Do we have any updates on the status of this bill.

 

 I honestly don't know how it all works, but what I recall is that it was awaiting signature, with the deadline being April 1st.

Do you think this will WV will be the next state to see things for what they are.....and allow winners to live a normal life after hitting the big one?

    They should look at the UK National Lottery, it is the most successful lottery in the world. It raises billions of pounds for projects across the UK, all prizes are tax-free and winners have the right to remain anonymous.

    One of the most important decisions for new winners to make is whether to opt to go public or remain anonymous. If a winner decides to talk publicly about their win, Camelot’s PR team will organise a press conference and handle all media interest on their behalf, removing the anxiety that can accompany talking about a big win.

    If they have requested to remain anonymous, Camelot takes its obligations and duty of care to protect winners’ privacy very seriously. Unless a winner agrees to take full publicity and signs an agreement to that effect, no information about them can be released by Camelot into the public domain.

    We have a dedicated team of winners’ advisers who look after all our major jackpot winners. They remain a source of support and advice for as long as a winner needs – often remaining in touch years after hitting the jackpot.

    We all get a lot out of lotteries!

      Being from the UK I do find the way US lotteries are run to be rather odd. Case in point the powerball winners that hired a shady attorney and went on tv appeared to receive  no support or advice from the lottery company. In the UK Camelot will arrange meetings with reputable lawyers and financial institutions allowing winners to avoid shysters like the aforementioned attorney.
