So the jackpots up to 1.4 billion. Ive never even played the lottery, i am thinking about taking 60 neetbux and buying 30 auto selected tickets so i dont have to come up with numbers. My life sucks, maybe im finally due for a win. You guys gonna play tomorrows powerball drawing?

Even if most people don't approve of how she spent a small sum of her money, it's nice that someone poor can enjoy it until it runs out. We don't truly know what we'd really do with the money - as much as I'd want to start up an empire of some kind it'd still take years of hard work to establish it. Chances are if one of us robots won, we would just be lazy and not do much with it.

Its already up to $1.5 Billion ($930 million cash value) and still 31 hours before the draw.

So if there is a single winner, by then it could literally be over a billion dollars actual money before taxes.

I bought a bunch of tickets in the hopes I can match the first 5 numbers, because in Cali that prize depends on tickets sales, and could reach like 14 million divided among everyone who wins the prize

I just explained the total valuation of the lotto is based on tvm. Taking the lump sum means you get the money and in x amount of years invested at market rate it will be worth 1.4 years before taxes. You fucking idiot, your father changes the topic when you come up in conversation. You only get 1.4 bil if you take the annuity. Just kill yourself

Usually you set up 2-3 bank accounts with the best "CDs" you can afford and you fill up those accounts to their limit, then the rest either goes into stocks or hedge funds.

Unfortunately you can't physically put that kind of money somewhere, and banks have limits because if they go bankrupt they don't want to end up paying $600 million to some asshole who lost his money through the bank.

It makes you wonder how rich and famous people handle their money.

That would be a bad investment. Rich people are obsessed with good investments. The lottery is your only chance to get millions with less than 10 bucks. They wouldn't feel too happy if they didn't win with just a few tickets.
>>
>>25703593

No need. If you win the lottery that's pretty much all your luck. Even the experts can't beat market average. Just buy mutual funds and call it a day. Just buy 100% allocation into VTSAX or the institutional equivalent. That's all anyone needs to know, whether you have $10k or $10 billion, you will not beat average. Average is literally average, it's unbeatable, because at some point regression towards the mean will fuck your shit up. If you hate vanguard for some stupid reason just get any broad us based mutual fund. Even just tracking the s&p500 and or djia will give you a good enough run.

>>25703895

I'll repeat it then. Two words:buy VTSAX. Think of it as a stock that is all the stocks. Diversity is good in a portfolio, right? You can't get more diverse than owning everything. This is how you guarantee average. Buy all the stocks, then make all the stocks one 'stock'. This one 'stock' will always be average returns.

It's really that simple. vanguard.com, buy VTSAX. Buy and hold, then enjoy something in the neighborhood of 10% return averaged over the years. Say you buy and hold X years, you could gain 30% one year, lose 50% another, it's not money, it's position, or ownership of companies. Over time your average becomes average-er. Gain of 30% or loss of 50% don't matter when they are actually a gain of 10%. Buy and hold then sell as needed. Market timing is even dumber that picking individual stocks. VTSAX is a lifetime commitment and the best choice you will ever make it your life.

There is a ceiling on your tax rate. Once you exceed this it makes no difference. Take the hit, cry once, then invest and see it grow. Otherwise by taking the annual payout is a cuck and letting them enjoy investing and profiting from your money. You have to think about money in terms of your entire life span. More money over a lifetime is better than less. Cost/benefit analysis 101.

Well, state lottery taxes are far less than normal state tax. But like the anon you quoted said, take the fucking hit and take the lump sum. It's like you guys are forgetting it's 600 million fucking dollars. You need to take the lump sum and immediately plan out and pay for a large business - you can't really do that with annuity.
>>
>>25704296
Shut up stupid the tax isnt different on the annuity. The entire winnings are taxed for their lifetime. For one a million dollars goes to the store that sold the ticket. You "make" more with the annuity because of interest taxation is the fucking same daft retard.

You'd have to be a gigantic idiot to have a 100% stock asset allocation if you won the lottery.

When you have that much money, you aren't looking to get capital gains, you're looking to preserve the wealth and that means extreme diversification, especially in to safe assets.

You'd want everything. Stocks, bonds, CDs, TIPS, real estate, precious metals, and everything else you can think of.

That's not what I said in my post at all. You're claiming the taxes are all the same and they're not - period. My state's tax is almost 10%. Lotto tax is 5%. Different percentages. And why is it so important to get a little more than 600 million dollars over a lifetime? You never know what the future holds so fuck annuity.

Yeah, that's a smart plan there.

Take the lump sum. After you pay taxes once, it'd be (roughly) $570,000,000, assuming a $930,000,000 lump sum. Then you can invest it and pay significantly less in taxes, since it's capital gains, not income.

I'm highly considering using numerology to win the lottery, although I'm scared because regarding the number 13 in numerology:

>If this power is used for selfish purposes, it will bring destruction of the self, and in turn, this will bring dis-ease and illnesses.

Is it really selfish if I plan to do good things? It can be so perfect. My life path number is 7. I buy 7 tickets at 7 pm on the 13th day. It's my dad's bday and my bday was exactly a month prior on the 13th day (part of the calculation of my life path #). The number 7 gets even more personal with me, so this should at least net me a match 5 win. My other fear is not being able to purchase at 7 pm tomorrow night due to crowded stores or running out of ticket paper.
I got this idea from a lotto doc I watched earlier, dude supposedly used numerology to successfully win 32 million dollars.

theres a FINITE amount of number combinations, i think its 292,000,000

if they are ALL taken then someone has to win

this powerball 3/4's of the number combinations have been taken, so its a 1/4 chance that there will be no winner tommorow

I usually play one or two quick picks a week for either powerball or megamillions, regardless of jackpot size.

If you win a billion dollars at Powerball they're going to plaster your face all over the television anyway. It's not like you'll be able to keep it a secret. Even if you live in one of the few states that allows you to stay anonymous, media stalkers are still going to hunt your ass down.

I'm in it for $40, 20 plays.

I never play, because I, too, consider it the stupid tax. I know it's a bad bet, but I figure it's a greater average return with the jackpot being so high, so I got in.

I would start gentrifying the fuck out of California and getting rid of the riff raff. I would buy up property, profit, buy up more property, etc. I would set up rental policies to encourage decent, productive people to stay, and degenerates to leave. I would also try to run for office and try to implement productive laws and get rid of leftist constriction laws that are ruining my state.

They literally made it twice as hard to win. Why do you think it got so high in the first place? Nobody has won the jackpot since the changes went into effect in October. You might win a couple of bucks. The odds of winning anything are 1 in 38.32, and that only gets you $4.

Just buy one ticket. $2 gets you a day or two of fantasy to enjoy and then when it's over you've only spent $2.

Rich people don't play the lotto generally other than at times like this when the jackpot is so high. Overwhelmingly it's the poorest people who play the most, and they play regularly. Wealthier people play for fun, but the poor play out of desperation hoping to turn their life around with a jackpot. The worse the economy gets, the more people play and during the recession at least half of lotto states broke sales records.

I always suspect that the many, many people that can avoid getting their faces plastered on the news after winning the lottery are the rich ones.

Well there are nearly 300,000,000 combinations x$2 would be a horrible investment. And that's not a guarantee that all combinations will be produced. Last drawing saw over a billion dollars in sales but only 75% of possible combinations printed.

>how rich and famous people handle their money

Most of their wealth is invested in many different assets. It could be real estate, ETFs, whatever. Usually if you're uber rich you have someone who handles all of your money for you, and you've got cash available to you along with money invested across several investment vehicles. If you ever need more than you have immediately available you just call up your money guy and tell them how much you need and they'll liquidate what's necessary to come up with the funds.

well desu its not for everyone. Some people would be genuinely happier as wagecucks for live than to even win $3 million, but $1.5 billion over 29 years, or $950mil up front, I venture to say it would wreck most people. If I am the only jackpot winner I would take the annuities because its far less risky than rushing to assemble a plan to manage that much money on my own, and is more than enough to live in luxury several lifetimes, and I would want to invest/donate it in a way that actually improves quality of life, health and happiness for people and the planet.

forgot exactly what the process is, but the annuities are invested in government securities and interest is not taxable like if you invested the money yourself.

Furthermore, there are 2 occasions when you should absolutely take the annuity over the lump sum. The first being if the jackpot is so small that the annuity payments would be in a lower tax bracket, like if I buy a super lotto ticket tomorrow and win the $7 million jackpot or half of it. The other situation is when the jackpot is so ridiculously huge that the first annuity payment alone will financially liberate you for life, and having it all right away is actually more detrimental to your long term financial stability and quality of life than if you take it on gradually, and have a practically guaranteed increasing annual income for the next 29 years.
