after winning lottery

Imagine you won 1 third of 564 milion $ jackpot as one woman (mother of four children) in North Carolina did, 2015. Chances for this are like 1 in 175 million. What would you do if you win this amount of money?

Philippines Pcso lottery is very wide known in the country. It's needless to say everybody plays Lotto some time. The same situation is in USA. American players bought tickets with 70 nillion dollars in 2014.

Did you win big?

After acknowledging you won check the numbers one more time. We know you did it already twenty times. But do it one more time with different source. Results are to find on youtube, on our page, and on Pcso Gov. page. Naxt what you need to do is:

1. Don't tell anyone
- it's very hard but needed. It is ok not telling even your wife or husband. History knows situations when a partner of lottery winner dropped one small word about the winnings and whole village started to come to their doors and beg for the money. All the time, seriously.

2. Sign the ticket
- Simply get a pen and sign the ticket backwards with your hand writing name and surname. Do not use a pencil because it can get erased.

3. Take a photo or a movie
- it is important to make some another claim of the ticket. Take o photo of the ticket with your face visible on it. You can even make short video because nobody will be able to forge such an evidence of your win. Nobody will steal from you, because ticket will be unusable.

4. Claim ticket with a phone call
- You have quite much time to collect money, but first you can just call to announce to Pcso that you win and you are goin to claim the prize. Depending of the lottery you can have up to a year to claim. Check Pcso Gov. site to be sure.

5. Hire financial adviser or a lawyer
- you may need to figure out some things before coming for the prize. You would like to be anonymous. Also you need to figure out with lottery directors how your prize will be delivered to you (bank account eg.).

6. Taxes
- if there are taxes, lawyer will help you with managing it.

Knowing this don't try to win for any cost possible. Don't blow all your money for playing lottery tickets. The chances are really small. Actually they are smaller than being striked by a lightning.

Smart lottery winners

Very often big winners lose their money in a year! But we are happy to say that some people are smarter when it comes to managing big money.

1. Peter Lavery got 10 million pounds reacher. He was ordinary bus driver. He quit the job but later started to work even harder. With money he won, he bought big house and nice car. He gave much money to the charity. He given generously to his family members. Rest of the moneyhe used for bussiness. Now it turns out he has over 30 properties and is working on some new project that will give him stable, even bigger money income. HE likes to keep his bussiness in secret, but many found out that he already tripled his 10 millions winning. For example he has opened whiskey distillery business.

2. When Brad Duke won Powerball 220 millipon $ he was already an investor. Back then he already owned 5 gyms franchise. This man kept his job because he wanted to become billionaire. After taking lump sum prize of 86 million $ he doubled it in one year. He even developed a system to keep winning some smaller amounts of money..

3. Richard Lustig won lottery 7 times. He wrote a book "Learn how to increase your chances of winning the lottery" he is famous for. Anyway his winnings were probably only matter of luck. Although, he became famous in tv because people believed him. But remember - winning big lottery is only luck. What's more nobody knows how much Lustig invested in tickets and how much exactly he won. He was smart enough to write a book and on behave of people's needs he earned huge money selling systems that can't work.

4. Thompson couple won 2 million pound in 1995 and still in 2010's they get profits. They were so smart they new that having 2 million pounds is not reach but only good wealth. They quit their jobs and decided to buy "bed and breakfast" business. Then they bought a restaurant. They worked hard many hours every day in the restaurant. They lifes changed and they earned a lot of money after winning the lotto.

5. West couple won biggest single powerball jackpot. They hired a financial advisor who told them to make a monthly budget of 100,000 $ which was stupid and way too much. They bought houses for the family and invested rest of the money. Afer all these years the are still working in their jobs.

6. Les Robins, a teacher won 117 million $ Powerball jackpot back in 1993. He bought large land and organised vacations for children. Winegator Camp is for children to escape internet, electronic devices, facebook etc just to enjoy other activities like gym, stable, a pool, golf course. He wanted kids to be doing what he was doing when he was young.

As you see, after winning the lottery you can be reasonable!
