          Pay off some bills, but more are sure to follow.

            I am a stay at home mom so no I will not be quitting my "job". I would put 10% into a slush/vacation fund and the rest would go towards paying down our mortgage, fulfilling our Dave Ramsey plan which is to put aside 9 months of living expenses and ultimately be completely debt free.

              No, I wouldn't quit my day job! That's not enough to buy my mini mansion, but enough to pay off some bills!

              Don't forget to flip those 6's/9's.

                It depends.  If someone truly hates their work and is looking for a change, then this opportunity would work out well for them.  They have some money while they look for another job.

                  Do you mean quit a job you hate and take the time to get another job you'd love or quit working period.

                  I don't know anyone who could stretch $77,000 into a lifetime amount no matter how frugal they are and even if they have no mortgage.

                  But it would be enough to quit a job you don't like and give you a little leeway to find one you could love, maybe take some courses to give you better earning potential. Can't see it doing much more than that.

                    I know several people who had a decent pension, some savings and a 401K who quit their jobs and retired in their late fifties without winning anything so 77K might be more than enough if they had plans.

                      If you are employable you can quit your current job and move to another state and  find another job. Take home of $77,000 can cushion you for about 2 years if you don't have a family.

                      That money's gone fo ever

                        If I was 65, I might do a little "jig" on the 17th as I walked out the door...

                          Plus quitting your job can reduce the taxes you'll have to pay.

                            There was a time $77K would have been enough to entice you to quit but not so much mowadays.

                            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.
