But there are many who win jackpot and other secondary prizes. Once you have won a prize you cannot leave things to chance. There are many decisions.
- Anonymous or Advertised
After winning the lottery it totally depends on the player whether to remain anonymous or reveal their identity. The choice is totally theirs to make. In case they have huge and want to keep their winning undercover they can opt for anonymity. In case they want to share the news of their win with the rest of the world, they can publicize their identity through lottery and media.
- Onetime or long-term payment
This is the second place after winning the lottery where the winners will be asked to make a choice. At the time of claiming the prize, the winner will be asked whether he wants to go for an annuity payment option or a lump sum payment option. It is totally in the hands of the winner to decide whether he wants the winnings in one go or he wants his winnings to get credited at regular instalments.
- Well-planned or exhaustive expenditure
This can be classified as a tale of two winners. There are two types of lottery winners; one who prefers enjoying the fruit of the winnings lifelong, the other who prefers impulsively spending all his winnings. The former gets to lead a normal life whereas the latter leads an initial lavish life that soon falls apart.
These are the three main choices that each winner gets to make after winning lottery prizes. You think for yourselves which choice will you make.
