I recently read a story about a 24-year-old suburban Milwaukee man who won a $768 million Powerball jackpot, the third largest in U.S. lottery history. The gentleman took a $477 million lump sum payout that was reduced to a “measly” $326 million after state and federal taxes.
Wow, what I wouldn’t do with a measly $326 million! If
you’re like most people I know, you’ve also thought about winning a big prize
and what you’d do with the winnings.
Now the odds of winning one of these lotteries is very
small, perhaps only about 1 in 300 million or so (give or take a few million).
Although we don’t offer millions of dollars in prize money,
NCP does have a wide range of sweepstakes, which
are awarded weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly.
