I always wondered if the lottery winner gets to keep the large check that they pose with?

    Great question kyok!

    As it is merely a prop, the winner(s), have a choice of eating the check immediately after the ceremony, or the check will be destroyed.

    Approximately 68% make the decision to eat that big check.

    Rational being most recipients haven't eaten for days, following the exciting news of their big win.

        I'm sure they have that as an option. The lottery office would have no further use for it. If fthey were to keep every check sincce its inception or introduction of the game in that respective state they would need 50k sq ft hall of winners.

          If they can't keep the one they poised with then can certainly afford to have a copy made.

              I wouldn't want it. How rediculous would it look walking into a bank and trying to cash it?

                      There is some trick proposed in the dvd "the secret", where you write a fake check to yourself, probably to get motivated.

                        I think you answered your own question.  At the very least, as RJOh said, they could get a copy made if they were so inclined.

                          Hey I need to do that.  I am serious. So do I make it out for the full value or the cash value?

                            It would be a souvenir. I would want to keep it.
