Wow, for $1, those two second prize California winners walked away with a lot more than those in the other states!

          Some states don't require a news conference, they just require that they make your identity public. Gloria never gave a news conference but they tried to spring one on her. Called the press while she was there filling out paperwork.

            Well the Georgia winner has already come forward to claim her money. I give her 5 years tops.

            I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

            The odds are about the same.

                Well, I wouldn't say it takes 6 months, but it sure takes longer than 16 hours. Unless she has a lawyer and/or financial planner already lined up, her hotel room booked somewhere to stay until the furor dies down, and she's gotten a PO Box and changed her phone number between the win and now, she's not going to keep that money very long. She'll go the way of Abraham Shakespeare or Jack Whittaker. I'm not seeing how she could have everything planned and set up in 16 hours.

                I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

                    I Agree!

                    Unless she has already worked out an arrangement with a bank it will be several weeks before her account gets funded. In the meantime, she will be hounded by friends, strangers and many others looking for a handout.

                        Surely she knows that it takes about 2 weeks for the lottery to collect the money

                        If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
                        If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

                          Congratulations!!! it's very nice to here we had two Lucky Blessed Winners for the Big Jackpot...I just pray they will use their winnings in a manner that's pleasing to The Lord.....I truly feel like if they will follow this path they want wind up like so many others I've heard of in the past that would wind up completely broke with-in only a few years....such stories as this are very sad to hear about causing so many Broken Hearts.

                            Just like she should know to have things organized and have her ducks in a row before claiming. But here she is. Lottery winners 'should' know a whole lot of stuff they don't actually know. And that's usually why they end up bankrupt inside of 5 years.
