In 4 states you can remain anonmous. The rest your name and home town is given.  You can claim as an enitity. A trust , LLC , partnership. I think this is legal for all states.

I concur.

    The "new" Powerball was to supposed to produce the biggest jackpots, so far it has produced smaller jackpots but more winners!

    I only play PB and MM, they offer the most fun for me .......... moving to a red state when I win .............

    Smaller jackpots but more winners... I'm all for that.

              I seen him on TLCML, but I don't remember too much about the episode. I do remember him saying he came home and there was safe on his doorstep with a letter saying, "Put all your money into this safe." He said he and his family moved right away.


              Take the lump sum. Don't hand out money like bottles of water! Don't make bad business decisions. We hear stories like this all the time. When will people learn? I know I probably should not compare personal items to millions, but here it goes. I don't let people borrow my stuff left and right, so you want get too much of my money either. You're barking up the wrong tree. Yes, there are family members and close friends I'm going to help, but it won't get out of hand. I know things are easier said than done,  but <snip>.

                   Take it one step farther , called a confidentiality agreement , to family , friends or whoever you

                    give money too . "LLC" another way for others, not to know who you're through your lawyer.

                     If you've a "good lawyer who's really looking after you " he will do whatever possible to protect

                      you . 

                        This is why , Lottery Winners needs to take there time and make sure everything is completed.

                       Winning any amount of money should keep quiet .  Why Illinois doesn't have it like MD , Delware,

                       Kansas , to protect there privacy is beyond me

                        There's families in Oregon , New Mexico , and many other states who won Million of Dollars , and

                         they  aren't in the media , as much as the others .   One lottery winner , said they only spent $4

                         million ,  brought  land , had a home built , that's about it , still driving the same ole vehicles .

                          One older couple lives in a new home and still clip coupons . There's many other winners keeping

                         a low profile .....

                  He may as well spend the last dime; he can't take any of it with him, and at least half of what he leaves behind would be stolen for "estate taxes". Dead

                  That's another way to look at it. The ticket cost $1 and if he still has $2, he is still ahead.
