If you sign the back of ticket, can you still claim it in a blind trust.

I don't think so... it's one of those things that prevents me from signing my tickets.

     As usual I use my dream numbers for tonight's jackpot. In my dream a few years ago John Lithgow and Willam H. Macy showed up and gave me the numbers, and told me which one the mega number was.

        Thinking between 2 to 4 jackpot winners on this one, bet each one of them plops down $20 or less for tickets.

          Once I get out today to turn in my payslip for $1 I'll have put down $4 total on this draw.

            I think it is a lot more riskier not to sign a ticket, until you sign it it's anyone's ticket. You never had to not sign a $700 or more ticket yet. Easier said than done. If something happened to it and it was not signed, imagine the feeling.

                No, the trust has to claim it. If I were to win, I would not sign my ticket but I would make copies (front/back) and place my ticket in a ziplock bag prior to locking in in my safe.

                Once I formed the trust or LLC then I would I would endorse under that name and have my attorney claim it.

                    You're right.

                    A winner that wants to go the Trust route would be best off taking a bunch of close up photos, both front and back of the ticket.

                    Then lock the ticket up in a bank safe deposit box.

                    Take the one copy of the photos and put them in an envelope addressed to yourself. Seal it and get the local post office to stamp a post mark over the sealed portion of the envelope. Store it somewhere safe.

                    Look for a attorney or law firm with a long and reputable history that specializes in Trusts and Estates. Shop around and always get a 2nd or 3rd opinion.

                    Look for several top notch finanncial advisors and plan to diversify your investments.

                    Always get your legal and finanncial ducks in a row before signing the ticket with the name of your trust.

                      Speechless! The saga continues. I have not won yet and I already can't sleep.

                      You are not alone, I thought I was the only one who couldn't sleep this week.

                          Driving to the lawyer's office with my unsigned ticket, get broadsided by a truck and knocked unconscious, paramedics arrive, see ticket in your pocket and take it, sign it and claim your money. Maybe you will win, maybe you won't, maybe you will have to split the money. There are a million alternate scenarios where things can go very wrong. 

                          No thanks, I will sign my tickets as soon as they are printed, you can do whatever you want. If I have to claim it in my name BFD. There is a hedge fund manager today that made $4 billion this year and he is walking around just fine, I think I will be okay.

                              why? because you think you are going to win a 175 million to 1 shot. also, if you win and don't tell anyone you might as well tape it to the outside of your refrigerator.
