    read that the winner will get $677K in cash. so how does that work? is it an annuity and the winner chose the lump sum? is it 1.3mio cash but big wins are taxed at 50%?

    WoF is paid out in a 20 or 25 year annuity. Didn't know you could take a lump sum like in many states lotteries. Federal tax on this would be about 33%, then there may be state tax depending on where you live or where it was won.

    IMHO, looks like they took a lump sum.
