All we need to do is to pick out numbers and go to the local lottery store and put your money down and hope for the best. So you say that is nice but has anybody won it and can I do that too?

A point I would like to make is about what if I win the Montana Lottery? Then what? How do I handle all that money?

But how do we make this happen soundly and how do I now protect this great asset I won?
A good tip would be to surround yourself with experts and fee based professionals to help with your financial decisions you need to make. Once you and your experts have decided how to claim your money, either a lump sum or a one time payout then it would be time to take your winning ticket to the nearest Lottery Office to claim your winnings. A very exciting time. Expect them to want to take your picture with a huge check that you and maybe your spouse would hold.

Now you may want your name not published and they will abide by your wishes but some states have a thing called public records. Your name may become part of a public record for winning the Montana Lottery. The gaming commissions can’t change this as the recent winner from Arizona found out after a news organization ask for the public record and learned of the man who won and went and interviewed him. They learned the amount he won and the payout amount and other personal things.
