I would setup a blind trust - create a company underneath it all to hide myself - and maybe even then the name I would use on the documents would be a legal alias (which I believe is legal in the US).

So if anyone figured out the details of the trust that accepted the prize - they would only see a legal alias name and still could not connect the dots (very easily at least).

Basically, hire lawyers, financial planners and accountants before I ever saw a $. Then go and have an awesome time.

If there were a fast way to play 175 million different number combinations, you would definitely win. The down side would be if other people won as well.

Not if my Lawyer goes to collect on behalf of the trust. Of course it depends on your state if that is.

At this point you could even go for the 26 annual payments and receive just over $19 million a year.

Lump sum for me, at 359 million cash option. I think I could get a better than 5.3% return annually.


Of course this is not factoring taxes...

True. But think if you were told by your doctor you have 2 weeks to live, you will be pissed that you didn't take that lump sum.
