Just read a story, don't know if it is true of why a female waited so long to collect on her massive MM win in SC.  It didn't specify her age though.

What does her gender have to do with it?  Maybe you meant to say woman.

        What are the chances the jackpot is bumped?

          glad to see we can agree on somethings, Dpoly1 

          why any fool would waste $50k on a snooty bmw is beyond me, specially when thars plenty of worthy toys to be had

            That article gives an indirect slam against non-anonymity. Safety. Keep chipping away. Great job.

              That woman opened the can of worms by even agreeing to an interview, IMO.  Now that her charities are named, someone might out her that is if she does it alone versus a trust or some other safeguard for her name.

                The info was released through the law firm. Charities accept anonymous donations all the time.  I am sure a trust or several trusts were set up first. That attorney seems to know his job.

                  I have my automobile selection. It is a 2019 BMW 3 Series 330i RWD 4D Sedan for $50,000.00

                   My winning ticket will be safely inside a Bank's Safety Deposit Box while I get my ducks in a row, and let the media hysteria die down. Here in CA I have one year to claim.

                    Whoever she is apparently she wants her five minutes of fame regardless of the BScaptain obvious "know-it-all" is telling you.

                        I Agree!I Agree!.  You wait and see her name will slip out somewhere and it'll probably her running off @ the mouth.  Loose lips sink ships.

                           noise-gate, Great photo and good advice. Lottery dreaming is what most of us do when we buy a ticket. It only takes one ticket to win.

                           Why a Beamer? BMW. I am at that age where I am looking for comfort when I travel the roads and highways of California.  I want to be relaxed when I reach my destinations. 

                           As the sole jackpot winner tonight here in CA I will win $190,000,000.00 That is after all taxes are paid. Although I expect to pay more taxes on the income that will be generated by investments.

                          I will hire a Certified Financial Adviser, a CFP who will be my quarterback and help me locate the other team members. Legal, Accounting, Media relations, and more.

                          See Ya!

                            My response to you Music was not intended to disrespect. I just find you a revealing person. Meaning you upfront with what you going to do with What & where. That is not necessarily a bad thing. At times it can be good, at least for me, especially if l am  “ going for it” depending on what “ it” is. CoolOther times, it’s good to keep your cards close to your chest, so to speak. When it comes to playing and winning- that’s what dreams are made of..... According to Van Halen.

                              When I win I'll have my lawyer put out a release referring to me as a short, fat Asian woman who bought the ticket just after relocating from San Francisco specifically because none of those things is true. Hopefully that will keep the vast majority of people from ever considering that I'm the winner. Perhaps the release will also include a short list of charities that all my friends know I wouldn't give a dime to.

                              Much like the lawyer from Long Island is trying to convince people in Simpsonville that none of their neighbors won the lottery, any information I release will include the goal of pointing the spotlight away from me.
