Smart Things to Do Before Claiming a Jackpot

Winning the lottery can be a dream come true, but only 1 in almost 200 million people actually win. While these are some seriously stacked odds, the fact is that some people do eventually win and usually have no idea what to do afterwards.

If you’ve won the lottery or know someone who has, consider the following tips.

Protect Your Winning Lottery Ticket

Check How Much Time You Have to Claim Your Powerball Prize

Find Out Whether You Can Remain Anonymous

Make Yourself Harder to Contact

See a tax pro before you cash the ticket

Avoid sudden lifestyle changes

Pay off all your debts

Assemble a team of legal and financial advisers

Invest prudently

Live within a budget

Take steps to protect assets

Process your win before claiming it

Get your ducks in a row!  Acquiring a massive amount of money is guaranteed to increase stress which, in turn, leads to poor decision-making. It is crucial to seek out financial planning assistance from a trained professional.

Hire competent advisers

Identify an attorney, an accountant, and a reputable financial adviser

Structure the best strategies for claiming

Long-term management

Try to remain anonymous

Have an attorney research the requirements of claiming your prize and devise your plan based on their findings. If you have to fight to remain anonymous, do it.

“Don’t hire friends, or friends of friends. Hire independent professionals.”

Hang onto your job… for now

Wait for the check to clear at least. Being too hasty can come back to haunt you, especially if you’re not yet officially declared the winner.

Pay the taxes on your winnings

The lottery will deduct 25 percent and give it to the government before they give you what’s yours. Unfortunately, the new fortune will likely bump you up to the top income tax bracket — 37 percent for 2018. You are responsible for paying the difference.

Pay off all your debts and other smart money moves

Credit cards, vehicles, school loans, and mortgages should all have a zero balance if you can afford it.

Create a budget to manage the money

You may think you have more money than you could ever blow, but lottery winners end up bankrupt regularly because they had no structure.  Even though you’ve gained an influx of money, it’s still essential to develop a foundation and stick to a budget.

Do you have kids or want to provide for someone else’s kids? One option you can look into is the 529 college savings plan through a company like CollegeBacker.

Whether it’s to a church, a charity, or just to a family member facing hard times, consider sharing some of your good fortune. Plus, when you give to a qualified charity, you get to deduct the donation on your taxes!

Learn to say NO!

“Think twice about investing in anything ‘exclusive’ that you don’t understand.”

Tips for playing the Baloto 5/43

Just a few thoughts before we get started –

Previous results have no bearing on future ones.

The key to successful lotto number selection methods are playing the probabilities.

If you play a pattern that occurs only five percent of the time, you can expect that pattern to lose 95 percent of the time, giving you no chance to win 95 percent of the time. So, don't buck the probabilities.

Lottery numbers are randomly drawn. But randomly drawn numbers form patterns that can be tracked and used to your advantage.

#Strategie 1:

Identifying Hot numbers, Cold numbers, Overdue Numbers

To use the hot, cold, overdue strategy, analyze the results of your chosen lottery – see which numbers have been drawn recently and which haven’t, at least 50 drawings is needed to get a decent sample size.

Hot numbers: Picked most frequently

Cold numbers: drawn less frequently overall.

Overdue numbers: are ones that have not shown up in recent weeks.

Some players claim that creating a set of winning numbers by mixing hot, cold, and overdue numbers gives players an edge.
#Strategie 2:

Pick Traditional Lucky Numbers

According to a poll run by mathematician Alex Bellos, seven is not surprisingly the most popular lucky number in the world.

Seven days of the week, seven wonders of the world, seven continents, seven seas, and the list goes on.

Other traditional lucky numbers include three (as in “good things come in threes”) and four.

Play Second-Chance Games (Where Possible)

Many lotteries offer second-chance drawings on non-winning tickets giving players a bonus chance to be a winner.
#Strategie 3:

Pick Traditional Lucky Numbers

Pick numbers that have a personal meaning to you. For example, birthdays, a wedding anniversary, or the birthdays of kids and/or grandkids. Apart from dates consider the number of kids you have or the house number of your childhood home – whatever feels lucky to you. Just a little note on this play, when it comes to picking lottery numbers, dates are just as popular and many people will play them. On the other hand, dates often show up among the most popular lottery numbers!
Bonus Tip!
Play a balanced game After you choose six numbers you want to play, add them together and make sure that the sum of the six numbers adds up to between 122 and 196. Sums that fall within that range will account for over 70 percent of all lottery jackpots won.

Take Steps to Secure Winning Lottery Tickets

Sign it! Your signature on the back of a lottery ticket can help you prove that it is indeed yours if it gets lost or stolen.
#Strategie 4:

Use Numerology to Pick Lucky Numbers

#Strategie 5:

Lucky Number Generators

The simplest way to find lucky numbers to play is simply to use a generator. Lucky number generators use numerology, or perhaps simply randomness, to find numbers for you.

 

Just a note About #LotteryStrategies

Finding and playing lucky numbers is based on fun more than facts.  Mathematically, every number has an equal chance of being chosen as a winner.

Is the Baloto 5/43 a Scam?

Absolutely not! The Baloto 5/43 was founded on January of 2001, and is still going strong over 19 years later.

Most important and Step 1 – If you think you have provided your bank account or credit card details to a scammer, contact your bank or financial institution immediately.

A lottery scam is an attempt to fraudulently extract money from someone by pretending to be a legitimate lottery company or winning player. It has sadly become a too common method of deception as such scams prey on people’s desire to win money and the popularity of big lottery games.

Unless a player actually was in a foreign country and bought a lottery ticket, foreign lottery notifications are frauds.

Only buy tickets from authorized lottery retailers.

Offers to sell international lottery tickets by mail or online are usually illegal.

If you didn't buy a lottery ticket or participate in a second-chance lottery game, you didn't win no matter how convincing a text message may sound.

The lottery doesn't notify players when you win; players alone are responsible for checking your winning tickets.

Players are NEVER required to pay money up-front to receive a winning lottery prize.

lottery scam is a type of advance-fee fraud which begins with an unexpected email notification, phone call, or mailing (sometimes including a large check) explaining that “You have won!” a large sum of money in a lottery.

Unfortunately, fake wins with other institutions have become a regular occurrence – Scammers are getting increasingly sophisticated in their attempts to get your money or personal details. Be alert and protect yourself from being scammed by following our tips.  

What to do:

If you receive a letter or email claiming that you won a prize for the BALOTO 5/43 Lotto but did not enter, it is strongly recommended that you:

Delete or destroy the letter or email immediately.

Do not open any link contained in a suspicious email.

Do not respond to, or contact, the sender.

Do not disclose any personal or financial information.

Do not send any money.

If you have already responded, break off contact with the fraudster immediately.

If you have provided personal or financial details, alert your bank immediately.

If you receive a suspicious email, or believe you have been the victim of internet fraud, report it to the police.

Important!

If players feel that their computer or device has been hacked or infected with malware or ransomware, run a virus check immediately!

If players suspect one of your online accounts (e.g. your bank account, email, online shopping account or social networking site) has been compromised, change passwords immediately. Most reputable websites provide step-by-step instructions for how players can recover a hacked account.

“Always check whether offers are legitimate, even those passed on from people you know”

Clues to look for:

The email is sent from a free webmail address (e.g. @hotmail.com, @yahoo.com, @gmail etc.)

The letter or email starts with something vague like ‘Dear Winner’.

Scam letters are often on poor quality, photocopied letterhead (although some will include a genuine business address in an attempt to provide legitimacy).

Strict time limit to claim the ‘prize’. This is intended to put the potential victim under pressure and deter them from seeking advice or investigating the matter further.

Confidentiality is often demanded as a ‘condition of winning’. Again, this is to deter the recipient from seeking the advice of friends or family who may be more familiar with this type of scam.

Poor spelling, grammar and syntax are usually a good indication that the letter or email is a scam.

Joining a lottery “club” will not improve your chances of winning foreign lotteries although Con artists will claim that pooling your money with other people means you can buy more tickets and have more chances to win.

The biggest note to remember – It’s impossible to win a lottery without buying a ticket and never share your banking or personal details with anyone!

The chances of recovering money from foreign crooks may be even worse than that of actually winning a lottery. Most lottery scams are executed by con artists in other countries, sometimes using U.S. addresses to disguise their real locations. Differences in legal systems, difficulties of conducting investigations in other countries, and expenses involved in pursuing cross-border fraud make the chances of getting your money back very, very slim to none.
