You win a jackpot, it's in a non-anonymous state, and you have to appear at a press conference.

But (just for fun), you can come disguised.

What's your disguise?  Masks are allowed but think of one with masks not allowed, too.

Have fun.

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

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.

    Since when my wife and I do go out were basically dress as we use to in our Punk and Goth Days.... us dressing normal would be wearing a disguise..lol

    quite different from the way we now dress on the farm on a daily basis.....  pretty hard to wear frock coats and pointy boots when cleaning a sheep pen lol

     

    But I think if I was going in disguise I would either dress redneckish or hiphopish and totally play into either character......              redneck I would be all about not changing and keeping my job and hiphopish I would be all about bling bling and livin' large..... either way it would p*ss off those at home who didn't win.... can't please everyone or anyone when you in the lottery

    You live a life of abundance! You have won the lottery! Belief creates reality! Believe!

      In Oregon their is no anonymity for lottery winners.  But you do have the right to refuse the press conference.  The lottery only has to reveal the location of the win and the winners name.-weshar75

          Count Dracula

          cause he dress's to a "T" and looks good while being a bad guy. Although, if I had blue eyes, I wouldn't  mind trying to look like John Travolta. Unfortunantely, according to a few of my coworkers, I look more like the older fat Elvis.

          Oh well, have fun folks

                  I would appear as myself, that way they will assume it is a disguise, and forget about it.

                    I'd spend a good amount of money looking like the caveman in those Geico commercials.

                    The first thing I would say is..."It's so easy, even a caveman can win"...lol

                      Y'know how everybody's always talking about how winners should be allowed to remain anonymous no matter where they live? 

                      Anybody brave enough to take a bullet for the cause?  Evil Looking

                      Show up without having showered, shaved, brushed your teeth, or combed your hair for a week.  Wear the same clothes you slept in which should be dirty.  Spit chaw every 5 seconds, have bad aim and occasionally and hit a lottery official.  No matter what question the press asks you, tell them what rotten SOBs the lottery officials are, how they're rude, condescending, and treat you like crap.  Accuse them of everything you can get away with without being sued.   Do your research, and if there's a lottery official who worked in another capacity for the local or state govt, confront him/her about how bad of a job they did, how they're the cause of the entire state going to hell in a handbasket.  When the press asks particularly inane questions, yell at them, ask why they're not doing something important like working for world peace or exposing all the graft and corruption in this &*@ state.  In other words, just make the entire news conference an absolute nightmare for them.

                      Think they'd get gunshy after the 2nd or 3rd winner who did that, and decide requiring the winner be identified isn't such a great idea?  Prolly not, huh.  Razz

                        I've often said that if I win and have to do a press conference I'd tell the press something "colorful" everytime they ask a question. Start with something like "none of your business" and work up from there. Let's see how far before they cut it.

                            Excellent!

                            OK, I ws thinking, whatever you are, how ever you normally dress, go opposite. If you hate the Yankes, wear a Yankee hat. If you're normally grunge, get all dressed up, and vice versa.

                            Do that so people who know you that saw "the guy" or "the girl" up there with the lotto officals being handed the big promo check would say, "Naw, that wasn't him (or her). They'd never wear a Yankee hat, that's for sure".

                            Wink

                            PS

                            Maybe even do something liike hire a Hollywood make up and wardrboe artist to make you look just like Hillary Clinton or edwards, so when they ask for campaign contributioins, even their own supporters would be thinking, "Yeah, right, they win $ _ _ _  million and still want campaign contributions."

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