I think that the so-called "lottery curse" stems more from the people themselves than from actually winning the money. The types of people who are inclined to play the lottery on a regular basis are probably not the savviest money managers. If they were, they probably wouldn't be playing the lottery in the first place.

If regular lotto players were the savviest money managers, they wouldn't blow untold thousands on the lottery, to begin with.
