Who wouldn't you tell if you won Powerball?
Many Christmas shoppers in New Hampshire added Powerball tickets to their list as the jackpot soared to an estimated $325 million Saturday. We took to the streets to ask Granite Staters: If you won the jackpot, who wouldn't you tell? NBC News reported early this morning that no one won the estimate $325 million jackpot Saturday, pushing Wednesday's draw to $425 million. Saturday's winning numbers, by the way, were 22-32-37-44-50, Powerball 34.
"I think that for the first four or five months I wouldn't tell anybody because I wouldn't want anybody to bother me for money. I just want to take care of my close friends, family and loved ones."
— Bob Grimard of Manchester
"My first wife."
— Bob Donnelly Sr. of New Hampton, who said he would spread the wealth among his grandchildren
"I wouldn't want to go public. If I could, I'd get a lawyer and have them go get the tickets if they can do it ... I'm not sure if you can do that or not."
— Jim Tagalakis of Manchester
"The public. I would keep it anonymous as much as I can."
— Peter Persijn of Manchester
"If I won, I wouldn't tell anyone for quite a while. With this kind of money, you need to do your homework. I definitely wouldn't sign the ticket right away because I might want to put it in a trust."
— John Zybert of Manchester
"I have three children. I would tell them, because they would definitely benefit. I would be quiet about it until I figured out how much I actually won."
— Audrey Dunn of Manchester
"I'd shout it from the rooftops and tell everyone. I know who my true and real friends are, trust me on that one. And I'd rent a limo or two and take all my baseball friends to Yankee Stadium. Even Red Sox fans so they could see what a real winning team and stadium looked like."
— Donna Ramsey of Manchester
"I can't think of anyone that I would tell, other than family and my lawyer. I'd want to keep a low profile. I'd make sure the extended family is taken care of."
— Jack Farnum of Manchester
"I wouldn't tell my father's other daughter. I'm buying $5 and that's it, I think. I'd try not to tell anyone."
— Pamy McClay of Manchester
