If you're the lucky son-of-a-gun who hits the $1.6 billion jackpot, you’ll be able to buy just about anything your heart could ever desire. However... That mind-blowing jackpot may be a blessing, but it can also be a curse.
Attorney Ann-Margaret Carrozza says there are major risks when becoming an overnight billionaire. For example, Rhoda Toth and her husband blew her entire $13 million Florida lottery jackpot she won in 1990. To make matters worse, she also ended up in prison for tax fraud.
If you're the big winner, you need to make sure you've got a great attorney and a great financial advisor to help you manage your winnings!
