i dont know if this has been brought up before but, if you won a jackpot, could you sell your ticket to someone or a corporation? Say, if you were to recieve 75 million after lump-sum and taxes, could you sell it for 70 million and avoid the publicity, etc?
I suppose a corporation could buy lottery tickets and a CEO of some company might buy the ticket from you, probably for under $50 million but when the lottery announced who won the jackpot, the investigated reporters would show up. How long would it take them to find out that the company wrote a huge check to you?
If avoiding the publicity is that important, play the state lotto or any game that nobody cares who won?
