That is excellent! Way to smile down on your Ohana, Tutu. Eh, maybe you could give my deceased grandmother a nudge to check me and my Powerball numbers. Come on Mom Helen (you were always my favorite grandma), I promise to use it wisely!!

Guess who just became the most popular woman in Waipahu. Did she really want this information put out to the public?

Stay in Vegas, don't bring or spend the money in the islands, some people don't want gambling so do them a favor and do not spread the winnings at home.....

She should move from Hawaii; otherwise, her vulture friends and family will borrow money from her until she has nothing, but taxes to pay. lol

Actually, you don't need friends they will be asking for hand outs/ Use the winnings and get out of Hawaii if you are smart. Hawaii is anti-gambling. Now they going rip you off with the taxes.

Pay off the car loan.
Take advantage of the low housing market and buy two or three apartments, condo, or townhouse. Live in one and rent out the other two. Keep everything in your name legally. Beware family, friends, and boyfriends who now have their eyes on the money.
Otherwise, most of the money will be gone in a few years or less.

Why are the stupid people in Hawaii against gambling? Keep the money here, not in Vegas.

You should have kept your name anonymous. Now you'll be getting annoying calls from friends, family, organizations, and strangers pleading for some cash....

After taxes and spreading your wealth around, you'll discover that 2 million really isn't that much money. Beware of scammers!

Look up and talk to the Mililani postal worker who won much more from Vegas recently.
Hang on to every dime.
Boyfriend and everyone you know will want a new car.
Relatives and family will ask for help to pay off their house loan and you can live with them.
Or buy your own place and they will all live with you, cars in the yard, freeloaders.
Go back to school, finish and graduate. Get a good job with the city, state, or professional trade.
Now it's time to grow up and be your own person.
