Sucks even worse that most likely no one in this thread will win, and we are just padding the pockets of some stupid already rich investor who does not even need it. So all this chatter is pretty much a waste of time based on past results. I am all about being positive but coming back down to reality is a long fall. Prove me wrong lottery, and stop being so boringly predictable for once.

Mrs White won $336 Million and she wasn't a rich investor....

    I don't think there's a set amount of time for the press conference. Just have your team of attorneys to talk to the lottery commission about the details before hand. After the verification process has been completed it can take up to 3 weeks but it depends on your state.

    About 12 hours, plus all your flights to Good Morning America, Live with Kelly, Tonight Show, and every other show out there. You will be traveling about 360 days a year the first year for interviews. LOL

        If I win the jackpot on Friday, I am going to wait a year until the very last day possible to cash it in. During that time I will reflect on life and enjoy my final normal year of life, knowing that it will never be the same after I come forward as the winner. I'll decide what I want to do with the rest of my life and hopefully use my last chance as a normal person to make real friends who don't want me for my money. And then at the end of the year I will let them know, and being fully prepared I will come to collect what is mine.

        Yeah, you are going to wait a year to cash in the largest jackpot in history? Sure you will. I would be cashing in immediately as I am well prepared. I also won't be using any large legal team as they can't be trusted. The more people that know the more people will tell, and will spread like a plague. They didn't win the jackpot I did, and no one is sacring me into hiring a bunch of leeches and I am staying right where I am at also. I won't be moving far away or running from anyone. Most probably would expect that. But a win this large would not make me a fleeing coward it would make me even more powerful and stable where I am at now.

                    I hope she wins, I still have a shot at $25OK from her if she doe's. That's still big money to me.  Yes Nod

                    I don't think either of you will pay up, you will both vanish from the forums never to be heard of again. Better get a written contract. Green laugh

                      We have a safe in our home so that is where I would hide my ticket IF I were to win. Our collection of hand guns and assault rifles would keep it company. Big Grin

                      I have a safe which is a dummy safe, and the first place a robber will look. The real safe is one of those crap stained underwear ones, that is where I will keep the ticket because it is a lot safer there than in the vault. No one will ever touch it. LOL

                        Nikki,..the team aspect may consist of a trust atty, a tax atty, a corp/LLC atty...you probably don't get all-in-one with a single person....might be better to have a specialist in each section...besides, with this kind of cash ??  who really cares Green laugh
