I see Calif is using a graduated annuity for SuperLotto. Does anyone know if this has always been the case?

    "He may have to change his number even if he didn't win."

     

    That's right, change his number and move, seems logical.  Posting his info here won't help anyone find him.  It's already ancient history.

      Yes, or cash value.  It used to be 20 yrs, it is now 26 yrs.  Until recently, you had to choose cash value or annual payments when you made out the playslip.  Now you choose after you win.

        Ohhhh Nooooo JXP...

        Don't let CASH hear you say that..    Just kidding....

        I also agree about the home address and phone number.

        The information age we live in is good, but at the same time it scares the bejeezus out of me.

        ...DD

         

        Speaking of that...I googled my name and it came up. You can run but ya can't hide!  So watch what you say and where you say it!!  Big Brother is watching.

         

        I wonder how many calls this guy has gotten about winning the lottery so far? He may have to change his number even if he didn't win.  Wizeguy

        I just thought of that song "Jenny Jenny Who Can I Turn To?" and remember reading that everyone with the tel no 867-5309 went nuts when that song came out.

          I hope Roberts take cash value while he doesn't appear. I hope he doesn't have financial problems later in life.

            Thanks for the info CalifDude. I looked at the state's website but could only find the change about making decisions at time of play. I have only looked at a few state websites but of them California's was the most informative.

              Even though the lottery is random, buying tickets in a store which sold a winning ticket seems like a waste of time. How big is the chance of this store to sell another winning ticket? It must be very low, though it probably has happened before.

              Soon someone will say I am using a logical fallacy since the lottery is random...

              People begin to buy from the store sold winning tickets because they think that sellers of that store could bring luck to them.

              This had happened to me before. In my country, the bingo game is called Lotto. The way it is played different a bit - no letter, only number from 1 to 90, caller take turn within players. However, some callersBig Grin Angel help me bingo all the time. It just happened that a certain person calling the numbers, then I won. One time, it only took about fifteen numbers called; I won. Some players was jealous of my luck.

               

              Now I don't have that luck anymore. But I hope luck will come back to me soon. White Bounce

               

              CALIFDUDE What is unlisted phone number? will people find out cell phone number?

              And what is the best strategy to remain low profile when winning the lottery jackpot?

                    Why did the lottery announce his name? There should be a law against it. In the UK and Australia, if a lottery winner wishes to remain anonymous, he or she can, it's not a problem and most do. It's very unusual for lottery winners in Australian to go public.

                        >"This is kind of a different situation for us, a very strange situation" spokeswoman Catherine Doyle Johnston said with a sigh while relaying the news.

                        Not so strange, because there is nothing to be gained for most people from announcing you've won millions. You have the money whether or not you publicly announce yourself and you can't gain anything more by doing so - the only real result is letting beggars and weirdos know what you look like and what town you live in and making your life even more surreal.
