you've moved to a new city.  You have millions, no one knows you won.

              What do you tell people you do for a living when they ask?  What do you tell friends when they ask what you do?

              To say none of your business invites suspicion.  Do you say you own a business, invested well?  Inherted money?

              I own a chain of Los Pollos Hermanos fried chicken restuarants.

              If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
              If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

              2017: 0% (0 tickets)
              P&L % = Total Win($)/Total Wager($) - 1

                I'd pull a "Fletch" on them, telling everyone something different. I might tell one I sold shares in a mule train, tell someone really nosey - and didn't like them or cared what they thought of me - that I bilked old ladies out of their pensions, others that I directed porn videos or that I synthesized elbow grease. I might tell them I was a professional slacker, saying in my best Blanche DuBois voice "I have always depended on the kindness of strangers."

                    Tell them you're in Private Equity.

                    "Oh really?" they say. "What kind?"

                    You say, "The kind of Equity that's Private, and none of your beeswax!" No No

                        I  would  tell  them  I  stay  busy  at  a   job 

                         

                        And   when   they   ask  for  the  second  time  what  that  job   is  ???

                         

                        I  would  tell  them that I stay busy  " minding my own business "  and that they ought to try it sometime

                         

                        Just  like I  have  told  some  others  in  life  the  same  thing   ( even before I have won the lottery )

                         

                        Nosy  people  get  under my  skin  pretty  quick  (  I  have  had  a  lifetime  of  them ) and  dont have much patience with them anymore

                         

                        Some  people  are  so  nosy ,   that  their  butt  hurts   Smile

                         

                        I  love  the  old  song   " Mind  your  own  business  ,  and  you  wont   be  mindin '  mine "   Thumbs Up

                            Tell them you made Mainz invetments, just like the Obamas who are getting about $72,000 a month from them, or so the story goes.

                            Look up Mainz investments and see what you find.

                            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.
