Would you post a copy of the winning ticket in here for everyone to see it if you won a large jackpot

    I voted yes, but I'de probably only post it if someone really wanted to see it.

    I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

        I voted for "Yes, I would want everyone to see it" but only after I've come out to the public and claimed my prize or maybe the night before I'm going to claim it. Ofcourse I would not post the sensitive information and only the winnings numbres visible with the draw date.

        On second thought, I might not. I will make up my mind when I win.

          Only thing you would have to change would be the security strips and sequence/verification  numbers on the ticket.

              I would not post a copy/scan of the ticket.  I would not want to give any crooks or unsavory people out there anything that they might be able to use to cause trouble.

                  Do not post the ticket until after it was redeemed otherwise you may assist someone in making a fraudulent copy of the ticket.

                  Second, make sure to photocopy or scan the ticket before redeeming because the lottery prize office will keep the original ticket after redemption.

                  Good luck,
                  Jake

                    Just black-out the number codes at the bottom of the ticket on the scanned image, and that eliminates any possibility of someone trying something underhanded.

                      No, there would be no need to do that.  A Jackpot Winners life will already be complicated enough, there is no need to frustrate myself.

                          Yes, it could be claimed in the trust. But the trustees name would appear in the story, unless u trust your lawyer who could claim it for you as a trustee. I hope I am getting this right. Read this story http://www.powerball.com/powerball/winners/2004/020404nh.shtm. Thomas J. Van Meer could have been the winner himself. We will never know.

                            I will use a trust myself to claim my jackpot when I win.  However, not all states will allow you to claim it in trust.  Please keep in mind a few factors.  Powerball and Megamillions are played in different states.  Not all states will respect and allow you to remain anonymous. If a person can claim it in a trust I suggest that they go that route.  There are too many people who would literally make your life miserable if they could by imposing themselves on you and your family for money.  Also, take into account that its not just you that you must safeguard against unwanted attention, but also, people will try to get at your winnings through family members.  Their personal relationships will also be challenged and tested.
