Sorry if this has been discused already (couldn't find it if so), but regarding reamining anonymous - what if someone from a state that allows you to remain anonymous goes to another state to play PB or MM and hits a jackpot?

What rules would that come under, the state where the ticket was purchased, or the person's home state? 

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.

      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.

        Now what?

        What?

        (Remember when you posted about a theorhetical law suit where a person became famous for winning their right to remain anonymous?)
