Yes, Delaware State law allows all Delaware Lottery winners to remain anonymous.

Do you offer Lottery subscriptions?
At this time, the Delaware Lottery does not offer this service.

This is great news, anonymity should be an automatic right for every lottery winner. Unfortunately, question 13 is a disappointment. Eventuality, a state lottery will marry the two concepts, anonymity and subscription service.

    Illinois offers subscription tickets. I get the e-mails every night for the Little Lotto results, have been getting them for three years. In those three years I think I've seen two subscription ticket winners.

     
    If you search "anonymous" here on the board there's been several threads about it.  I'm sorry I can't remember which memeber posted this, but there was one about someone winning a jackpot and having to go to court to reamin anonymous, and thus becoming famous for winning their case to remain anonymous.

      Yes, the Illinois lottery has a subscription service, but subscribers must have an Illinois mailing address to participate.

        It's great if you are in a state that allows that, but many still do not.

          Massachusetts has a subscription service, with no residency restrictions, but it doesn't allow anonymity to winners. Eventually, a state lottery will marry the two and it will be a winner.

            goldrush, I should stay anonymous unless I step forward to claim a winning jackpot ticket.
