Coin Toss had a good idea for a follow-up to my last poll.  Let's assume that all lotteries already allow you to remain anonymous when collecting your winnings, even for multi-million dollar jackpots.  However, as an incentive to subject yourself to the sort of publicity that the lotteries prefer, they're willing to offer you more money on top of the amount you've already won.  Would you go for it, or would you be content to stay in the shadows with your advertised winnings?

            The only way the state is going to give you a $100. is if you give them something worth $10,000.

              I could offer them an App for reading super small fonts on lottery posts. That's gotta be worth at least $10k.

                Give them that AND the $10k and you have a deal for the $100.

                              nother good thread Media,

                              They would have to pick up the taxes, at least at the state level and maybe the fed level,

                              although I don't know how they could work that out.

                              i'll give ya 5 on this one too.
