    Good for her. I hope she save some for future use and not blow it all away.

    I'm sure if a winner doesn't want to consent to the terms and conditions, they will gladly find someone else who will :)

    I agree, but unfortunately, the "terms and conditions" of cashing in on lottery winnings, as I understand it, at least the larger sums, states that the Lottery can use your name for promotional purposes.

    I don't think so. To claim the prize, I believe you have to consent to be in lottery advertisements etc..

    If I were a single woman living by myself I would be very leery of having my name announced as a lottery winner. Are there any considerations for the safety of winners?
