we all dream we will win or believe we will win the big money.only one set of numbwrs will win.

 

If you were given the opportunity to ask the winner of this coming jackpot two questions, what would they be?

my two would be:

how long after you won, did the inquiries for your money begin?

what is your favorite sobstory letter you received? 

Of course my questions are for a month after the announcements.

    Cool I would ask myself after I win...  Now that I am part of the Uber elite, highest tax bracket, do I plan on staying there for the rest of my life ?

     Who will I share with ?  Family ?  Friends ? Charity ?

     How do I make my windfall last for my life time and my heirs life times ?  Because winning a life changing amount once is a fluke and will not be repeated. 

    Good Luck to all LP members for tonight's MM jackpot of $140,000,000.00 !!!White Bounce

      First question,

      Was it a quick pick or not. If not then I would like to know how long they have played that combo. 

      Second question

      How much money on average they spent monthly on lottery before winning.

      That money's gone fo ever

        Question#1: Do you have any of that Lottery Pixie Dust left? 

         

        Question#2: If you not going to use anymore of it  -  could l have that LAST bag? 

         

        * But in all seriousness- l would not want to meet any of them, their win is private & l would respect that, l would expect the same in return should l pull it off.

          Question 1: After you won and put your house on the market, did you live in the house while it was for sell or, did you just leave the house staged/empty?

          Question 2: When you meet people who don't know that you won the PB/MM Jackpot, how do you answer, "what you do for a living"/ "how do you pay for everything (this house)?"  - (could be a new neighbor asking, noticing you don't seem to have regular work hours). Of course if you look old enough to be retired, this question would not be asked. However, the "what did you do for a living would still come up".

            1. Are you going to quit your job (because I would in a heartbeat)...
            2. Did you choose quick pick or your own numbers...

              In the first month: Are you happy?

              In the first 2 years: Do you wish you could give it back?

                First question: How many people have asked you if it was a quick pick?

                (J/K, what difference does it make, yeesh?)

                First question:  Did you give yourself a cool down period for reality to set in?

                Second question: How many people have given you advice already?

                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.

                    I have posted this before. I met a man who won the California lottery in a Poker Bar, about 2 years after he had won. I asked him this question, "did you take installments or cash", because he was in his early 30's. His response was, " I took cash payments and with the first check, I paid off my home and still had money left. The next installment will be invested. He was planning on retiring at 40.

                          Did you consider taking your funds anonymously?

                              Piggybacking off Max's excellent first question, I too would want to know how much of his life he chose to change, and how much was he forced to change. 

                              If anyone has watched the lottery documentary Lucky, it's kinda funny how many intended to stay in the same house or neighborhood, and who planned to keep the same friends, but who quickly gave up that dream once the stalking and harassment and resentment gained steam.
