If you did win a large jackpot and you wanted to tell everyone here........How would we know it was you??? I guess I'd throw my screen name out there....but we need a way to recognize each other if we are so inclined to come forward publicly........Me I can't wait to tell you all it was me who won......

      I wouldn't mind sharing on a forum like this where all anyone would know is my screen name and rough location, but I would be kind of reluctant to publicly announce a large win.  I wouldnt want the headache associated with that kind of infamy.  Anyone who claims they won on here though would have to post a pic of the winning ticket to be taken seriously IMO...

          Yeah I thought about that.... someone posting a photo of the tickets....but how would we know it wasn't just taken from the net somewhere else...like some of the other pics we put on here

              I wouldn't believe anyone that claimed they won a prize on here AFTER it had already been claimed publicly at the lottery office anyway for just that reason!  The way I see it, I certainly wouldn't be claiming a large jackpot very quickly.  I would be meeting with attorneys and financial planners and figuring how to go about claiming the prize in the best way possible.  That being said, there would be a window of opportunity for me to post the pic on here before the prize is actually officially claimed.   Not sure how that could be faked.  And you could also state who will and what date the prize is going to get claimed and that will get posted on the official lottery website too.  That would also be pretty hard to fake.


              I do like the LP gang sign idea though for the official press conference!   LOL!

                  w/ a large win I may not have time to come on here.

                  at least til things settle down.

                    I think about this every day. Crazy

                     

                    Actually only when I'm off my meds.

                     

                    I can think of a few things I would mention in my interview that would make it vividly clear that it's me.

                     

                    A few quips here and there and the regulars would know.

                      Pay LP an extra hundred bucks to have your screen name printed on one of their T-shirts.

                       

                      Hundred bucks? Yeah man. You can afford it now. Besides its a custom order and it needs to be rushed.

                        If I won the lottery.............I would post a photo of the winning one-line ticket along with my screen name in Ronnie's thread........than I would just stop posting......................

                          Wear an LP cap and T-shirt when you claim your prize. Mention LP in the interview.

                            I would never tell any one who I wasn't sure would never ask for a hand out which not only include LP members but some family members too.
