I can tell you by experience after winning the bingo jackpot of $3500, I was approached by a member of the ships crew and asked if I were a US citizen and when I responded yes, I was told I would have to pay taxes on the winnings. She filled out a 1098 form for me. Had I been German or European I would not have had to pay taxes or fill out any form. Moral of story: Put on your accent and list some wierd place other than the US if you hit it big.
