    Describe your massive lotto win dream home. You're a big (white belt wearing) golfer, right? Simulator? Putting green? Par 3 course? Anything else interesting?

    Not sure I'd have one massive house bc I wouldn't be in one house all the time. I'd have several nice houses. One here in Jax ($5m), one in Orange Beach ($5m), and one in NYC ($30m). I'd spend a lot of time following the Yankees, some time at the beach, and then relax here in Jax. I'd buy an RV in NYC and hire someone to drive me across the country. Once I got to SF, I'd give the RV away to a homeless person and jump on a boat and travel the world one port at a time.

    Hoo boy at the shoe collection though. I'd travel the world with a few friends and dig vintage spots unearthing old pairs.

    If you listen to his press conference he states that he is going to buy a raptor pick up and the rest is going into accounts etc that his advisers who he has hired are telling him to do

    He was living off his ex wife and now his mom for the last 15 years. The fact dude has been looking for work for a year and said it had to be the right opportunity shows his character. The right opportunity is whoever is hiring if you've been looking for a job for a year.

    Info released about Mega Millions winner, some of her planned charitable donations
    Woman was visiting Greenville, bought ticket during ‘scenic drive’

    GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. —
    A woman who won a $1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot is sharing more details about her winning ticket purchase, and some of the causes she plans to support with it.

    (Archive video above about act of kindness that led to win)

    Advertisement
    The woman, who is remaining anonymous, is from South Carolina, and was visting Greenville in October when she decided to “go on a scenic drive.” Her ride took her past the KC Mart in Simpsonville, where the signs showing the incredibly large jackpot caught her eye.

    The woman decided to take a chance and purchase a ticket, never once thinking she had the slightest chance to win.

    She said after checking her ticket the morning after the drawing, she was in complete shock and disbelief. She stared motionless at the ticket for what felt like hours, then came the jumping and screams of joy.

    The winner said she spent time researching experienced professionals to help preserve her anonymity and manage her newfound wealth.

    “I hired a team with experience handling large jackpot winners,” the winner said. “I want to make sure I make all of the right decisions, which is why I have taken this amount of time to collect my prize.”

    “Words can’t describe the feeling of such incredible luck,” she said. “I do realize that such good fortune carries a tremendous social responsibility, and it gives me a unique opportunity to assist, support and contribute to charities and causes that are close to my heart.”

    Attorney Jason Kurland announced that the winner would like to begin her philanthropic endeavors and show her appreciation to South Carolina and the city of Simpsonville by giving charitable donations to the following organizations:

    • Ronald McDonald House of Charities of Columbia, S.C.
    • One SC Fund, for Hurricane Florence relief
    • In The Middle, Columbia, S.C., financial assistance to breast cancer patients
    • City of Simpsonville Art Center
    • American Red Cross Alabama Region, for the tornado relief fund
    A news release said: "As anyone could imagine, this is a life‐changing moment, and while winning such a large sum is undoubtedly a blessing, it comes with its own set of risks and challenges.

    "In this age of social media, where you can find information on just about anybody, including where someone lives and works, safety is a significant concern."

    The winner said she is thankful that South Carolina allows lottery winners to claim their prize anonymously and sincerely hopes that her wish to remain anonymous is respected so that she can live a life of relative normalcy, free of fear.

    “The South Carolina Education Lottery staff was extremely professional and dutiful through each phase of the claim process,” Kurland said. “Their handling of the extensive detail and challenges associated with the anonymity of the winner was exceptional and I am grateful for their efforts.”

    If I had won that money you'd be hearing the Lotto Lawyer talk about my charitable donation to the "My Big Ass House" Fund so good for her that she won and not me.

    Also sounds like she’s pretty well off. Could be to throw off the scent so to speak, but possible she didn’t need any money fronted.

    He and his girlfriend bought 2 tickets together.......neither hit. Then he pulled out the ticket he bought separately haha.

    I’m assuming there was no confusion because of the store that he bought them at.
