It's never too late to make the most out of life, especially when $177 million is dropped in your lap.

For example, a  71-year-old man has claimed the largest lottery jackpot in Arkansas history at $177 million. That life changing amount of money would have most looking for immediate spending opportunities, but not in this case.

The family plans on keeping things simple with their winnings. The man's son says that they plan on doing some traveling and using a portion to rebuild their home church.
