You give consent by filling out the claim form and claiming the prize from the lottery. In most states that consent allows the lottery to use your name and likeness for publicity.  There's a slim chance it might even allow the store that sold you the ticket to do so. It definitely doesn't require your consent to let a store in another state do so just because you came in and checked the numbers.

That said,  the guy was in a public place and had no reasonable expectation of privacy, and anyone who took his picture or shot video is free to display it for non-commercial uses, including editorial use, which is what was done in this case.

It was still a lousy thing for the store to do. The store selling awinning ticket may be required to submit any security footage to the lottery, but releasing it to the public is strictly their own choice. If I were to win, one of the first things on my to do list would be call the store and tell the manager that there was a fat tip waiting if nobody ran their mouth about who they thought might have won.

So ypu plan on paying people to NOT talk about you at the liquor store??

    Seems really strange that you would call the liquor store and say "I did NOT win that lottery game"

                              Paul Horner is a big time finance guy who lives in Maryland.

                               

                              I haven't heard or read any updates recently about the Arizona winner.

                               

                              As for the guy caught on tape? hmmmm
