      Nope, not required in this state.  It doesn't say that on the back of tickets, plus Brad Duke didn't do one.  He ducked the local press when he claimed his prize, and did all his press on national shows without the Idaho Lottery involved.

      Excuse my ignorance, but who is Brad Duke?  I'm guessing he was some lottery winner from the past?

          Good/funny story.  Thanks for posting that link.  I can't believe he would have brought the winning ticket to a gas station to verify it and then the woman almost forgot to give it back to him.  I mean seriously if I had any inkling that I might have a 200+ million dollar winning ticket in my possesion...no one and I mean no one would touch that except for the lottery officials at the headquarters.

            I Agree!  Except honesty isn't the only important quality to look for when investing your money.  Nobody has a crystal ball.  I doubt if every financial planner who suggested a client invest in Enron or Worldcom was a crook. 

             

            My first choice would be Massage Therapist.  Just stay away from anyone who practices hypnotism.

              Well, I kinda doubt that story.  After he claimed the prize, he ducked local reporters.  Not only did he refuse a press conference, but he had some people out front of the lottery office to distract reporters while he left in a car waiting out the back door so they couldn't even get photographs of him.   So instead, the media got ahold of the security tape of when he got the ticket checked, and I don't remember see any girl whirling around with the ticket. 

              Also, I think I've heard people here saying he's putting together his system for winning which he plans on selling.   Well, this story says he won from numbers he'd been playing for 4 years, which I remember as being the story told locally too.  So if, in fact, he does try to sell a system, I hope everyone remembers this and understands that he's just trying to scam fellow lottery players into getting him to his goal of being a billionaire. 

              When he first ducked reporters here, we all thought he was just trying to be as anonymous as possible.  Then the very next morning he started showing up on national TV, so we figured this was probably part of his plan to get his billion dollars.  Maybe he thought they'd pay him for appearances if he wasn't overexposed locally.

                Lilly, to give a serious answer, I would probably speak to my bank manager to talk about different ways of depositing the money, depending on the size of the jackpot.  People often think that $100,000 is the maximum people put in any one bank, but that's not true.  You can always sit down with a financial planner after the excitement wears off and you have time to research his suggestions, unless you have complete faith in him.  An attorney might be able to advise on a trust and how to claim it, but the most important thing is to get the money!  I wrote on another thread that any ticket that sits in a safe deposit box without earning a dime of interest while you're making plans, is losing money..lots of it.  You can always juggle it around later.

                  LuckyLilly, in the OP:

                   

                  "Other than a psychiatrist.  That's a given.  Crazy

                   

                  I'm gearing up to win the Powerball before July is ended."

                  Too late? Maybe LucktLilly posted the OP after having seen a hypnotist!

                  Scared

                  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.
