Whoever hit Lose for Life in KY will wish it had a cash option. And they didn't win enough to retire.

    I'd only tell a couple people first, maybe Todd, my co-workers, and my family.  Then I would claim the money.  I probably wouldn't do too much with the money until tax time.  I don't want to wind up spending a ton of money and then finding out that I owe the government a ton in taxes.

    I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

      I don't plan to tell anyone anywhere anything!  When people know you've had a windfall, they'll all want a cut of it.  Most of the people here probably wouldn't give that sort of trouble, but who knows, maybe a lurker who isn't a member or someone a member might let it slip to could cause trouble.

      The only ones who'll know if I win are me and my wife.  I also have a plan to keep others from knowing, such as holding off on big decisions such as big purchases, quitting work, etc., until after the excitement of a locally sold ticket winning dies down.  I also plan to move, preferably to somewhere nobody knows us, if my wife will go along with that.

      Even after a big win, I'll probably still play the lottery and check in here every so often.  I just like coming to this board to chat!

        Setting up a blind trust to collect the money. Continue to post and play here as usual. Bottom line. Keep quiet!

          I'd come off like I'm the most stingy S.o.B. on the planet. I'd show the ticket here after I claimed it. The people that would be likely to try to claim it probably aren't on this board. And, I'd help the few people that were there for me when I was still poor. Whatever system I used if any, I would then freely share such system because I'd mostly quit playing. NOTE: most jackpot winners aren't shown nation-wide on TV, only when it's a very high amount.

              If I win a jackpot, I would post my numbers in the game I played for real to LP members. That's my vote on this question.
