How many numbers are there to choose from? You have to choose 5 to win?

That last bit was a joke. If they publicly put your SSN in the news, that would probably be a lawsuit.

There was a woman recently, NH I believe, who sued the state lottery to remain anonymous. Long story short, it depends in your state, their rules, and how far you are willing to take it in court. My guess is with $1.6B, you can go pretty far in court.

Each game has 2 boxes, a red and a white. You pick 5 in the red box (I think that's 1-80 or something) and then 1 in the white (which is 1-20?). And that's $2.

I promise that my fee will be entirely reasonable.

She signed her name to the ticket. The state fought that when she signed it, they could use her name. You always hear that the first thing you do is sign the ticket. It was not very clear that she had to sign with an LLC in order to remain anonymous.

Only a few states you can be totally unknown. Most will just release your name and where the ticket was bought.
A couple of states use your name and face in commercials.
Whatever the local rules require, you have to follow in order to collect any winnings. No way around it.

It wasn't me. I didn't play.

SC is one of the few states where you can be anonymous regardless of how big the prize is.

Finally got around to checking my #'s.

This time, I got a 1 + 1 (70 + 5 PB) for $4. So, I spent $4 for Friday's drawing and won $10, then reinvested the $10 and won $4, so I broke even.
Guess I'll reinvest the $4 until I don't win anymore. In for a penny, in for a pound.

We took a $20 swing at it. We had three numbers total . .between all of them .. not that great

We will go back to banking it and saving $2020 a year [$20 * 2 * 52] - $20

Out of my 5 picks, I got 1, 1, 1 + 1, none, 1. Overall, I got 4 of the 5 regular #'s and the PB # spread out over 5 tickets. {sigh}
