Scoring a big lottery jackpot like that would have me set for the rest of my life! The very first thing I would do is find a good financial advisor to help me develop a plan that will make that money grow and help my family out for generations... Instead of blowing through it all in a few months like some winners do! I'm following this system I found online (simply titled "Lottery Method"; here's a review if you're interested: http://gamblingsystemreviews.net/lottery-method/ ) It's true that the lottery is mostly a game of chance, but this ebook tells you which numbers have historically had the most success, which ones rarely come up, and mistakes people make when choosing their numbers. I'm quite certain my chances are increased now that I know these tactics.
