Obviously if you married,  your spouse gets to know. How about the gf, bf- do they qualify or is it on a " need to know basis" especially if you *think there is a possibility of the relationship going south?  Who else is definitely not getting a word of your windfall? The kids, neighbors- who? Have a Great Weekend People:

Above all else-Stay Healthy! Oh yeah,  win something while you out there.

    I think there was a previous thread about this already.

    Don't tell anyone who you think is going to harass you for money.

                  I wouldn't tell anyone outside of my immediate family, and I'd probably delay telling even them. Arizona gives winners 90 days of privacy. I'd claim the prize, buy a house elsewhere, give my 2 weeks notice, and be long gone before my name became public.

                    With a name like Murgatroyd you wouldn't be hard to find.  LOL

                      The list of people I wouldn't tell is too long to type here. I'd make sure nobody knew except my spouse, lawyer, accountant, and financial advisor.

                             I am thinking that I will take my winning ticket to the Lottery Office and have them just validate it. I would get the ticket and receipt back and place them in a safe deposit box. I will contact the Lottery Office first before going there and ask them if I could do that.

                             This will not work if the winner lives far away from the Lottery Office.
