She could have waited and formed a Trust to claim the prize instead of in person, and let the lawyer have his face all over the news instead of hers and her family's. He'd love the free publicity.

Does that mean people will never find out who you are? Maybe not, but it significantly reduces your exposure. By the time several weeks have passed, the news and tabloids will be on to the next story and the next lottery winner will be upon us.

It looks like this winner decided to claim as quickly as possible probably hoping all the attention would be over quickly. And she might be right because there is still that winner in California.

    Right. Get it over with quickly, go into hiding. On with the news cycle to the next big thing.

        The guy got screwed. He helped GA make alot of money. His smile is fake. Maybe she'll give him a xmas gift.

      How is it fake when it states that's the California store owner?

      Isn't he getting paidWhat?

        Yup, he's getting $1 million for selling the winning ticket in California.

        I hope officials in GA revisit their policy regarding retailer bonus.  I mean it's one thing if the GA owner got a small bonus or something, but they got nothing!

          Store owners should get maybe a 2 year subscription to the Jelly of the Month Club for selling a winning jackpot ticket.

          They're already getting paid for selling tickets and it ain't like it's hard to find somebody to do it.

          A million dollar bonus for doing your job?

          That's ridiculous, give it to the people who put that money in there by buying the tickets.

            I kind of think $1 Million for the store is a bit much. CA is among the highest retailer jackpot bonus at 0.5% up to $1,000,000. Many other states cap it at $10,000. That money they pay for retailer jackpot bonus is money that could go back into better payouts on games for players.

            Cali is several years behind the more mature lotteries on the east coast. Look how long it took us to get $10 Scratchers, and just this year got a $20 Scratcher. We're also slightly behind the big ones on total payout, and way way behind on sales per capita.

            So the store wins $1M, the owner retires and closes the store. Is that good for sales? Hmmm... But something smaller like $100K or $10K, he's probably not going to close the store over it.

              Ira Curry claimed her winnings and skipped the press conference. Within hours she was introduced to the public without her permission. The media was in front of her own, pictures of her home and car were posted online and pictures of her and her husband on vacation was also posted. There is no privacy in winning. and players need to accept it. Some people actually made comments lke "look at that house she live in". and "why was she even playing".

                Just goes to show you the media can find out anything they want to know about anyone's identity and anyone's past.

                And really fast.

                But certain people they just don't want to know about their real identity or their past.

                And they don't want anybody else to know either.

                  Psykomo, that was the funniest thing I've ever read from you. You're probably funny all the time but this time I could actually understand what you wrote. Loved it brother.
