    And now it'll only grow 300k each month.

    Sure I would give some to charity, but man the whole thing, 14.3 million would make one hell of a church!

    Maybe he is his own church, like the Duggars.

    The church and charity gig might just be a clever ploy to keep people away!

    I never see them explain how these jackpot winnings are paid out. Is it $14 million over 20 years or more? Does he get less for a lump sum payment??

    If you're factoring in the annuity calculation taking home 40% sounds closer.

    By default, the advertised payout is a 25-year annuity, which is another big reason NOT to play these machines.
