          Seems like a dumb PR move that the Ireland Lottery went public with this info, especially since the winner has yet to come forward to claim the jackpot.

            Right, CA does it all the time on things like tax refunds and light bills.

              They will be given the standard "Winner Advice" booklet and DVD, which includes advice on security, dealing with charities, etc.

               

              We need a Lottery Post DVD and Booklet version of this!

              There has been great advice on the forums on how to deal with winning big jackpots, when it comes to

              security, lawyers and relatives etc..

               

              I think all U.S. lotteries should have this available for jackpot winners.

              Write your congressman.

                  I Agree! Ditto. Completely fell for it. This isn't a story. A story would be if the winner had to wait a year for them to scramble to come up with the funds. For the winner to be able to walk into the office next week and get the money then is still much much faster than our 2 big lottery systems. This is nothing but a bogus attention grabber and it's insulting to the Irish. No No Shame

                  I think you are BS Ted. Who made you the rule maker as to what qualifies as a story? It was posted as a story so that makes it a story. I didnt have any trouble conprehending it on the first read. Or perhaps you didnt read it the first time and just assumed what the meaning of the title was??? Try and get a grip next time Ted.

                           I heard ( not sure if it's true ) if the jackpots "in the hundreds of millions "     example $400 million or more ,it's possible you will get couple in deposits , different times . 

                           Or do you receive ENTIRE amount the next  day after you turn your ticket in ???? 

                             Does anyone know the Real Answer to this question ........

                           

                      Direct deposit as soon as all the paperwork is done.

                          I guess that is still good the winner will have ample time to plan with regards to her winnings. Having low profile will avoid too much attention therefore they will not put themselves in unnecessary risk. There might be people who will take advantage of them because of their huge jackpot price.
