Winners / Players share tips FROM PAGE A1 Some subscribe to the 50 or so newsletters that list even obscure contests. Others log into the dozens of Web sites and chat rooms. "We have a motto of sharing," says Jackie Lewis, spokeswoman for the Puget Sound Clams in Tacoma, Wash., and editor of the newsletter "Clam Chatter." "When it comes to winning things, most of us have just won each other's friendship." Playing the odds Sweepstakes "have taken it on the chin lately with the high-profile lawsuits against American Family Publishers and high-profile pitchmen Dick Clark and Ed McMahon. But those mass-mailed "You may already be a winner!" promotions aren't what people like the Haineses are after anyway. They're scanning the supermarket aisles for product hang tags or the offer on the candy wrapper. Sponsors are-taking note. Shelby Jones is managing director of promotions at Don Jagoda Associates in Studio City, Calif., which runs sweepstakes for name brands of bleach, charcoal and salad dressing. The number of contests her company runs has increased about 20 percent in five years. In fact, the contests have created a class of "professional sweepers." Todd France, vice president of sales and marketing for Career Sports Management Inc. in Atlanta, showed up to greet the three winners of a Disney World lunch with ex- Dallas Cowboys tight end Jay How to win sweepstakes Tips to improve your Chances in sweepstakes: • • follow rules to the letter^ 4%"8<p>stbard jrnesra, exactly that \ if. *- , . ^ „ r / , » Make entry cards out of bpkes frorn,the sponsor's ; product .It catches th%ep t anc( sa^as yc»M'»noney/'l , , • If a contest calls for;entlries>on odd-sized paper or-' • written In all block lettsrs,; enter, rribre!pften < Hflrde(' -^' * requirements mean fe^erenPn^.", " ' * **" !'\' » Besides the store's d"rop,btox, put^ari ett^ih the rpalf. • Some stores forget to send in Hie bo*e& x • Prizes may be taxed.

Two were clad from head to toe with products they'd won in other sweepstakes. Many devotees spend thousands of dollars each year on postage for entries. Hodgkins says one woman sold blood to buy stamps, "like alcoholics do for booze." "It's gambling, really," says Mark Williams, a Louisiana state auditor and coordinator of the Dixieland Winners, which is host of this July's national sweepstakes convention in New Orleans. "You can either spend it at a casino and try your luck there, or you could try the lottery," says Williams. "Actually, you've got better odds of winning a sweepstakes." He ought to know. Williams entered a sweepstakes on a riverboat casino. He lost at the slots but drove away in a Cadillac. One person's gamble is another's insurance. Haines had to leave nursing in 1988 because of crippling arthritis and a connective tissue disorder. She got into sweepstakes to fight boredom, but the hobby came to mean much more when she and her husband lost their health insurance. Now, they go for big-ticket items that they can sell to pay doctor bills. That's what happened with the matching pickup and bass boat they won in 1993. "I see every win as a blessing," Haines says. A winner offers some advice Former Powerball winner says to plan carefully, be discreet By MARY NEUBAUER The Associated Press DBS MOINES, Iowa — Advice from a Powerball winner: plan carefully, before and after turning in the lucky ticket. "The only thing that will win that money is that ticket, not a copy of that ticket, not an 'I had that ticket,' it must be that ticket," said Ed Brown, a former Powerball winner from Washington, Iowa. "So you must protect that. "And second of all, you've got to protect your privacy because you will be inundated with requests, and not necessarily from people seeking money, just basically the whole spectrum, because you'll have so much," he said. Brown, the mayor of Washington, a town of about 7,000 in southeastern Iowa, won a $5.2 million Powerball jackpot in December 1992. He said he contacted a lawyer for advice before claiming his winnings, but with an estimated $150 million Powerball jackpot for Wednesday's drawing, any winner needs to be even more careful. "I would definitely have an attorney before I cashed the ticket, I would take the ticket to a safety deposit box and I would be very closed-mouthed about it," Brown said Monday. "I wouldn't say that nor- "I would take the ticket to a safety deposit box and I would be very closed-mouthed about it" Ed Brown former Powerball winner talking about winning the $150 million jackpot mally, but due to the fact that it is $150 million, the person who would win that would be a very public figure from then on." Powerball, a game administered by the West Des Moines- based Multi-State Lottery Association, is played in 20 states and the District of Columbia. With each $1 ticket, Power- ball players try to match five numbers drawn from a pool of 49, plus a Powerball number drawn from a series of 42. The odds of winning are 1 in 80.1 million. Nobody hit Saturday's record $119 million jackpot; 23 people had all but the Power- ball number and received $100,000 each. The previous record lottery jackpot in the United States was $118.8 in April 1991 in the California Lottery, according to the Multi-Statfe Lottery Association. Lotteries around the coun- try have developed handbooks with general advice for jackpot winners. The pamphlets include suggestions for choosing financial advisers and attorneys, information about tax laws that could affect winnings, tips for handling media calls, and telephone numbers and addresses for government agencies, including the Internal Revenue Service. Some of the handbooks also suggest that winners get an unlisted telephone number or at least use an answering machine to screen calls. Rick Wisler, executive director of the New Hampshire Sweepstakes Commission, emphasizes long-term plans for lottery winners. "If they don't have a will, they really should make one," Wisler said. "We strongly encourage them to seek not only an attorney but also a financial adviser." Liability concerns prevent lottery officials from giving specific advice. "But we do suggest strongly that they take their time and find a good financial adviser, interview people, get advice from others," said Jeff Gorvin, assistant public relations manager for the Minnesota State Lottery. "You really need somebody you can trust." Burns Mossman, a Des Moines lawyer who helps clients with financial planning, said lottery winners will face a deluge of calls and requests and likely will want to take steps to avoid that.
