I was just curious about the topic of anonymity, and I came across this article
Only three states allow winners to be completely anonymous under ALL circumstances whatsoever (Delaware, North Dakota, and Kansas). Some other states will allow it, but only if you have an attorney claim the prize or until a Freedom of Information Act is requested. If you find any other articles about this topic, let me know.
Smart lottery winners form trust to claim their winnings. They send an attorney to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize in trust, so that ONLY the name of the trust is revealed. And they tell NO ONE, especially relatives.
If you ever win a lottery and you are single, the only person you should ever marry is someone who was truly in love with you BEFORE you won the jackpot!
