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.

There have been several jackpot winner who claimed via trust. WJW Investment Trust Oklahoma  Heritage Trust Oklahoma & The End of the Rainbow Trust Oklahoma all claimed VIA trust and their attorney released a statement on their behalves.

    A jackpot win for myself would be far too complicated to relegate it to a trust.  Also, I'm not too concerned with people knowing who I am.  I would probably not stay in Oklahoma for much longer.

       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?

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

      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.

              I'd give ticket to my two kids and let them deal with all the BS that comes with winning. For a price of course! Lease me a new car every year, buy me a condo on a golf course, and say $4,000 a month. But that's if win is ten million or more. Right now I'd settle for a couple nice pick-4 hits.

                Wet myself seems like a perfectly good option that wasn't mentioned. 

                Its all well and good for me to claim I'll be calm and stoic, the same way I act superior in the checkout line while all my healthy food is being rung up, knowing I have a bag of Snickers waiting for me in the car.

                I can do the perfectly composed genteel lady bit in the office, but I'll be screaming like a deranged banshee in the car. I'm only going to win once, might as well do the full gamut of emotions
