Winners are anonymous in sweden if they choose to. When you win big and have played in store you dont need to go to the store first to claim. Of course some people do this because they want to check tickets in store, in that case the store owner at least know who the winner is. But they are not allowed to reveal who the winner is. Jackpot winners will recieve a phone call from an employe at Svenska Spel when they win and if they have cell phone numbers registered online.

Anonymity aspect is great...but  that registering to purchase card ??? ehhhhhh, I don't want any government agency knowing how much I spend a year or keeping track of my lottery purchases....but on a positive side, that sure does ensure ownership, especially if they contact you on a win... Is that contacting done on any winning amount or just on a larger monetary win ?

        In the late 70's I had a similar - small change - event happen.

         Dunkin Donuts had a scratch off game you needed 2 tickets to win any amount.

          I had a 1000.00 half, the asst manager at work Wayne the other.  Wayne you go get the cash for us, I trust you.

          Days later He told me ticket was not a match, but his brother was in the paper for winning DD 1000.00 Prize.

         Wayne had all new living room furniture when I stopped by. I'd set him up with his future wife as well.

         I didn't get violent or angry as others suggested, I waited and watched for the bigger answer.

         Wayne died of leukemia unknown to all months later. That pittance and a wife made his short life happy.

         Any amount of Money makes even "nice" people crazy.

         So don't forget to look for the big picture in everything.

        It's a good thing it was only for $1,000.

        What about if it was McDonald's Monopoly game?

        ie: You had Boardwalk and he had Park Place and the prize was $1,000,000?

          I might be predjudice now but I have never understood those that want to keep hidden from the government their money. Do you keep all your cash in the wallet? Do you even have a bank account/credit card? And if you win how on earth would you get $300 million and not put them in a bank account? 

          Numbers are roughly translated from swedish krona:

          All winnings below $125.000 are transfered directy to your player account.

          Winnings from $125.000 to $600.000 are transfered to your bank account after you have been contacted by a representative at Svenska Spel.

          If you win more than 5.000.000 Kr or about $600.000 you will be invited to a meeting with Svenska spel and the bank that pay out the win.

          And I forgot to mention that all winning in Sweden is taxfree.

          Return of Lotto Investment, ROI: ROI 2020: 31% | 2019: 39% | 2018 50% | 2017 47% | 2016 12,6% | 2015 20% | 2014 20%

              Oh yes on the bank account... a local credit union and most folks have a CC in this country. Always have cash on hand and keep some hidden. BUT with $300 Million,it would be a wire transfer into your own established account.................Gotta like that tax free stuff  Thumbs Up

                "she only wrote his name on the ticket for "Good Luck""

                It must have worked!

                What is the Cost of Good Luck?

                Half of 1.2 Million!

                Yea, that is just not credible on her part. A court will just keep the split 50/50 solely do to his name being on the ticket. So we are addressing our signature law area  again due to different facts which is good. Do not let anyone else sign your ticket unless you plan on giving them 50%. And 3 names will mean a third each.

                    I am so glad you actually commented on this.  You say you're a lawyer, correct.   Because I am going to talk to a couple of lawyers myself. 

                     

                    If this does get taken to court,   they might as well say goodbye to that money.  Is it he said vs she said?   Is it her word against his now?  Hey, he could actually take that money and hide it some place.   So,  she can't do anything then.

                    Anyone can beat my price,  no one can beat my value.

                      $300k is the amt with taxes taken out.  It's still good, however, it's not worth the courts.   I would seriously hide as much money and no joke find a relative I could trust.

                        She loses anyway you look at it.Common sense should prevail, despite what she or this lawyer * thinks.She said " she signed his name"- she was not forced too. She ought to have read the rules before putting pen to paper.The other thing is, she stood for the photo shoot w/ her nephew. Whether she was ticked with him at the time or not, her standing there shows she "accepted" the results.

                        * Years ago in this neck of the woods, this gal hands a winning lottery ticket to a "complete stranger" by mistake*`she says in a convenient & walks out. She finds out later about her error, and even had the store pull footage of the handoff. They tracked this guy down when he went to claim, but given that the footage showed no coercion, she lost- live with it lady.

                            noise-gate, I believe that you are talking about Emily Leach. May she rest in peace. Emily had surgery on her pancreas and was in debt by $300,000.00 afterward. Her $1,000,000.00 win before taxes paid off that debt. 

                             No one knows why she handed out $100.00 bills to complete strangers. Then she gave two men some lottery tickets. One man won $650,000.00 before taxes. Emily filed a request with the Lottery to share the prize. Her share would have been less than $200,000.00 A lawyer would not have taken this case, I believe.

                             Emily worked at the Veterans Administration in Menlo Park, CA at the time. Her last few years were not good for her health. 

                             Do not confuse Emily Leach with Julie Leach of Flint, Michigan. Julie and her family are most likely doing very well. Julie has stayed out of the police blotters and media. Julie gave a very good media availability with Scott Bowen the Host from the Michigan lottery.

                              I was sympathetic to the woman jp winner who did not know she could claim via a trust and signed her name to the ticket  and expected her to win in court. But I have zero sympathy in this case. A ticket is personal property so why place/add another name on it? I don't see that as some sort of  nuanced legal issue as in the trust case. However, the fact that she was standing with him and appeared to accept the results is not relevant.  She did not wait months to change her mind and she clearly looks angry in the photo and is not standing close to her relative. She does have a right to sue but winning is another matter.

                              Since that case decision, I noticed the DC lottery changed their website and is telling everyone to sign their tickets. This is odd since DC does not address whether one can claim via a trust and a jp winner used a trust in 2009.
