I assume the rules would be enforced by the Lottery of the state where the game was played. Why would where you live make a difference?
Press releases, for one.
I know some states say that the back of the ticket, which must be signed to collect a jackpot, is an agreement to a press release, but what if a person from a state that lets you remain anonymous wins in a state that doesn't.
So, the non-anonymous state releases the story to the newspapers in that state - the papaers on the person's home state pick up the story on a wire service- but, according to the rules of the home state, they wanted to remain anonymous.
(Remember when you posted about a theorhetical law suit where a person became famous for winning their right to remain anonymous?)
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.
