Ways to stay anonymous:

1. Don't cash the ticket.  Instead, frame it with one of the numbers obscured, and hang it in your office. 
2. Give it to someone you can trust, like me to cash in.

I bought 2 tickets this time, with the same numbers on both tickets. My cheshbon is that there are so many people playing this time around that there will definitely be more than 1 winner (likely to be 3). When I win, I want to have 2 shares of the jackpot and double my take.

I really wanted to keep this quiet, but decided to share my strategy to see how much hana'ah Dan gets from it.
Or if you win a lower prize you actually will walk away with double.  :P

Can't wait to gloat it over all of you poking fun on this thread, when you could have won 1.5 billion if you hadn't been too lazy to buy a ticket.

They would have saved a lot of yiddishe gelt if they would have just gotten one ticket for all the faculty to share.

That I could have gotten for $1 less by buying powerplay. I wanted to double all my prizes though.

If I was a parent, I'd be furious.  You mean I might not have a school to send my kids to tomorrow?

Worst business decision ever.
If you focus on being a boss, you will never be a leader. Leaders lead people to growth and improvement.

Oy. They spent nearly $1000 on this?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Insane. I'd be livid.
If $1,000 is burning a hole in your pocket then buy 1 ticket and raffle off the rest as a nice bonus for 1 staff member.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

+1.5B


 Nice way of getting out of paying taxes on the winning. (non profits dont pay tax, but the rebbeim will still be taxed on their winnings.
