    No!  Think of all the members that would PM you or post comments in your blog or just post period.  Keep it on the down low.-weshar75

      What weshar75 said, times 10, and then some.

       Not in any way, shape or form should you broadcast anything about winning millions, especially anywhere on on the internet!

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      Lep

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

          If I hit, I would definitely run out of time to post and play the lottery.  But I would let you guys and gals know.  It would be impolite to leave and not say goodbye, especially to such a great group of people. LOL jarasan. Party

            Certainly I would announce it! Why not.? This is after I give Todd proof and ask for complete blocking of PM's and change my name . Seriously. most members here WANT to feel apart of such a celebration . We each have the option to block messages or postings of members who may be less then appreciative of such a win.  I dont fear the online folks as much as I do the media and charity thumpers.

            Naturally its realistic and understanding if someone does want to stay private.

              Sure why not? I am not afraid either at all, but I would make sure my millions were protected first, and in my trust account lol.

                I would, I think it would be positive news to hear an LP member won the lottery.  I wouldn't be giving my winnings away, or giving out my phone number and address.

                  It's likely LP members would know I had won before I knew since I play all my predictions for the games in Ohio, however I wouldn't give out my e-mail address.  Before I removed my e-mail address from my profile, I used to get requests for money from all kind of people with sob stories, I think they thought any one who could afford to lose money playing the lottery should help them first.  I usually sent them an e-mail with my thoughts and that usually ended it.  I've never felt that my money would be better spent on other rather than myself or my family and I didn't mind telling them.

                      I would like to think I would share the news, but somewhat leery of posting it on the Internet.  So, not sure what I would do.  Leaning toward not posting.

                      Good Luck!

                        Sure, I'd tell everyone.

                         

                        The one thing I've learned about honesty over the years is: always be honest.

                        Because then you don't have to remember the lies, but mainly; NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE ME ANYWAY.

                          I thought this was recently a topic posted on LP.  I said that I probably would never announce it only because I've posted way too many personal thoughts on forums and blogs and suddenly my anonymity would be blown by a nosy reporter who found out that justxploring won the jackpot. Then I wrote that I would announce it if I changed my user ID but, by doing that, I would lose my credibility.  After all, if a person got on LP for the first time today and said "Guess what?  I won $10M!" we wouldn't really know if he/she was real.

                          I agree with Guesser.  Nobody would believe it anyway!  LOL  As far as being honest is concerned, I think I'm a very honest person..at least I try to be.  However, keeping personal business to yourself isn't lying, it's just protecting your privacy.

                            As much as I would like the chance to receive my 15 minutes of fame, I just could not do it for security reasons.  It would be bad enough that the Florida Lottery Commission would be aware of the win and it would be given to newspapers and other media outlets.  Also it would would not be too bad if the amount of the win was less than normal.  I think where the name recognition comes into play is when you win a very large amount of money.  I would say like $50 million or more.  Lesser amounts do not have the appeal they once did as far as the media is concerned, or if they do report it, normally  the appeal  is short lived.
