Never heard of this, please post links to the articles...

I can think of one off the top of my head.....one of the winners of the $587.5 million Powerball in 2012. The guy from Arizona...lottery said he wished to remain anonymous, but the Associated Press filed public records request and revealed his name.

If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

2016: -48.28% (13 tickets) ||
P&L % = Total Win($)/Total Wager($) - 1

    This story does not match up with what I was stating...No Nod

     

    The only states that appear to allow their lottery to keep a winner’s identity secret are

    Delaware, Kansas, Maryland, North Dakota and Ohio, according to the site.

     

    Arizona is not listed here!!!

    This man tried to stay anonymous in a state that doesn't allow it.

     

    Has anyone been outed from the anonymous states listed above?

    I still have not heard of that...

    ...the secret to Luck is never to trust it...

    2012 wins:$20 loss:$200  2013 wins:$100 loss:$270  2014 wins:$360 loss:$273

      The liberal press will always try to out you just to get a story even if it costs you your life.

      Then they'll do a story on your mysterious murder.

        Maybe reread this thread? I said that those states (DE, KS, MD, ND, OH) that allow anonymity are the only ones that state explicity in their laws that a person can remain anonymous.

        Some people in this thread believe that South Carolina is an anonymous state because in the Lottery Post article that we are discussing, this person wishes to remain anonymous. I've been saying throughout that they can wish it all day long, but that anonymity is not allowed (much like Arizona and all the other states sans those 5 above mentioned) and that their name will come out with a freedom of information request.

            Interesting belief to have. I'm more inclined to want to know the draws and players are legitimate. Will though support Lottery winners being left to privacy after claiming and NOT being hounded. Let them have their five minutes of fame and then quietly march along to their final place of peace.

              Can't they get his name from a Freedom of Information request?  Like that guy in Kentucky.  The lottery said they'd keep his name confidential but didn't tell him anyone could get the info by asking the state for it.  They did and he was 'outed' in no time.  And a little honked off too.

                Missed your question.  A few years ago a winner in Kentucky was outed after the lottery told him 'they' wouldn't release his name.  However, a records request by media outed him shortly after he won.

                    LOL  I Agree!

                  if i ever win a jackpot i'm a gonna say this is the first time i ever played the lottery 

                  so i can get fan mail Party

                  ROFLMAO. That's funny. I've never even thought of doing that, but it definitely makes for a great story.

                  I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

                  The odds are about the same.

                    I like watching the press conferences and seeing the tickets. There's no need to post their real names and addresses. It's good advertising for State lotterys.

                      Now I know it's possible to remain anonymous after winning in lottery in SC. It is good for the winner, he doesn't have to risk his safety. However, for the public if they don't know the winner they surely doubt if that winner really exist.
