Sounds to me like you're the sheep who thinks we should all go along with whatever the government wants without question.

Players are the ones paying the "stupid tax" every time we buy a ticket, and then paying more taxes when we win.  We help fund state education and other public services entirely voluntarily.  So if we want a change, we have the right to ask for it.

The lotteries will still announce winners, just not as many names will be mentioned.  I think there will still be plenty of people who will want to do the press conferences to satisfy the curiosity of some.  And personally, if I won and was able to keep my name out of it, I would probably allow the release of some of my personal details that people love to know.  If my name is released, they won't be getting one single other tidbit.

      I really hope this trend catches on countrywide. The flip side of this is there will be no winner stories that websites such as LP rely on to attract web traffic.

      That money's gone fo ever

        There is an app for that maringoman.
        Simple state the following:
        A short balding Latino man was the winner of the $120 mil PB in Anytown last night..
        A shapely Caucasian blonde woman in her late 20's from Anytown was the winner last night in the $210 mil MM jackpot.
        A Tall African American with 2 diamonds in his left ear & a gold " grill" was the winner of the $120 mil PB jackpot from Anytown last Saturday. .
        See...problem solved.

          First of all I am not a sheep, secondly I have never had a discussion with you. Last time I checked I am entitle to my opinion and I think a jackpot winner should have that right to remain anonymous if he/she or they choose.

          Now the reason I want to remain anonymous is because I have two teenage boys that I want to protect. There have been to many stories of nutjobs threatening to kidnap children of jackpot winners.

          i think you're leading the league in hitting the i agree button. that makes you a sheep. you don't have your own opinion you just agree with the flock. there have not been manystories as you say of nutjobs threatening to kidnap jackpot winners children. why do you play if you live in fear of nonsense like that? i don't think you better let your teenage sons go away to college because some nut job with a gun might go on a shooting spree. just keep them at home forever and shield them from society's harm. if they go into the service maybe you could follow them to afghanistan and walk in front of them so they won't be harmed. trust me if by someone astronomical chance you hit the lottery people will find out. this anonymous nonsense will not work whether you have the right to it or not. the general public has a right to know who the winners are. beyond that it is really none of their business what you do with the money.winners identity must be disclosed to protect the integrity of the lottery.

              then this website will suffer a quick and sudden death. no more stories no more website traffic. no more lottery books sold etc. life is a crapshoot anyway. a wrong way driver on the thruway could doom you quicker than getting your name released because you won a lottery. i would say don't play if you live in such fear.
