If you won the lottery, a multi-million dollar jackpot, how would you accept the prize?

Would you take an annuity payment(26 total payments) or a lottery lump sum payout?

Annuity. Having that much cash at once has a bad effect on the average person. Before you know it it's all gone and by then you've changed your lifestyle in light of such a cashflow.

depends on the #'s. How much is the lump, how much is the payment?


But I'd prob go lump. some sound investments and I'd still get an annuity payment.

I lean towards annuity to ground what desires I'd have to splurge it in an indulgent intoxication. In theory If you won a million, you would get a lump sum check of about 500k. But a 20 year annuity would be at almost 50k for 20 years, seemingly better value. But you could always work that 500k into something much bigger.

I want it all now. Money is worth more now than it is later. I have enough self control not to blow it either. I'd invest most of live off the interest and have trust funds set up so my kids will be set.

I'd know full well the lump sum would be the mistake and take the shit out of it anyway. I'd try and use it to launch some of my ideas, inventions, and stuff. I'd also develop an addiction to cocaine and strippers. Or rather, I'd actually be able to afford those addictions I was likely born with.

Lump

If I blow all that money at least I figured out I was a fucking moron in the process!

Lump. I just know 1 way or another I wouldn't get all my payments. Either the world would end, they would run out of money or just stop the lotto. I'll take it while you got it.

Lump sum simply so you could check your balance and see that tasty figure.

I'd also use the lump some to hire PIs to investigate every aspect of my exewife and her family and ideally send them all to prison. If that fails I'd use the money for my defense after the FBI busts me for hiring a fake hitman.

Exactly, plus if you die you can't transfer the money.

I made a deal with Uncle Creepy. I'm gonna put the life savings on him vs Mouse and I'll split the money with him and he is gonna split his earnings with me. Then we will get matching tattoos and sword fight in the bathroom. Well we really did agree to the first part and my lawyer says it's a legally binding verbal agreement.
