Thanks, Todd. I think ezmoney was smart if that's the way he/she felt. I would probably continue to play unless I won at least a million.
Anyway, I do have a question. I notice that some tickets posted show numbers circled. Is this a wise thing to do? I guess only the bar code really counts, but I thought that lottery tickets shouldn't be tampered with, including writing on them (except for signing the back) Just curious.
By the way, I was looking for information and found an old article written by a lawyer that says it's okay to sign your name, but to leave the other lines blank in case you want to claim the prize as a Trust or LLC. She wrote that signing it keeps it from being claimed if stolen, but still leaves the winner the option of adding information under his/her name. I wasn't sure about that, but her suggestion makes sense. Don't want to go too off-topic, but she also wrote that in some cases where a family member wanted to split the jackpot or give money as a gift, the IRS asked for proof that a partnership had been created prior to the ticket purchase, which I found interesting.
