      I had planned on trying that.  What I don't know, is if the lottery would insist on publishing the name you were known by at the time you won.  I'm pretty sure previous names will come up when they search your social security number for back taxes, child support etc.

        I've been wondering how beneficial it would be to change your name in the places that force you to do a photo op.

        I guess if you can disguise yourself decently enough so that the picture they release doesn't look like how you normally look. Dye your hair or wear a different colored wig with different length of hair, wear glasses (if you do wear glasses, make them vastly different but nothing strange), make sure your clothes are bulky to help hide your true weight and maybe try to alter your skin color a bit (mainly works if you're relatively light skinned, you could use a spray on tanner). That way people won't recognize you off of the publicity photo, since you could still go by your old name. After however long, six months I think, you could change your name back to your original.

        I would only go through that if I couldn't collect through a trust, though.

         

        I know in Texas you can request minimal publicity and they will only release your name and where you're from. In that scenario a name change works great.

            Here's what you do.

            Sign your ticket immediately when you buy it.

            When you find out it's a jp winner get a legal name change, perhaps something like Pierre Gustav Tutant Beauregard or maybe Stanislaw Casmir Pulaski Adamczyk.

            Then attempt to cash the ticket in the new name.

            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.

                  Name change is not that difficult, you can file the papers yourself,

                  please don't waste money on a lawyer for this, they charge $1500 and up for this, and you don't need them.

                  start by contacting your state's superior court for the county you live in,

                  they will give you further instructions.

                    Coin toss, going back about 15 years, they had a rule here that tix. cashed in a store had to be signed

                    no one took it seriously and everyone signed joke names of famous ppl.

                    I liked to sign it w/ Bill Clinton or maybe someone who was dead. LOL.

                        Or sign the ticket with the name you're going to change it to... and be denied the name change.

                         

                        @haymaker, I think the cost to change it is a couple hundred. A little under $300 in Texas. At least it was the last time I looked. If you don't slack you should be able to have a new name along with a new ID and SSN card name change in less than a month.

                        And if you win and look into changing your name, don't be put off when you learn you have to state a reason to a judge as to why you want to change your name (not sure if all states do this). Look at Metta World Peace, Kim Dot Com, Chad Ochocinco and Adidas Nike.

                            I really like my name so no way I'd ever think about changing it.. However, I might contemplate getting a different address on identifcation so that it would appear that I lived in another city/state...I'd also disquise myself very well when collecting my check.....Of course, the extreme I would go through would all depend on the amount I won....
