Filed Chapter 7 in MN - more than 6 months from initial filing went gambling and won money at the casino.
Do I need to report this win to the lawyer or trustee? Do I get to keep the money or any portion of it?
The winnings are yours to keep under the law, provided you were gambling with either money that was exempt in your BK or else with money you earned from wages after the date of filing the BK. Looking at this differently, obviously the trustee would not be responsible to cover you if you had lost money, so money you won is yours to keep!
I hope you hang on to it and don't give it back to the casino!
Winnings that come beyond 6 months are not property of the estate so you're safe.
