    I read in the paper about a guy who won a 1 million dollar Washington State lottery a few months ago and opted for the one-time lump sum payment. He got to keep about 435k after taxes.

      It's usually not only the taxes on those lotteries. The $1 million payout they advertise is only if you take the monthly payouts; it's what you end up getting over time - if you live long enough. The lump sum starts out as much less than $1 million, and then you pay the taxes.

      False advertising is what I call it. They wouldn't let a private casino get away with it.
