I've already got a safe deposit box for some collectibles so it wouldn't be a problem for me to add that winning powerball ticket to my goodies! Smiley

    especially if it was on the weekend i would get a fireproof lock box and put the ticket in that.  I would drive down to claim the prize with the box and they key in my bra!

    I agree.  I have a fireproof lock box in my basement.  I keep all my important papers there.  If I win a lot of money, that's where the ticket is going.

      Just sign the ticket and have it validated as soon as possible{if you have been using LP all this time, you already have your ducks in a row, RIGHT?}. You know they are not going to hand over a gigantic jackpot {PB/MM} win that same day to you. If you live in a BLABBER-MOUTH  STATE that will parade you around like a show dog and blabber your  name all over the world, I say good luck with that.

          I've had a safety deposit box for about 15 years.  Put the birth certificates, passports, and other legal documents.  They can be very handy.

            I'd rather buy a small fireproof safe. It won't be in there long anyways.

              The best way to keep the ticket safe is to keep your mouth shut. Don't tell anyone, no family, friends, co-workers etc. Then get your legal and financial affairs in order and have them go with you when you claim the ticket.

              The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.

              Don't just think outside the box, crush it.

                I'm a registered player at my lottery company. Any wins are registered automatically and the wins above a set level will be transfered to my bank account the day after the draw.

                  Excellent point on the extra insurance. Just in case some unscrupulous person looking for a quick payday, throws them self off your porch, and then sues claiming they "slipped" on some water or sand, or un-shoveled snow.

                          Thanks for the clarification there G. For a moment l thought your whole idea was keeping the family,  friends & co workers in the dark while you got your finances in order " and then"  wham, G is gonna surprise them by saying" sorry for all the secrecy & not letting you all know, but l would like you all to share in my moment, so come along, off to the lottery office we go."  I know l couldn't top that.

                            • I dont have a comment on the safety deposit box grwurston but I do on your signature! What a perfect motto for lotto. 

                            "Everybody's so different, I haven't changed" ............ I would love to think that would be me, but in all honesty, how could a jackpot win NOT change a person?  I know it would me, I just hope it wouldnt be for the worst.

                            • I love Joe Walsh!  Especially when he played with the Eagles, one of my favorites along with number 1, Fleetwood Mac.
