They still won't do the loan, banks cannot think "outside the box!" The bank would fear getting scammed with a bogus ticket.

First decision maker would say why do they need money, just cash the ticket! 2nd decision maker would argue they wouldn't make enough interest on the loan since it would be re-paid almost immediately so the bank would make literally nothing.

and it would be even more important if you're in a state that doesn't allow you to remain anonymous.

Wow, that money will go a long way in SC. I hope the winner uses it for good and it can be a blessing, not a curse.

Default SC lottery winner

"A Thursday press release from Kurland's law firm, Rivkin Radler, said that the woman is donating to the following charities to "show her appreciation" to South Carolina and Simpsonville, the city where she purchased the winning ticket:

Ronald McDonald House of Charities of Columbia, S.C.
One S.C. Fund for Hurricane Florence Relief
In The Middle, Columbia, S.C.
The City of Simpsonville Arts Center
American Red Cross Alabama Region - Tornado Relief Fund"

I see no mention of any 'plaster Dwarves'. Just acts of charity

This guy is the "lottery lawyer!" He has represented well over 2 billion dollars in jackpots!

Other winners Kurland's represented include:

Putnam Avenue Family Trust, winner of a $254.2 million Connecticut Powerball lottery.
Rainbow Sherbert Trust, winner of a $336.4 million Rhode Island Powerball jackpot.
The Ning Trust, winner of a $121.6 million Powerball jackpot in Delaware two years ago.

They are all getting a new, shiny set of 7 dwarves in plaster and matching washing machines and dryers.

I think anyone who would trust the government to make good on 30 years of payments versus a lump sum payout in any lottery is a fool.
