    ...is an obscene amount of money. In those cases where I have played on amounts above that, the plan is to set up a  trust to distribute it amongst family members.

    I also discipline myself to only buy tickets for the larger games when the jackpot is a multiple of 13, as the annuity they pay out with is a 26-year one. Someone suggested that I should take a lump sum payout, but the point has so far been moot: I never have won. Should I play and win, we'll see from there...
