Does Virginia require you to wear a face diaper just to take the picture?

If you go to a NOVA office, probably since NOVA is part of the totalitarian regime.  But it might be helpful to disguising your identity a bit.

His time is up.

    C'mon mannnnnnn... You KNOW that if you win, you are going to have your pic taken with good ole Becky here at Lotto Hdqtrs.  And if you say that you won't ?...well... You're a lying-dog-faced-pony soldier !!

      Crazy thing about this game is, no one hardly ever wins the million and most times no one wins the second prize either. I always check the payout.

      That's a function of low ticket sales which means there is low "coverage" of all the possible 3.8 million combo's in a 6/40 matrix.  Players in Virginia are voting on what they think of the game with their dollars. (Or the lack of them)  I dont live in Virginia but if I did, I'd definitely play the game. G5

      Play Smart!

        I dunno if they require it or not, but I think it's smart.  Not because of the virus, but because it keeps people from easily identifying him.  All he has to do is get a haircut, and he'd be even tougher to identify. As for me, I'd be smiling underneath my mask. 

        Here's a thought. Sooner or later the pandemic will be history.  Winners could show up at Lottery HQ to collect a large prize wearing a face mask and tell the lottery folks they're afraid of the virus and cant take their mask off when their picture is taken.

        What could/would the lottery do about that, if anything?  The pandemic could have actually done a lot of big prize winners a favor.   G5

        Play Smart!

            My 4th ex-mother-in-law drove a Nova, bless her heart. I don't believe they make 'em anymore. It don't make me no never-mind no-how if folks knowed I won anyway. We got Castle Doctrine in Tennessee. It works like this here: You come and take what's mine (or try to) and I blow yer goll dang head off.

              I always wear mask in public and consider it my civic duty. There is no joy to spread covid to vulnerable people.

                I hope to see change in Virginia beginning Jan 15th.  Hopefully the new governor will get some grocery trucks in here. The area is having very serious food shortages and if the situation goes on for 2 more weeks, people will starve. 90% of the stores are empty.

                  "It is just a million after WITHHOLDING tax has been deducted"

                  That's the important point. It's not tax free and it's not after taxes. You might be able to put a full million in the bank, but you don't get to keep the full million unless you come up with some significant deductions.

                  "Federal tax due on $1,000,000 is about $334,426"

                  The federal tax due will be on the actual prize, not the million you get until you pay the rest of the taxes.

                  "For him to walk away with $1m after withholding taxes are deducted... means he has to be getting something like $1,357,000"

                  The good news is that VA seems to have ignored the federal reduction in withholding tax to 24%. The prize is apparently fixed at $1,408,451, and after deducting 25% for federal taxes and another 4% for VA taxes you'd get a check for  $1 million, plus a modest bonus of 21 cents. Potentially you could pay the top rate on the entire amount if you have other income, but as a ballpark figure the actual net would be about 850k.
