      I would let my mom and dad know. But I am thinking if I should let my mom know since he have a big mouth.

        That would be tough, I'm the oldest of 6 and my hubby is the baby of 8. If we told just one person it would get through each family faster than a jet plane.

          One mouth can spread it like a wild forest fire. I would just keep my mouth shut for the first 2 months and brain storm on how I should handle the money. I play with my dad time to time so if I win with him, I'll be just between me and him.

            I Wouldn't Tell Them .. But If They Needed Something I Would Drop Money Off Anonymously! :)

                I'm going to live in the middle of nowhere, just count my money and hide from everybody!

                Why have money if you can't get out and enjoy it?

                Everybody will know anyway!

                  I actullay thought about this before, I think the only people i would tell would be my mom and dad. I have 2 brothers and one sister and if i told any of them the news would be all over town that day. My parents would respect my wish to keep a low profile. Helping my parents would be one of my priorities, after a major win!!

                    I'd probably tell my brothers Clyde, Buford, Verdell, Bubba, JimBob, Junior, Eustus, Malachi, Ferlin, Zebediah and Pee-Air but not my brothers LaMule, Festus, Clerow, LeeRoy, Delmont, Sylvester, Clem or my sister Birmingham (Hog Chops). They can't keep they mouth shut for nothin.

                      Even your parents?

                      No, I wouldn't keep my win a secret from my family. They would know and I wouldn't hide it from them.

                        Yes, 

                        I am not one of the lucky people who could win a lotto and NOT have to worry about family members.  So as I've said before,  No one except my husband will know.  They don't know that I play so there's no fear of lawsuit and such.

                        I plan to help my family but keep the source of the money to myself. 

                        It'll go something like this..... "Here's a little someone for you, I came into a bit of money  so I want to help you out a bit." don't ask where it came from, how much I  GOT ( I won't say WON) or ask me for more money later on... talk to you soon, bye."

                              When I win, I really don't *WANT* to tell any family members....but, I am VERY VERY close with my parents, so I think they will figure out *something* is up!
