      No I never noticed. Lawyers don't like ppl's being anonymity?

          What they don't like is losing a chance to be hired for a fight over a lottery pool.

            You mean the pool leader can just say "you lost" and cash the ticket anonymity?

              Wherever large amounts of money lie, there will be an entangled ball of slime covered lawyers, writhing and undulating and slithering in orgasmic splendor at the possibility of getting someone else's money away from them.

                Now that sounds just down right despicable.

                  I'm shocked, appalled and rife with indignation at the very thought of a slime encased ball of squirming, writhing lawyers, undulating at the prospect of getting someone's money.

                    Lets be honest guys. We love reading about the winners and their unique stories. How they turned a mistake ticket into a fortune, or how a work pool finally won when one guy pulled out and so on. LP is popular because of these very stories. IMHO anonymity is good but it would eat into the euphoria that drives jackpots up faster.

                      But I don't have to know their names in order to find the stories interesting.

                          I  agree with you on this  -  I am thankful that this bill passed too!  Thanks to the politician that introduced this bill.

                            All the people cheering this, bet you would not be so cheerful of this if you were on the other side of this and someone screwed you out of your share of millions and you never knew or found out too late because they other party was able to stay anonymous. 

                            What if you had sued someone and got a judment against them in the past, maybe you were hit by a drunk driver or a business partner screwed you out of money, now if they won the lottery you would never know and they get away scot free with your money. 

                            You people really have no intelligence or you would clearly want the lottery to be as transparent as possible. 

                            Is being anonymous really that big a deal? There are thousands of people out there that are worth hundreds of millions of dollars and billions of dollars and everyone knows who they are and they are just fine.

                              Hmmm...good point...Winners should be anonymous so people who like to play in pools should figure out how to do it correctly otherwise they would get screwed.

                              As far as legal settlements go,  I am sure a lawyer could figure out how to set  them up so that you could collect if the person ever got money.

                              I don't know that for a fact but you sure seem to know everything!
