“Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be.”

Unread postby Superchecker » 21 Oct 2012, 03:43

Nobody won the LottoMAX again, so next Fridays Jackpot is the maximum $50,000,000.00 again, PLUS 50 additional chances at $1,000,000.00 each!

You never know!

A guy I worked with 25 years ago won $25,000,000.00 like 2 months ago now....

It would be a GREAT day to win $50,00,000.00 tonight!

Heck, I'd be happy with the $500,000 for getting all 4 Extra numbers!

You never know! :w00t!:

1st thing: Change the phone number! :tongue:
2nd: book some time off from work and a flight out of town, even before you pick up the cheque!
3rd: pay off the mortgage....
4th: Depending on how much we're talking about: I have a brother, sister, & mom, and the Mrs has her dad, sister, and 4 grown Nieces & Nephews to think about... Not to mention our great circle of friends... Charities...

Travel more, work less would be our motto...

I used to always say, that even if we won big, I wouldn't move from where I am. But that was before we moved from that place. Now, I'd move in a heartbeat. =)

I guess the first thing would be to hire a financial advisor.

No, no, no...

You get some sort of financial advisor...

Maybe "lock in" a large part of the money into accounts that only give you enough to live comfortably (weekly/monthly allowance) for like 20 years or so....

I'm not saying that there aren't worthwhile groups and charities that could benefit from a lotto jackpot win....

But what I am saying is that it would be nice to have a "nest egg" that took care of all regular expenses such as mortgage, vehicles, monthly bills, sports for the kids, a yearly vacation, etc...

To get a little more ahead than average...

If you could set up a win so as to get say $1,000 a week for 10, 15 or 20 years, then you'd be "Set for Life"... No credit card debt... No Mortgage... Kids educations would be paid for, if they chose to pursue post secondary schooling...

The main jackpot never goes any higher than $50,000,000.00...

It's the number of the extra MaxMillion's sets of numbers that can increase if no one won the prevoius weeks jackpot... I believe we're up to 50 sets of extra MaxMillion prizes of $1,000,000.00 each...
