What happens if you win the lottery? 

Statistics show that 70 percent of people who win the lottery lose it all. Winners need to quickly learn how to protect their money, privacy and themselves. 

When signing the ticket, leave some room above your signature, as the money will likely be claimed in a trust. 

Make a copy of that ticket, and then get yourself a lawyer before you claim the money.
