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.

a single ticket. Possibly part of a group of tickets and buyers. (If they can find it....)  8) Maybe we'll find out in 6 months.

Hopefully the winner didn't throw his ticket away thanks to a stupid mistake by the Massachusetts State Lottery.

Henche, what long hair you have.

I'm shocked that it's one ticket and one person. And even more shocked that she came out the next day! Would be smart to hire an advisor, etc...

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Don't know but that would raise the expected winners to four. Is it still worth it?

Would raise the winnings value too, no?
5 winners and you're screwed.
