With the impending draw of the Powerball Lottery looking to rollover to nearly $500 million dollars, many players are excitedly buying more entries. But former winner Salazar Salazar Jr. has some advice for whoever wins
He cautions winners to be careful not to squander their winnings. Salazar knows that many former winners have lost their fortune almost overnight. Having come from a poor family, he was very cautious with his winnings – a $15 million lump sum he won almost four years ago. Aside from buying homes for himself and his parents, he has made no other major purchases. He wants to save as much of the money as he can, to ensure his children do not experience poverty like he did.
