Is California the only state where someone can be anonymous when claiming a jackpot? Not sure what the point is in making your name public after winning a jackpot.
No. Oklahoma and Delaware for sure also.
Somewhere in the News forum there's pictures of Delaware winners holding big cardboard circles in front of their face (Delaware's answer to "anonymous" I guess.
There's also a post in the News from sometime last year when a couple in Oklahoma won and just made a statement to the press that they wished to remain anonymous, let people know jackpots can be won, and to play but make sure they played responsibly.
Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.
There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
