What you do if you win the lottery Powerball?
“Special congratulations to the winner of this multi-million dollar Powerball jackpot! We encourage the winner to sign the back of that winning ticket, make a copy of both sides and put it in a safe place, and contact Lottery Headquarters at 609-599-5875 to arrange to file a claim for this multi-million dollar jackpot prize,” White continued.
“The person should give a copy of the tickets and a list of [participants] to everyone who’s in the pool,” Kurland said, who specializes in helping lottery winners.
“That way, if the person who’s in charge also bought a ticket on their own and it ends up winning, there’s a way to prove it wasn’t part of the pool,” Kurland said.
The simpler thing is just to buy tickets on your own.
The odds of nabbing the jackpot is 1 in 292.2 million for a single ticket, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association. Buying more than one — whether through an office pool or on your own — doesn’t increase your chances by much.
