1 - Is there a place here where you can check to see what is and isn't allowed for your state lottery? Like LLC's, blind trusts, or if you must be photographed?
2 - Anyone else notice that your state lottery keeps changing "the rules"? In NC, you did not have to be photographed and could have an LLC - those two items were actually in the FAQ section. Now, there is no mention of either, but a new question: "Q: If I should win a large top prize, do I have the option of remaining anonymous with regard to the media and the public? A: The NCEL will consider a winner’s name, city/county, and the prize amount a matter of public record, unless the winner produces a valid protective order or Address Confidentiality Program authorization card." *bangs head against wall*
Many questions people ask are regarding what you can and can't do in certain states. I always thought it would be nice to have a section where people can keep up on what is legal (and not necessarily mentioned in the FAQ) in each state. Obviously, you can check out the state's website, but again, there is much they don't say because they don't want you getting ideas about what they'd rather you not know (like you legally do not have to have your photo taken). People can date it, so you know how old the information is. Personally, I've saved what NC has posted on their website over the years, but it keeps changing - with less information each time.
And yes, it would contain at the top of the lists, that answers are not definitive, blah blah legal stuff so that you can't sue the person or the site for misinformation.
