1. Sign your winning ticket
It’s possible the Mega Millions winner is biding his or her time before claiming the prize. Maybe the person is making plans and meeting with advisers or perhaps simply hoping that the excitement over the jackpot will die down.
Regardless of the reason, we hope its rightful owner has signed the back of the winning ticket. Otherwise, a friend or family member in the know could swipe the ticket, sign it themselves and claim the money.
