Watch it hit in Albany, NY....and it'll be the guy that didn't play in the Mega Millions pool!

Scared

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

      I don't understand why they  to have a press conference.this will be another media circus.they shouldn't have said anything and let the atty form a trust and cash it in.the lottery commission gives us the b.s. that the reason they do interviews and publish names is to show the public that real people play and win the lottery.okayyyyyyy.

          New York is one of those states that requires the dog and pony show.  Even if they all formed trusts to handle the money, I think they would have to show up at the press conference themselves.  I've never heard of a representative being allowed to conduct it in the winner's place here in NY.  Perhaps that's why some people wait so long to redeem their tickets; they figure the hype and excitement over their win will have subsided and their press conference won't get as much attention as it would have had they come forward right away.
