If I won I wouldn't tell anyone, but I would find ways to help people that I know need help, even if it was through anonymous means. I would live fairly close to how I live now, and would have nice things, but keep them somewhat separate from my everyday life.
It's a matter of safety, and a matter of wanting to live a normal life, but without the stresses. I would even keep working the same way I work now to be honest. I like doing the jobs I do when I'm working.

I'd hold off claiming or saying a word until getting a plan totether with my lawyer, banker and accountant.

If you were lucky enough to live in a state that didn't require disclosure that could work.

How can they force you to publicly disclose winnings? To the IRS, sure... But to the general public? Stuff that...

I forget where I watched or heard about it, but they stated this is indeed the case in a lot of states, and apparently the way around it was to set up a trust fund or something along those lines.
Several states force the lottery commission itself to disclose the winner. This was supposedly done to show that the winners weren't family of lottery staff and that the lottery was transparent.
