How can someone with 7 million dollars really be that stupid ?

If he won the 38.9 Million Dollars alone, the value of the prize is maybe 10 Million Dollars ( when you deduct taxes and adjust for the time value of money )

Therfore he would be risking 7 million to win 3 million on a 50/50 bet. If there was another winner with which he would have to split, he would not even get back 7 million dollars in value.
