      Three people: Me, Myself, and I.

      After that its not a secret.

      And who doesnt like to keep a secret Wink.

      Then when reality sets in, I'd tell my lawyer and the Lottery.

        First would be my aunt who is a cpa. Then it would be her aunt who likes casinos and thats where nylotto would hold their press conference. Instead of penny machines, i would have her playing 100$ slots just for laughs.

              Since the a.c.v. (actual cash value) is over 100 million I'd have to tell my brother and two sisters since I'll be even splitting it with them...My bro's in CA so we'd have to wait for him to hot-foot it on a plane to get here

                That would be a need to know basis, lawyer, accountant, bank.

                Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

                          That was nice of them to match the sign to his jacket. Must be a winners perk.

                              I might not even tell myself, let alone anyone else.

                              Scared

                              Seriously though, it's said that everyone knows 20 people, combine that with loose lips sink ships and you have the less said the better. There are plenty of people out there who try to 'play hero' using other people's time, efforts and resources.

                              "Oh, you're in a bind? I know someone who won the lottery, I'm sure they'd be glad to help". Or worse yet, "I can get you the money you need."

                              Wink

                              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.
