So I was thinking, how annoyed would you be if you won the jackpot and went to an attorney to start creating a trust so you can stay anonymous, then so much time passed and the lottery released the video showing you buy your ticket?

 

It just seems like the ultimate bummer. I guess if you ever win, make it a point to contact the lottery shortly after winning and let them know you're making plans before you redeem the ticket?

      I don't think they should do that unless the ticket is a month away from expiry. But most of the guys who run the lotteries are not the smartest people..they are state employees with no real competence required  No Nod

        The only requirements to successfully becoming a state employee are:

         

        1. Be dumber than the rest of your states population.   Troll

        2. Be in the lower 1% of the common sense and integrity tests.  Big Smile

        3. Be able lie as easily as you steal.  Cussing Face

          I agree with maringoman.

          They should have a set policy in place that they start looking for you in the last 30 days using any info or photos at their disposal.

          That way you know how much time you have before your face is out there and all your crazy ex's find out you won the lottery.

            Its rare that the video cameras in the store can correctly identify you. Most crime shows even say that they cant identify the criminal correctly as the videos are grainy and of poor quality. I really don't care as we are watched by big brother on highways and other places....Its become a monitoring fiesta! Ole'Lay!

              you can buy your ticket from a machine wearing a surgical mask that covers your face. If a nosey customer asks you why you are wearing a mask tell them you don't want to catch the flu.

                  I think they should have a warning at least a week before they release the image/video. Last year here they released images after only a month, though the guy did say he was unaware he won (it was weird though because he checked the ticket at numerous places and at different times). The image was pretty clear as well, he was called and informed that his picture was shown.

                   

                  And I realize you could wear one of those germ masks, but I'd rather not. I wouldn't expect people to be nosy though, I see see people wearing them fairly often. I think it would be best just to call up the lottery office. You could even use a payphone. I actually wouldn't be surprised if an attorney would want you to do that anyways just so they themselves can confirm that it's the actual winning ticket.

                  I caught the camera staring at me today when I was getting a state game ticket and had this thought pop in my head.

                    99% of ALL lottery Players will never win the JP in their lifetime.

                     Although, Pick-3 and pick-4 Players are enthusiastic. Why you ask?

                    They get smaller and sometimes consistent returns, as opposed to tireless attempts in beating insurmountable odds.

                      this is true. Personally, the only benefit I get from buying multi-state and state lottery tickets so far is the fantasy value of what I'd do if I won. I think spending a few dollars here and there to fantasize isn't too bad.

                        I totally agree with you whiteballz about the day dreaming what if?  For only a little bit of money powerball lets me dream all thursday, friday and saturday.  What I would do with the money if I got lucky and hit a nice prize in powerball.  Plus it is nice when you do hit some numbers to get back some of the money lost buying into this dream called the lottery.  Good luck to you Whiteballz!-weshar75

                              I know that, but why have a 'Oh it's never going to be me' mentality?

                              Some other person playing the game won, with those same statistics. Likely always hearing 'Oh you're never going to win'.

                              Nothing wrong with having a little optimism.
