Yeah, yeah, yeah, another Lottery question.
But this question has popped into my head a few times over the years and I never got around to asking it. Now that I’m looking at a front page of IMHO that has several Lottery themed questions, my old question has come to mind so I figure I might as well ask it before I forget again.
I don’t expect to ever win the Lottery, but I enjoy having sensible well plotted fantasies about it. One major concern in my Lottery fantasies is that my name not be plastered all over the news. Sure, I personally can’t recall the name of any big lotto winner, but, of course, I never knew any of them personally. If I had known them personally I would have recognized and remembered them from the public announcement or I’d have been told about it by a common friend.
Now, I don’t need an obscene amount of money by Bel Air standards but I wouldn’t mind having an obscene amount of money by West Philadelphia standards- just enough to say “Yo, Homes, smell ya later”.
What do you think is the most amount of money I could win from the Lottery without drawing enough attention to have my name mentioned in the media?
To not have it come up on the first couple pages of results of a Google search of my name?
(Perhaps this would be a smaller sum that the answer to the question above?)
