A lucky lotto player from New Jersey USA is the winner of a huge jackpot worth $315 million. If the winner chooses to take the one time payment prize then it is worth $183.2 million if the winner takes the lump sum. The winner can also get an installment of payments worth the whole $315 million throughout 30 years.
If the jackpot were won by a syndicate it could bring up some issues though. When playing with a syndicate the syndicate must have a signed agreement form. When we are talking about so much money it is best to have a signed agreement ahead of time with the syndicate and it’s leader. Also when a syndicate wins. it is much harder to try to stay anonymous as so many people and families will already know about the win and word will spread like wildfire.
