The only thing I can think of at the moment, is that I would consider increased security measures.

    No. I still plan to invest most of the windfall. It's too much money to not help out family members and close family friends. I plan to set buts for charity giving, sharing with family and friends. Once the money is gone, its gone.

    May the balls bounce in your favor!

       I will definitely be using a safety deposit box in a bank.

       I've been rich and I've been poor. Believe me, rich is better.

            LOL, Why not add a 3rd 454 to it?  Bigger, better, faster.

                It's funny hearing people on radio station nj1015.   I would talk to someone about also how to invest and make money on the interest.  I also heard that if you don't touch majority of winnings you have a really decent chance of the next three generations.

                  LOL I meant to say, I plan to set budgets for charity giving, sharing with family and friends. Some times I don't proof read what I type.

                    For me yes. I'd now be able to actually afford having one girlfriend for every ethnicity instead of just 3 or 4...

                      I heard that too! I didn't run that stats because with the jackpot being where it's at, it doesn't matter how much the monthly interest is, I'll make it last. Somehow my family and I will "make do" - even if we have to cut corners and trim the fat! LOL

                      btw, I don't know how accurate this is but someone said the interest comes out to around $600k a month.

                          The jackpot winning ticket will be purchased for $2 regardless of how many other tickets a player buys and a single winner taking the cash will have approximately $550 million after taxes. They could spend $150,000 a day for the next 100 years on a $2 investment.
