      LOL, You beat me too it.  FYI coin. It also says all winners are subject to Ny laws,lottery rules&regulations. Nothing about interviews/media.

      "Nothing about interviews/media."

      Sounds like you didn't understand what they meant when they said "all winners are subject to Ny laws,lottery rules&regulations."

        I don't have a Missouri ticket at the moment but this is from the Missouri Lottery website. Interesting as I don't think Missouri is listed as one of the anonymous states for PB and MM.

        $5 Million Instant Lottery Prize Claimed

        A $5 million top prize from the Missouri Lottery “$5,000,000 Cash Extravaganza” has been claimed. A lawyer representing Wisepenny Enterprises, LLC, claimed the prize on April 20.
           
        The winning ticket was purchased at Discount Smoke Shop, 340 S. Sprigg St., in Cape Girardeau. Winners have the option of collecting the prize as an annuity or as a $3.1 million lump sum. Wisepenny Enterprises, LLC, is taking the cash prize. 
           

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

        Lep

        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 know someone already summarized what's written on NY tickets, but here's the exact text:

          IMPORTANT INFORMATION

            Schenectady? That would be quite the drive from NYC... Somehow I never considered anything really BEING in Schenectady every time I drive through it... but it's a far piece away.

              This is a kind of spinoff on PeteLawson's Claiming Anonymously thread.

              What does it say on the back of your tickets in regard to claiming and press conferences and release of information?

              One reply per state would do it, and would love to hear from those in the states that allow remaining anonymous.

              Illinois:

              This is part of the staement on the back of Illinois Lottery tickets:

              Important Information

              Players must be at least 18 years of age. This Lottery ticket is a bearer instrument, please sign immediately..........

              ......The holder of this ticket agrees to particiapte in interviews with Lottery public relations personnel and news media and grants permission to use his/her name and likeness in Lottery advertising. All Lottery tickets, transactions and winners are subject to applicable Illinois laws, Illinois lottery rules, and directives of the Lottery Superintendent.

              TN reads:  Reading the back of this ticket voids ticket.

               

               

               

               

               

              ..... No , just kidding.  it has nothing about interviews.. just where to go to collect and it will follow rules outlined by TEL

                  Every single lottery ticket I've seen has this very first sentence written on it. I'm not sure why Arkansas even bothers having it on theirs...it means absolutely nothing as they've proven already.

                        I know in Oregon they want you to do the press conference and have your name plastered all over the news like the family that won the $345 powerball jackpot.  The news was at their house before the end of the day waiting to see them and talk to them.  You can not claim a trust in Oregon either the lottery frowns on that.  I will do the press conference if I can have the money though.-weshar75

                          Only to someone who's actually *from* NYC and whose concept of the universe ends at the Tappan Zee Bridge...

                          (Sorry about that.  There's a state of constant tension between the NYC metro area and the rest of the state; the former often forgets that there's a whole state north of the five boroughs, and the latter tires of being ignored by the city and the rest of the nation.)

                          Schenectady, like most cities in upstate NY, is still smarting from the urban flight that started in the '60s.  The current generation is finding more value in urban living, so our cities are slowly coming back, but slow doesn't even begin to describe it.  But yeah, it can certainly seem empty at times.  And besides, it's not that far from Albany, it's not like it's in the middle of nowhere.

                          I've never been inside the Lottery's headquarters, but I've been by it a few times as it's just down the street from a performing arts theater (as opposed to a movie theater).  Last time I was out there, I saw what appeared to be a ground-floor TV studio that was set up for a drawing (I don't recall which game).  I don't know whether that's the main studio or an auxiliary one.

                          Anyway, that's just HQ.  There are customer service centers all over the state, so any potential winners aren't too terribly far from an office that they can walk into.

                            Performing Arts Theatre? I knew it. You're one of them ballet dancers, ain'tcha boy?

                            I've hated ballet ever since I was in school and they put a question on a test about ballet and I got it wrong.

                            The question asked what "The Nutcracker" was (which I know now is a Russian Ballet).

                            Welp, I answered that "The Nutcracker" was what the boys in gym class called what happened to you when you slipped on the balance beam.

                            I've hated ballet ever since.

                              Schenectady? That would be quite the drive from NYC... Somehow I never considered anything really BEING in Schenectady every time I drive through it... but it's a far piece away.

                              Think thats a drive ???...Try being down in the Keys and having to drive all the way to Tallahassee .. over 11 hrs drive time.......although the drive would be worth it.....
