Oh no, not in Ohio!  If I'm not going to win it myself, I'd at least like to be able to find out a little about the winner(s).  They can remain anonymous in Ohio!  I know, I know, I probably shouldn't care, but curious people like to know!

Well, Trained2beRich, I guess neither of us need to worry about sharing our great wealth this time.  I, too, only won two dollars today.  It sounds as though you have quite a family!  I may have had just as large a family, but I'm likely a lot older than you.  Many of my relatives are no longer with us.  And I didn't even count the one surviving aunt nor any of my cousins.  I haven't had contact with most of my surviving cousins for years, and doubt that I'd hear from them.  (Since I have a post office box and unpublished phone number, they probably couldn't find me if they tried.)

The only cousins I do have occasional contact with are in their 80s and wouldn't ask for anything.  But I would want to share any large amount I might win with my stepchildren, my siblings, my late husband's siblings and with neices and nephews.  I also realize that as a "senior" myself, I no longer have the desire for a big house, fancy car, foreign travel, etc. that most younger people have, so I just wouldn't expect to spend that much on myself.  Therefore, I'd obviously have more for others if I did win something big.  But I can understand those of you who are younger wanting more for yourself and your immediate family.  Been there, done that.

Well, good luck to you, Trained2beRich, and to everyone else on Lottery Post in the next go around.   We won't give up yet.

    Let's just hope that the winner will remain anonymous by forming a trust!!!

    Smart lottery winners form trust to claim their winnings.  They send an attorney to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize in trust, so that ONLY the name of the trust is revealed.  And they tell NO ONE, especially relatives.

    If you ever win a lottery and you are single, the only person you should ever marry is someone who was truly in love with you BEFORE you won the jackpot!

      Uff Da!
         You put things in perspective for me. I really don't need much to live on. I live in a small condo i like, I am 36, single not likely to get married, no kids. BTW i realizes my prize winning is $4dollars because in Texas you can megaply. Our texas lotto is $30 milion and out Texas Two Step is now $2.45 million(this is huge considering that it resets at $200k). The two step is the one I would like to win...this prize would allow me to pay of my condo, credit card debt & student loan...and this would allow me to go back to school and get a masters at the local school, when I get my masters I could move(or stay) to another city of my choice without much concern for basic housing. I really dont want a yard to avoid maintenance....just a condo with a terrace and a view..
