I read this comment from lalala:

Also dont forget the other case if you get accepted. There could be repercussions (for future visa/visits) if you turn down a Green Card acceptance.

What are the repercussions if one turns down a green card acceptance?

    Here's a not on-target but related anecdotal experience. A German friend entered the lottery, was accepted, obtained a green card, and a year or so later changed his mind about emigration to the US and returned the card. He's visited the US several times since as a tourist. On his first post-green card tourist trip, he endured a slightly-lengthened interview at the US border 'tho he was not taken to secondary. His subsequent entries to the US have been completely smooth and without issues. – DavidSupportsMonica May 23 at 14:45
