Brad Duke was an exercise instructor in Idaho when he suddenly won a huge $220 million Powerball jackpot in 2005. He was so stunned he kept it to himself for a few weeks.
Unlike 60% of people who has won more than $10 million, 11 years later Duke is far from broke. His initial hesitation allowed him to form a team composed of attorneys, a publicist and a banker to guide him. He even kept his job for 2-1/2 years after winning. Now he is content with continuing to grow his wealth so he can achieve all of his life goals.
