    That's a little too much cash.

    I wouldn't want to spend most of my remaining time abroad, because I will... behind the wheel of a Bugatti.

    JIC - rules to win by:

    Relax, put a cool compress on your head, and let the moment sink in.

    Sign the back of the ticket. This, Drucker said, is "extremely important," and needs to be done, "right away."****

    Put the ticket in your safe place. Over the years, Drucker said she has heard of big jackpot lottery winners putting their tickets everywhere from in a fireproof safe to in the middle of a Bible. So long as it doesn't get lost or destroyed, it'll work.

    Contact your closest family members or friends to confer with them, and make sure you are all on board with the news of the win.

    Contact a financial advisor, accountant, or someone who you trust to discuss the implications of the huge influx of cash. "It is huge, so you want people who are knowledgeable about finances to advise you," Drucker said.

    Call the NJ Lottery commission at (609) 599-5800. You will be invited to lottery headquarters in Trenton so your ticket can be verified.

    At HQ, you will file a claim form, and have your ticket verified and validated. The whole process takes about an hour, she said.

    **** I strongly disagree with this one. Make a half dozen copies and then put it in the bank box unsigned. Then form a corporation that will claim the payout. Your name is not exposed. Carry on.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    . If you ain't havin' fun, it's your own damn fault

    There isn't a chance in Hell I'd call Jersey!!! LOL. You call the State Lotto Commission
    where you bought the tic I believe.

    But I do agree about the Corp.

    I'm not sure I'd even call my close relatives... Maybe call from
    Hawaii after the move...
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Well hell, I only missed it by 5, I got 65 on a quick pick.


    Yeah, I’d only call two relatives myself. But were i to walk off with over 500 mill there are some relatives who would get an anonymous gift.
