Posted: Updated:

So when you win the Powerball, there are some things you need to know before you go on the lottery spending spree of your dreams.

Experts have offered some tips for you if you're lucky enough to get the jackpot.

1. Keep quiet

Don't let anyone know you're the big winner until the cash is in your bank account.

2. Get a good lawyer

Hiring a good lawyer might be the most important thing you do when you win.

3. Get ready for the attention

Experts say all of that money will mean a lot of attention, and if you're not careful, you could lose your new found fortune just as fast as you won it.

4. Sign your ticket

When you get your ticket, experts recommend you sign it and place it somewhere safe.
