              No, he turned a $1 into 680k. Sweet millions is false advertisment.

                    "Frequent Lottery Player Wins "Sweet" Prize.

                    Nathaniel Brown, of Elizaville, Columbia County won the $1,000,000 top prize on the February 27 Sweet Million drawing.

                    Brown said he plays the Lottery often both draw games and instant games. He has won smaller amounts before, but this is his first "big win."

                    Brown bought his ticket on February 27 the day of the drawing. He went to the Getty station in Ancram to buy ketchup, and since he plays Sweet Million often, he decided to buy a ticket for that night's drawing.

                    He waited until Saturday, March 1 to check his ticket when he was in Stewart's. The self-checker was broken, so he handed his ticket to the store clerk to check it for him. The clerk scanned the ticket and told him, "You hit the jackpot!" Brown said his first reaction was "utter surprise."

                    Brown claimed his ticket on March 3 at the Lottery's Fishkill Customer Service Center. Brown said he is unsure about his plans for the money. He wants to take some time to really think about what to do with his winnings before making any decisions.

                    The winning numbers for the February 27 Sweet Million drawing were 05-12-19-20-33-38."

                      Um, Thrifty, we have yet another problem here buddy. See, most folks around 'these parts' just aren't interested in a measly $1M dollars 'cause it ain't gonna fix nothin'. Life would just go on as if nothing ever happened. Even after taxes and all, the winner would be still left with well over $500K and this isn't enough to pay off a house, student loan, a few medical bills, etc. If you're not rollin' with at least $500M to win, then it's a waste of time...as they say.

                      However, the smart folk that really wish they could get their hands on that same $1M already know they could triple or even quadruple it in the right business...especially in Texas. This type of money easily affords the intelligent person to quit working for others and work for themselves...employ other people to work for them and help make them money. Thrifty, believe it or not, but most people would end up dead broke because they have absolutely no plan or mentality for such a windfall. All they know is that they wanna win as much as they possibly can so they can buy all their 'stuffs' and do nothing. If they could care less about winning $1M, then they'll care less about pissing right through it...it's all in the mentality. You know, I'd like to hear some of these people talk to some of the most successful and influential people around that started with substantially less than $1M...closer to maybe $50K-$100K and are now millionaires.

                      Let's hear them tell those people, "Naaw, a million bucks really isn't enough money to really do anything with."

                          I have to agree with a lot of what you posted.

                          Let's face it, a million bucks in today's dollars sure isn't what it used to be.  But a lot also depends upon the personal financial situation of the person who won it too, not to mention their motivation or goals in general.

                          A 660K (after taxes) Sweet Million win wouldn't "fix" much for me. That's because I dont have a lot that needs "fixing". For me personally, winning 660K would not only pay off my house, but both of my daughter's student loans as well.  Additionally, it would pay off some other small personal loans I have.  After  everything was paid off, there'd be a hefty pile of money left over to add to my retirement account.

                          I play Sweet Million (and the lottery in general) not because I really feel the need/desire to be rich, but rather I view winning 660K as the key to making my family life today a little more comfortable, not to mention making my three young adult childen and my wife's future a lot more secure.   

                          I play Sweet Million in particular due to it's relatively low odds to win a million. (In terms of lottery odds, paying one dollar for 3.8 million to 1 odds to win a million dollars sure beats paying a dollar for the 22.5 million to 1 odds NY's game "Lotto" offers.)  I'm also willing to pay the 10 dollars per ticket it costs for the twice yearly state raffle in Connecticut called "SuperDraw".  That game offers 275,000 to 1 odds to win a million dollars.  It's very tough to find lower odds than that anywhere to win a million. As for PowerBall and MegaMillion, when I play them (which isnt often) I always buy the PowerPlay or the Megaplier, but the reason why I'm really playing them is for a second place 5 number win. I dont worry about (deam about?) winning the jackpot with those games.

                          About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!
