    Why on earth would you go public if you'd won that much money? Crazy.

    Also, I saw a news thing of her and lady, spit your gum out. You're on TV. Jebus.

    In some states in order to collect the prize you have to appear on TV and agree to have your name and town you live in published. I do wish it was allowed to be anonymous, but these days they want the publicity. You CAN have a lawyer accept in a trust/etc (they'll take publicity photo), but you still have to have that press conference.

    @KingKobra Wow! That's kind of dangerous - she's just had to get out there and show her face to every robber and kidnapper?

    Yes, it's a rule, otherwise you can't collect the jackpot. Some states to allow you to have a lawyer accept (via trust) or collect anonymously, but not all. If you think about it, she accepted right before the hurricane news cycle, her story will be buried, except for those that look for her.
  • The more likely issue with public noteriety from winning the lottery is family and friends trying to get their piece of the pie.

    They actually changed the laws here around lotto winners having to be named after a child was kidnapped and ended up being murdered after they named the lottery winners and that was in the 60's. Now you have the rights to stay anonymous, most of the time you just here a man from this suburb won the jackpot etc.

    I'm happy to win the lotto and take the chance of someone kidnapping my cat or having to deal with grubby relatives..

    I imagine you can do what other rich people do. Seclude yourself from the poors, hire protection, etc.
