      I believe that this Mega million draw will change the winner's life forever.  I plan on investing in CDARS/ICS, Jumbo CDs, Treasuries, mutual funds, stocks, and bonds, real estate. I will share with friends and family. On my terms, not theirs. 

     I am a lottery dreamer.

        Don't forget Identity Theft Protection in case your name gets out.  Also, if you want to remain anonymous, have EVERYONE (including family members) to sign NDAs.

          It seems like the more plans people make for money not yet won the more likely the jackpot just rolls over. 

          It's fine to have a plan but broadcast it after the win.

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any. So many systems, so many theories, so few jackpot winners.

          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 agree with Identity Theft Protection. But that is State specific. Here in California, our names will be released to the public. The States that grant anonymity are one step ahead of the rest of us. 

             Umbrella Protection also known as Excessive Liability Coverage may help you fight threats.

             More power to you when you get family and friends to sign NDAs. Non-Disclosure Agreements. This is also State specific. 

             Good Luck Sarge0202!!

              Coin Toss:  We are bored and have nothing else to do. LOL.  The balls have no senses. They do not feel, see, taste, hear, think so the rollovers and the winnings are completely fair and random. 

               Be prepared. There will also be things that we have not thought about that we will encounter as new lottery winners.

               Although I think of randomness I do stop and think that God has an invisible hand in some of these jackpots.  For example, the family in Illinois who lost a daughter than checked their tickets and won $4.5 million Annuity. The tickets had been stuffed into a cookie jar and the Mom threatened to throw them out if they were not taken to the store and checked.

               Just like in the economy overall there is an invisible hand at work. 

               Personally, I will delay claiming. I will get my ducks in a row and let the craziness subside.

                Tickets stuffed into a cookie jar?  No one checks the tickets, and the mother had to threaten them, that is a funny way to finally realize you won and won big! 

                I have to admit I will wait to see if the jackpot rolls so there is no hurry to check my tickets but I think the longest I waited was a couple of weeks.  Got surprised with a couple of dollars lol.

                    Investment research resource . . Morningstar.  There are only so many investment categories . . take the research initiative to determine your own allocation percentages!

                    Establishing a revocable trust for estate planning purposes (NOT tax evasion) is relatively easy . . Suze Orman.  The document is basically an "empty shoebox" . . the hard part is re-titling real estate, financial accounts, and vehicles into the name of the trust.

                      gy65, www.morningstar.com  is definitely an excellent referral. Thanks.

                       I do not know about Suze Orman. 

                       If you make a mistake in creating your trusts you may end up in Probate court. The attorney who should have created the trust will represent you there. Be aware of this conflict of interest with an attorney. Hire a tax attorney, you can afford him/her.

                       See Ya!

                        You still need to consult an expert in trusts and trusts include other documents such as medical directives, etc. It has to have certain language in accord with your state law. I had one done and since trusts and estates is not my area of practice, I consulted an attorney who did this type of work 24/7. It was easy to retitle bank accounts, retirement accounts, etc. and all it took was a form and a copy of the cover page of the trust and I did this myself. You do not send copies of your detailed trust. Vehicles pass with your estate and do not need to be retitled unless you have a collector type of high end car. The longest wait was retitling property but my attorney handled that form. Retitling was easy. The hard part was addressing page after page of what if medical directives, deciding who gets what in the trust, what charities to include, etc.

                        And you do not need to be retirement age to set up a revocable trust. My attorney remarked that her clients were usually older than me but it can be done at any age. I assured her I was healthy and not dying..lol.

                        Remember this is a living trust so you are still the trustee while alive or not incapacitated so nothing changes in your daily life or taxes when you retitle things.

                        Love Suze Orman but she is off about trusts.

                        Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grace.  We will rebuild!

                          music,

                          There's a saying in Vegas, cards, dice and roulette balls have eyes, ears, and no heart. (They see what you bet, hear what you bet, and get a kick out of you not winning).

                          Guess we can add lottery numbers to that.

                          Oh and on your winning plans, going back to the mistakes players make thread, you're assuming a solo hit. Not always the case. Nught skew your plans a wee bit.

                              Las Vegas, Lost Wages. I agree that we can add lottery numbers to that.

                               I do have a bunch of birthday numbers on quick picks. I will most likely have to share the jackpot. 

                              Good Luck to you Coin Toss and win PB tonight.
