After the Big WinAfter the Big Win: NEW VIDEO: What happens when you win the lottery?Rating:

What would you do if you won?

By Kate Northrop

MARTINSVILLE, NJ — Every time you buy a lottery ticket, you're likely imagining the blissful "what if I win?" scenario, but let's say you DO win — are you really prepared to claim all that cash?

Lottery Post today announced the relaunch of its official YouTube channel. The very first published video features a topic that's relevant for new and seasoned players alike.

It's easy to imagine how easy life would get if you were to suddenly come across millions upon millions of dollars, but preparing to accept that cash and managing the newfound wealth are crucial aspects of winning that many players don't often consider.

WATCH: What happens when you win the lottery?

The channel's first video, "What happens when you win the lottery?," covers all the basic steps you need to know before claiming your jackpot prize. Our first recommendation? Take a deep breath and put that ticket in a safe place.

To see all of the steps we recommend, visit Lottery Post's official YouTube channel and be sure to tell us in the comments what you would do if you hit the jackpot.

1st thing I'm doing is changing my phone number and deleting my social media.  Everyone will come out the woodwork trying to get a piece.  People who treated you bad will suddenly pretend they been you're friend all along.

    I would have said signed the ticket, but my hands would probably be too shaky to do so. I am going to definitely call my mum and let her know.

          I remember one of my law professors saying the first thing you should do is change your name before you claim. I guess you can change it back after you get the money.

              Don't know her name, but she does investment stories for ABC.  Her advice to those hounds wanting money is to give them her tax accountant phone number.   He automatically says NO!!   ROFL.

                Another great media production to help promote lottery post! Well done. 

                Enjoyed the overall suggestions. Sensible. 

                I'll skip paying the middleman. I get the concept of spread the wealth since so much is there to spread. Just can't live that way...sorry financial planners . I already got the foundation on how to handle funds. Now an estate lawyer - yes siree!.

                 

                I'm all about transparency so I'll claim openly. Three big jackpot winners reside in my town. None threatened or harmed. 

                 

                Here's hoping though when lottery post has it's very own huge jackpot winner we can be doubly blessed just knowing them and cheering them on :)

                Count your smiles.

                  Good advice but I won't need it.  I'm cursed with cain't win and am forced to buy tickets in a state where no one else can win either when it comes to PB & MM.

                    This is good advice and hope the series covers in more details the pros and cons of how to claim, as well as the benefit of family foundations used to manage the wealth.  As a seasoned lottery player, I have always felt it was a matter of time before I hit the jackpot.  Good luck to my fellow lottery players and Lottery Post keep the advice videos coming!!!

                        Thank you everyone for such nice comments! It's so wonderful to hear such a warm reception to the video roll-out after the all preparation that went into it. What I really enjoy reading and find most interesting are your thoughts and opinions on the subject. That being said, we will absolutely take any suggestions into consideration for future video topics. Smiley

                          If I have won the lottery I would give back to the community to make the community a better place for kids and families without all this gun violence then I will take my family on a vacation and the rest I would take and pay off every bill I owe get up gravesite plaque for my mother and my grandmother and my brother and that's what I would use my winnings for I'm not playing to waste it I'm playing so that I can have a better life
