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.

CMIIW, but I would think there must be a way to not pay taxes on the cost of all the tickets as a business expense
Not a business expense but you can net gambling losses making the ROI slightly better if you can buy all the numbers. But that would also increase the risk of multiples. And itís practically impossible

IIRC, they didn't actually get every single ticket, it's really hard to do in a week. They did end up winning but I don't remember how many winners there were and how much they made. GIYF, I'm sure you can find the story.

Can we change it to 10%-90% so I am not in violation?

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

You have a year to claim. Wait 8-9  months, Legally change your name, and claim on a very busy news day.
