CHOICE A:  Winning the jackpot in an "anonymous" state where you MUST walk into the lottery headquarters to claim prize (DE, ND, KS, SC, MD)

 


CHOICE B:  Winning the jackpot in an "anonymous" state whereas you can send a "trustee" (such as a tax attorney) to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize through a trust or foundation (OH, NH, LA, OK)

 

Which choice would you prefer and why?

Smart lottery winners form trust to claim their winnings.  They send an attorney to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize in trust, so that ONLY the name of the trust is revealed.  And they tell NO ONE, especially relatives.

If you ever win a lottery and you are single, the only person you should ever marry is someone who was truly in love with you BEFORE you won the jackpot!

    i voted choice A because if im in an anonymous state it wont matter if i show up or not because they wont print my name and they wont take any pictures of me. if the press is there then the lottery workers can sneak me out the back.

        I Agree!

        Of course I would always prefer to take the money and hide, but if I win the $33 million FL jackpot Sat night and they tell me I have to run naked down the main street in town yelling "I won, I won, I won!!  I'll do it.  So what if the tellers at the bank will be pointing & snickering?  At least I'll be very rich.

              My vote was B, simply because of the jackpot was big enough the media might have someone stakingf out the lottery office to see who comes to claim their prize anonymously!

              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.

                    Choice B. Controlling the money via a trust or foundation is the best way to go. The super rich do this all the time. Nelson Rockefeller didn't "OWN" much of anything, but he "Controlled" vast amounts of a lot of things.

                          Justxploring, just make sure the press does not get a clip of you.  You will be forever remember in the lottery annals as the winner who ran naked in the streets!  You just know they will be hounding you to get a piece of the money.  You will never be able to hide again.  LOL!Jester Laugh

                              The tabloids - I think this one was the Weekly World News- once ran a story thatjackpot winners had some kind of orange drink before they played their tickets.... after that story ran, coenvenience stores started selling a lot more orange drinks.

                              Now because of this thread, people will misinterpret it andwe'll see a story -

                              Floridians show up naked to play lotto!

                              A Florida woman calling herself Ms Xploring said that.....
