Perhaps your reasons would be that you want to avoid the press and local " please help me "vultures or simply to remain anonymous in a State that does not allow it.
Would you entertain that possibility?  I would with someone l trusted implicitly.

          Yes, and that someone would be from the Jackpot Winners Protection Program.

          The JWPP would go to the press conference for you and handle all correspondence for you. The JWPP would get a small percentage of the jackpot fopr doing this and keeping you sheltered. They'd just represent you and there wouldn't be questions about who is paying the tax on the winnings, you are.

          In your scenario in the OP I can just see a lotterty commission saying whatever individual accepts the check pays the taxes.

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          Lep

          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.

            no, I would never allow anyone else to claim a prize for me. Search for "Etta May Urquhart" to see what happens if you do.

              No.

              And especially not a slithering, squirming, writhing, undulating, lawyer.

                  yes, that is the news story I was talking about. I would have posted a direct link but last time I posted a link my entire account was deleted and I had to start a new one.

                  I would have linked the lottery post news story instead of abcnews because it has all of the usual LP personalities giving their 2 cents about what happened.

                        No I am perfectly capable to walk into the lottery headquarters and fill out paper work and wait for my check by myself but I would take my mother so that we could get a picture together of the big check.  Hopefully I will be going tomorrow morning to pick up my $183 million powerball jackpot.  Good luck to me.-weshar75

                              california will release your name to the public but they can't make you attend the press conference. I'd claim it, say, "NO!" to the press conference and then get the heck out of dodge.
