Hi everyone!!! Hope you guys enjoyed your weekend. Does anyone know if it is okay to wear a full face mask, or some other disguise like sunglasses, hats, scarfs, etc to collect the winnings of the Mega Millions or Powerball??? You know, like during the press conference. I've seen it happen overseas like in China and Israel but not here in America. When I win (God willing) I would want to stay anonymous and in my state of VA and even NC you can't claim winnings by a blind trust. Help, help, help and thanks to everyone who responds to this. God bless, TS.

    You can search LP. Several threads in the past have brought up that people have claimed their winnings that way. Search: Would you wear a disguise to your press conference

      A winner in Illinois hired make up artists to disguise her.

      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.

        Make up artist--cool.  A jackpot winning pharmacist, whose pic was posted in the pharmacy of the hospital at which I worked, claimed her prize in those half glasses, half shades that keep getting darker as the light increases, and a cheap dynel wig which makes everybody look slightly weird.  Doesn't sound like a lot, but I guarantee you--unless you already knew what this lady looked like, you would never be able to identify her outside of the press conference.

          The Illinois winner was a female pharamacist, too...or were you in Illinoois at the time?

          She said if some people knew she had won a jackpot they'd sue for malpractice, just for spite, this the disguise.

            This just reminded me of Elvira...Mistress of the Dark. Without the make-up and wig she looks totally different.

            I think I would alter the way I look but not in a funky way.......i.e. I dress very casual so if I wore business attire and heels and slicked my hair back with some dark glasses HAHA nobody would guess it was me.

            Just get me thru this so called life......

                Make-up artist idea is a good one. better than a paper bag over your head.

                Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

                For a lead role in a cage?

                  I wouldn't have that problem. People would think I'm already wearing a mask.

                      Remember last year, there was that Chinese guy who boarded a Canadian flight and he diguised himself as a Caucasian old man.  I saw a picture of the mask and it was weird and cool at the same time. LOL

                      I have to find one of those masks and dress up like a little old lady. They'll be wracking their brains looking for her. Big Smile

                            She was a back up singer at the Union Plaza in Vegas  before becoming Elvira. You're right, she looks nothing like that, she's a redhead. The Elvira look is two wigs.

                            I still think showing up for the press conference as Dr. Zaius from Planet of the Apes would be hilarious.
