This couple held onto a $48 million Powerball ticket for two months before claiming it. They spent the time interviewing financial planners.
“I worry about what to do with 500 bucks,” Jeff Pintuff said. “I’m so glad we had a plan for the money.”
Most lottery winners I hear about end up in a downward spiral, but they’re the ones that you always see on TV the next day. If you win the lottery you gotta be like Charlie and the Chocolate Factor. RUN CHARLIE!! Run right home! Don’t show your golden ticket to a soul!
Also, lotteries are weird. For a $48 million prize they’ll get a total of about $16 million. Where does the other $32 million go?
