 When you bring your winning ticket to the Lottery Office. How would you react at the moment the officials place your ticket into the validation machine and it is verified? What would you do? Scream? Cry? Kiss your loved ones?

      Relief maybe? It would be a pain to carry around the winning ticket, what if you lost it!

      2016 Won/Lost

      EuroMillions / Spent: £22 / Won £0 / Total -£22

      UK Lotto / Spent: £4 / Won: £0 / Total: -£4

      2016 Total: -£24

      Jan: -£22 Feb: £0 ~ Mar: £0 ~ April: £0 ~ May: £0 ~ June: £0 ~ July: £2

       

      EuroMillions = £2 Line / Played: x11 [old price] 

      EuroMillions = £2.50 Line / Played: x0

      UK Lotto = £2 Line / Played x2

        This is exactly how I feel.  As far as anonymity, I wouldn't get any as Oklahoma would not allow it.  I would just get the ticket turned in, breathe a sigh of relief and begin the rest of my life.

          I'll smile when it's in my bank account. Before that, anything can happen.

            I'm not much of a talker, but I would be my usual pleasant self and exchange small talk. I'd probably say a stupid joke or pun, and then get to getting things done.

            I'm not looking to become friends with anyone while I am there.

            I just want to get in, get out, and get on with it!!

              I agree with Redd55, or split the winning ticket 50/50 with an old relative if they agree to claim it and not mention my name at the lottery office.

                I'm with you. I'll be relieved when I put in the claim, but the happy dance will begin when the check hits my bank account.

                  I'd be relieved

                   

                  but we would have a lot of paperwork left to do so id be focused on that.  I can do small talk, i'd be polite but i wouldnt drag it on.

                        If I'm at the Lottery Claim Office: The Ticket has already been Verified at the Lottery Agent!

                          If I drive two hours to the claim office I am 100% positive that I have a winning ticket.  At that point it is all business.

                              They're just telling me something I already know, so once the ID is provided and signatures

                              obtained, it is a relief knowing it's on the way to processing and validation. The waiting is the

                              hard part but the great feeling that comes with winning is good to fall asleep with each night.

                              Just go in, don't talk to anyone you don't need to...there are enough people who want to know

                              what you won but don't worry about being rude, you will not see them again. 

                              One option that isn't listed is jump up and down with joy...yes, it happens. Really.
