The Chino Hills winner may have been a high level executive and may have needed some time to transition his/her position to their successor.  Most states only allow 180 days to claim and they had the luxury of a year grace period.

I agree most folks would have started enjoying their wealth much sooner but chances are this couple were well of to begin with and made absolutely sure everything was in order prior to coming forward.

There are so many unanswered questions

  • Was it a single or multi-game ticket?
  • Was it self-pick or quick-pick?
  • Were they regular players or did they only play because of the jackpot amount?

Answers we may never know because of no press conference.

Their choice, yes, but I want to know!!!

The Robinsons had 4 tickets = $8

The Nickel 95 Trust in Fla won with their own numbers

    There are some things in life that will always go unanswered. They made a choice to keep their information on what you want to know to themselves. I for one respect them for that . When a couple get married, l never want to know where they going for their honeymoon..maybe that's just me,  but I don't need a personal tour Meatman.

      It's not them I want to know more about, it's the ticket!

        Nothing to prevent you starting your own 501c3 after dumping a chunk of money into your own charitable trust & feeding the 2% a year to your own 501c3. Start a car museum or buy a couple of old aircraft etc. There are rules about benefiting from donations to your own 501c3, but if you aren't paying yourself a wage from the donations you make etc then there are ways around the personal benefit clause. Besides, with the $197M (after taxes), you shouldn't need to pay yourself a wage etc from the 501c3. Dump $47M into the trust & keep the other $150M, maybe spend 20% on REIT's. That still leaves you with $120M burning a hole in your pocket. $20M mad money, $100M in other investments. Sorted.

        You seem to understand the 'trust' game.  You in the industry?

          I think they did everything the right way and the way one should do if they won a large amount of money. I saw the picture of their old house and thats it. Haven't seen the new one or even a picture of the couple. Im sure they deleted their social media accounts like facebook, etc.

           

          If I ever won. I would do what they did.

            There was a  brief story about them on ET late last night. They (the reporter) said they took their time to get their ducks in a row, closed their social media accounts, issued a brief statement, and got out of town to figure out how to manage their new found winnings.

            They had their act together right from the get-go. Must be seasoned players. Good for them!!!  Cheers

              It's been said that the best time to move out of the neighbourhood following a Huge jackpot win is after Dark. The only creatures who should be watching you move your stuff are the cats & dogs & depending where you live, possums and raccoons in the area. You can always count on them to not say a word.

                Moving out after dark looks very shifty, though.

                My guess would be starting at 9 AM woul be best, as people are off to work or running errands.

                  More like "industry adjacent" & I did a bit of reading up on the subject  :)
