If you were to win the lottery, what do you think that you would do? Would you take one lump sum, or would you get paid out year after year? If you take the year after year option, your yearly payment goes up each time by 5%. According to

Annuity payments may vary by state and lottery company. Powerball’s annuity option offers 30 payments over 29 years.  Mega Millions’ annuity option uses an annually-increasing rate schedule. There is an initial payment and 29 annual payments, each larger than the previous year’s payout.

Hopefully, there is a winner tonight for the big Powerball Jackpot. When the record-setting jackpot was drawn last year, there was one of the biggest delays in Powerball history. For all states, there is a two-step verification and balance system to make sure that everything is fair and proper. In Minnesota, one of the steps did not balance out the other checks-and-balances causing a 10 hour delay in the lottery drawing.
