    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.

    SmileyYou are kidding about having a lot brothers but i actually do have 10 brothers.

        My mother just said Lotto is for Loser and Lazy people after seeing the Mega Million ad on TV. I am dying to see her reaction when I hold the winning ticket in front of her face.

            I would consult with an attorney anonymously first. Go over the facts and what I truly want to do with this money (my objectives).  Ideally, I would like to not tell anyone, not because I don't want to share, I just don't want too many people to know.

            Once this is done, I would (at the advice of counsel) let my parents and brother in on the news (they would have to sign confidentiality agreements).  As far as my children, nephews....they would benefit in some way, but they would not know.  I would not want them to grow up spoiled, feeling entitled or that they have money that can buy their way through life....The best thing about it is that they will face struggles and learning experiences that will teach them to be better people, and I will feel good to know that there is "safety net" that will help them when the time comes.

            If one wants to study to be a doctor or a welder, or enter religious life, or be a writer there is a way that would enable them to pursue that path.

            My biggest fear is if my children and nephews find out, they get spoiled and have no will or desire to pursue what will make them better people.

                If your talking about a very large win..... the kind that puts your face on TV after you claim your prize then it's a mute point.

                 

                But if you won several hundred thousand then"No" I would not tell anyone outside of my spouse.

                  My dad is 81, and he would love to know, but he'd only blow most of the money on strip clubs. I'd tell him anyways cause it's his money and he can do whatever he wants to.

                  My older sister would hurt herself If I told her. She loves food too much and always wanted to do Pole Vaulting. I have to think about that one.

                    Been there, done that. I learned the hard way 4 years ago. I responded to a thread of hers and wrote Janet, instaed of Tenaj. She was pissed.

                    Six days later, I got a knock on the door. There were 5 guys making believe they were from the Jehova's witness protection program. I didn't fall for it, but it was too late. I got my behind whipped.

                    What up Tenaj? ........Big Grin

                        most of my family dont want me playing lottery...If i was to tell them that i knew how to win the lottery they will not believe me...Is only like 1 or 2 that would believe me...To many people in the world it will not surprise me if it was half this world who believe that the lotto is GAMBLING IS TAKING YOUR MONEY AWAY and that the house NEVER LOSES which is true all i am saying if you went to people out there many will not believe you...There is religion also...

                        The Forex trades: 1.6 Trillion dollars EVERY day, that´s more than the GDP of the Carribbean Central America, COMBINED. Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨
