For instance would you settle for the cash payout on a starting MM jackpot or take the Annuity. .Just because?

    As in the amounts would be equal no matter what?

     

    I'd take the cash, always.

              Cash is king!

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

              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.

                Vinh Nguyen, who won 228.4 mil in PB last Sept in California, took the annuity. He was only 26 y/o, if I remember correctly.

                 

                For me it wd have to be cash.

                      It would be great feeling running your hands through a stack of money, or just laying on it.... because you can.
