So I have a question about claiming anonymously: isn't opening up a trust and/or limited liability company the same thing as not going public, especially if your state "requires" you to disclose public information? And does anyone know if New Jersey allows a winner to set up a trust in order to retain their privacy?

While the value of a dollar is substantial, hope is priceless. But if you ain't got a dollar, then it's hopeless.

      In the UK, lottery winners have the legal right to remain anonymous. Around 75% of lottery winners choose to remain anonymous, many of the other 25% who do not regret it later.

      We all get a lot out of lotteries!

        They should not revel their identity. They live a state that allows winners to remain anonymous, and the should take advantage of that.  I wish all states were like that.

          Just for all you skeptics out there, I will publicly state that I will TOFTT and go public when I win.  Just so you will believe that a real person won the jackpot, I will show up and have a press conference.  Just don't blame me if you "die laughing!"  It will be me, just no one will really know what I truly look like before or after the press conference. :D

          Part of me wants to that too, but it's too dangerous. A lot of folks don't believe real people win the lottery, but reveling yourself is not going to change the minds of hardcore believers. If I decide to show my face to cameras, you better bet I'm going to dress as a mascot.Cool

              Laid in bed with the hubby , I looked in his eyes and said " seeing your face reminds me of the lottery "
              With a smile he said " Because i'm worth millions to you ? "
              "NO " I Said
              "I wish you'd Roll Over "
