Probably you have to visit several banks. However, note that the limit is per account. If you have a spouse or a child that you trust, you could have one account for yourself, one for you and spouse, one for you and child, etc. Or, you can have a savings account and a checking account. Then you can go to a different bank and play the same thing.
Of course you could use a money market fund; these are not insured by FDIC at all, but those mutual fund companies would turn themselves inside out if necessary to avoid the stigma of having "broken the buck"--had a share price other than $1 a share!
Congratulations on your windfall! Chris
