I think it is good for the playing public to see the real, non-lottery employee people claim the winnings.  Anyone who wins in Illinois should WANT to move after winning. I know I will, and on top of that I would go on a year long world tour.  So good luck trying to catch up to me and beg me for a handout.

BTW do real people win Publishers Clearing House? You always see the ads before prize award, but never anything about the actual rewarding of the prize. So I just trash those mailings as soon as I receive them.

Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

    Well I think if one can just take off for a year that is great but a lot of people (maybe most?)have ongoing commitments and could not do something like that in an instant.  For example if you are an artist, you may have contractual commitments two years in the future and cannot just walk away and disappear if you win the lottery. Or someone may be very active in their community and cannot just disappear. Or there are people in LP who run their own businesses and would continue to do so since they have such hard work invested into it.  Or people may have children in a school program that they love or elderly parents. And if one is willing to just drop everything they have enjoyed doing, the lottery money would be pretty worthless in my opinion.  I think as long as their is some sort of oversight (a watchdog/or an audit of the lottery) for anonymous winners, claiming the lottery anonymously benefits the most people and communities in the long run.

      Missouri here, and oh my, if you're a winner here, they'll publish your name, favorite food, favorite color, names of your pets, and give directions right to your front door.  Worst state of all 50 as far as lottery privacy goes.

      Although I truly do think it's a myth that lottery winners are bothered/harassed.  If it is true, all you need to do is ditch your phones, e-mail addys, and move to some foreign country where you can live in anonymity.

          Your fallacy is that you assume all "liberals" want the exact same thing.  Either that or you assume that since you're conservative, anyone who disagrees with you on any random issue is clearly a "liberal".  Regardless, you're off-base.

          I think you've all figured out by now that my views lean more to the left than to the right -- especially when compared to your average LP member, it seems -- but I'd love it if NY went anonymous.  So politics has nothing to do with the topic at hand.

          Neeeh MB, I have no interest in your political views or affiliations, but I am glad to see you voted in the poll. Thumbs Up

                Thank you for that.  It's good to hear that politics need not always rule the day. Cheers

                    Cuz democrats will come up with new laws to take it away from you and give it to people who vote for them as payback, like unions, welfare scammers and other democrat parasites like that.

                         In Cali you have to release your name but don't have to do the press conference.

                         Call me stupid but I will do the conference, AFTER all the money went to the nestegg and other investments.

                               Some years back, someone, reporters i think, went in the dumpster,

                           in back of publishers clearing house and found thousands of entries in there un -opened.

                           

                           you know what the envelope looks like, its got them little windows and you can tell if it has a subscription order w/out opening it.

                          one time i played a trick on em, i took the little stickers that look like the magazines,

                           and taped them inside the envelope at the window instead of on the order form so it would slip past the machine that sorts them.

                          i can picture someone at their desk opening the ones w/ orders, WTH ? how did this get in here ? LOL

                              Really? Is this a recent requirement because I have read many times on the California Lottery website where it says the winner wished to remain anonymous. The last two or three winners had only their first name and last initial listed in the media section. Why do you think it is a requirement that the winner's name has to be released?
