The well-known theory that winning a huge jackpot either when playing casino games or the Lottery will more often than not doom the winner to a live of misery, bad choices and eventually poverty is enough to cause a supreme panic.
The good news is that the popular opinion is in fact no more than a casually concocted myth. In other words, its not true. How do we know this? Because many of those who have won in the past are now, years on, still doing quite alright and in fact not living on any sort of breadline or benefits.
