Wouldn't it be tempting with such information, that if the winner chose not to come forward right away, for them to
submit to the public eye a photo of the winner buying their ticket? Or announce: Do you know this individual?
Why give any time to claim then? If they use the excuse they are trying to locate the winner because they may have discarded
their ticket or may not know they won, I'd only take that as being forced to surface.
That is a LOT of money. Sometimes things happen to people with a lot of money. The winner in CA doesn't even have control
over their own winnings and remaining anonymous - they are being no better than investigated and I don't care what rights
the lottery has, they are taking some away from the winner by seizing the tapes.
I certainly would not want to be identified, I'd like to do that at my own pace since the rules state exactly how much time I
have to claim my prize and decide how I want it to be paid to me.
A historic jackpot amount should not strip winners of their rights and choices.
