I prob won't play... I have given up on PB after playing for 3 years due to the recent matrix change. I'm focused on my state game.  Good luck everyone.

        So you want to preserve your health after winning the lottery by remaining anonymous.  Ok.  Your health and safety really means that much to you right?

        Then why do you keep eating meat, fish, eggs, butter, and cows milk which will surely cause heart attacks, strokes, blood clots, cancer, and diabetes?

        Think about it.  I win the lottery and give a press conference and stay vegan.  You don't win the lottery and keeping eating those animal products.  Who is morely likely to suffer pain?

        Glad you see the light.  Eat beans, rice, potatoes, green salads, nuts, seeds, and water.  Thank you.

        P.S.  I play every Mega Millions draw for a buck.  I don't play powerball anymore since they ignorantly went to $2 a play.  I make an exception when it gets this high.  I bought one today.  Lets see if we can steal one after all the regulars ran it up!  Cheers!Big Grin

          This has me wondering who called the news on Gloria Mackenzie?

          They didn't participate in the press conference, didn't answer any questions, but were followed in the parking lot.

          Is there a write up somewhere were the Florida Lottery Comission apologizes for mishandling her claim?

          I don't know about Gloria, but I do know the Idaho Lottery often announces on their Facebook page that there's a 100K winner in the lobby right now.  I wonder if the Florida Lottery tweets or facebooks it too?

          Florida and Idaho are not anonymous states.  I don't think they consider it mishandling anything to announce it to the world that the winner is there. 

          When Brad Duke won here, they said he ducked out the back door and dashed to the car to try to avoid the media.  That was before social media was big, IIRC.  So how the local TV/newspaper media knew he was there, I don't know.  He went on a national news program the next day, so I guess he decided he couldn't beat 'em so he might as well participate.

            LOL I dashed off to see for myself, and thought you were rickrolling us when the powerball.com was still at 400M.

                California has also posted a $450M PB jackpot and other websites are doing the same.  Even USAMega has posted $450M now.

                    If a Billion is reached, how about a Trust claiming the win with multiple members in that trust that YOU invite in (trusted friends and family that are worthy).  Their names will probably be publicized but it'll dilute the idea that one person has all that money (unless you live in a state that allows Blind Trusts where nobody's name gets released to the public).  Members of the Trust sign a nondisclosure/confidentiality form and you decide how much to allocate to each member.  For example, give them $1 million each.  I can think of a dozen people I know that I would consider placing into this kind of Trust.

                    Be careful about this sort of thing. If you do it wrong, you and your friends and family could get a nasty surprise from the IRS. To avoid having them interpret it as a bunch of very large taxable gifts, you'll probably need to form the trust and transfer the ticket to it before the drawing.

                      If I won and couldn't stay anonymous I'd not aid in painting a bullseye on myself. Claim, vanish, change your name and hope for the best.
