Darn it!! I'm so sick of losing!!!

I'm not playing anymore!!!!!

I'm done!!!

I'm done!!!

Just the way I feel about it.  Just tired of checking my ticket to have NOTHING.  But I can't give up the "dream" of winning one day. No Nod

To God be the glory... 

When you're winning you're being blessed by Him!

      Hopefully whoever won it,  will put the winnings toward doing something useful or cool,  like not wasting it on a stupid bicycle,  and is not at an age where it will just end up not being used and the state ends up with the money in the end.

      the miser in washington state bought 2 top of line bicycles, but that was all he bought with his 80 million cash for 3 years. ok to buy a bicycle along with other stuff that you need or want. i'm sure that this anonoymous s.c. winner will make sure it doesn't end up with the state just because he may expire soon. there would be someone he/she could will it to before the state ends up with it.

            Since I contributed to this persons winning, my hope is that it went to ONE person claiming. Have an adversion to Group Pool wins....

            I enjoy those who say "I quit playing!",

            That is great!!

            Quit Playing ...and Start winning! :)

              News report said we probably will not know who won because South Carolina is an anonymous claim state. If true the winner just scored a second win!

                CAN I REMAIN ANONYMOUS WHEN I HIT THE JACKPOT?

                All but five states (DE, KS, MD, ND, OH) have laws that require the lottery to release the name and city of residence to anyone who asks. Other states may offer to assist you in some way, including such things as the creation of trusts. But generally, you will want to hire an attorney to review the laws in your state to see what options you might have. Photos and press conferences are up to you for most, but not all states. Check with your state lottery to see if photos or more are required. Most of the time, it is advisable to get it over with the press so that you don't have one or more reporters following you around to get that "exclusive" interview. Even if the you can keep your identity secret from the press and the public, you will have to be known to the lottery - so they can confirm that you are eligible to play and win.

                  Whew, 1 ticket wins the $399M annuity advertised Powerball jackpot!!!

                  It's been several years since a South Carolina lottery vendor sold a winning Powerball jackpot ticket! Disney

                        lejardin,

                        Yeah. I feel the same way.

                        Win$500Quick,

                        I can't find a thing on the South Carolina lottery website FAQ pages about remaining anonymous.

                        ?

                        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                        Lep

                        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                              Win$500Quick,

                              I can't find a thing on the South Carolina lottery website FAQ pages about remaining anonymous.

                              ?

                              It's on the form itself, the key is with SC that if someone does a Freedom of Information Act Request the names will still be released.  It happened in the past.  But you can claim anon and you can deny to take part in the media events, ect

                              But if the press really want to know they will find out.

                              It happened a few years ago, someone from Raleigh, NC won in South Carolina and the Raleigh press requested the info by the Freedom of Information Act because NC forces publicity or some such and since they lived in NC and that media outlet didn't think it was right they should remain anon.

                              Here's the info from the site:

                              Please Note: Players of the South Carolina Education Lottery (SCEL) have the choice of whether or not to allow the Lottery to use their names and photos to advertise their win. Winners' information may be subject to disclosure under the S.C. Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). These winners granted SCEL Claims Center Staff permission to publicize their winning experiences. Other winners who claimed their prizes at lottery retailers or who did not wish to have publicity are not featured.
