Don't forget some states (ones that do not allow you to claim anonymously) may allow you to claim via a trust. Some states will still release your name if someone goes through some sort of a written request process, but worse case scenario, it would buy you extra time to take precautions.

The United States of America won the lottery when we elected our new President Donald J. Trump. The Donald dazzles all!

    Delaware is 1 of them, not sure what the others are...Maryland ? Kansas ? maybe.

      This thread title made me think of a paraphrase -

      Most lottery players live quiet lives of desperation.

        Thanks PrinceRene, I knew someone famous had said it.

        Re: remaining anonymous, go to the OP of this archived thread from April 2012:


        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.

          Gotta be careful if you win in some states.  Aren't there some states out there that will list winner's full names, street addresses, date of birth, and even social security #?
