Maybe you can get a good deal on their house now that they don’t need it. Detect the yard and resell it for a profit.
Win Win , everybody’s happy.

So his loot won't last long.

Maybe if they see you detecting the curb strip in front of their house they'll toss some extra clad out there for the next time

I almost went to that store to buy a ticket. Didn't go though due to weather.

Gotta play/pay to win.

Statistics show within two years most who win the lottery are more broke than before they won. Money isn't for everyone.

Default Lottery winner

Think how many detectors you could buy with that money, and a new truck to haul them around, and lease any land you want to detect, or buy your own island to detect. Endless possibilities.

......what next ? ......maybe hire people to detect for you, or at least do the digging and plug replacement

IF you got BIG money and price was no object, what would be the top of the line detector you would buy ?

Please move to Jersey. My neighbors house is for sale and I'm looking after another one until it sells. I can talk to the realtor and get you a good deal, and I'll give you a cut when I win.

Jersey isn't as bad as they say. I live a 2 minute walk from a road made in 1780 by revolutionary war troops. We have lots of historic sites, and George Washington slept everywhere. Being president must have made him tired, I know at least 10 places that say he slept there.

We also only have 2 seasons, hot and cold. Hot in the summer and cold in the winter, but for variety they sometimes switch. Last summer it got down to 35 in July and 2 days ago it was 70.

The winners always say the money won't change them, but it always does.

I just want the chance to prove them wrong.
