$1 billion Mega Millions winners burned breakfast, then called a lottery lawyer

What’s the first thing you do if you win the lottery?

For the winners of the billion dollar Mega Millions jackpot, it was burn breakfast, and then call a lottery lawyer.

That lawyer, Kurt Panouses, established a new club name for his clients, Wolverine FLL, and accepted the prize on their behalf from Michigan Lottery officials March 12.

He shared a few vague tidbits on the winners, while expounding more on the advice he gives them and others who have newfound wealth of mind-boggling proportions.

The winners are “really good friends who are probably best friends now.”

They are between the ages of 45 and 65.

They would be better described as all being from southeast Michigan rather than Oakland County.

They have “educational backgrounds” but Panouses would neither confirm nor deny that they are educators as was previously speculated.

The wacky lottery streak that we covered in 2018– continues in eastern Florida! While Minnesota offers scratch off games with “modest payouts” up to $200,000 the latest trend in Florida is scratch offs paying up to $15 million. A $15 million recipient and 3 other scratch-off winners have recently wandered into the same attorney office we visited in this article.

Kurt Panouses is reclining in a chaise lounge alongside his pool in Melbourne Beach Florida. The panorama reveals surf breaking in the Atlantic over his shoulder and the pool nestled into the shadow of his sprawling Mediterranean home. With his tall angular frame spilling off the chair, crisp Tommy Bahama caravan shirt and banker’s haircut, the scene oozes confidence and respectability. This is a guy you can trust with your money.

While Florida is a hotbed of lottery winners, his county, Brevard has been home to the mother lode. Florida Today called it the luckiest county in America. In fact, Panouses has provided counsel for more than 15 lottery winners out of his folksy law office in Indialantic Florida.
