If I win a lottery, can I remain anonymous? 

 

We will honor requests for anonymity from winners. However, we certainly ho.pe winners will allow us to share their names and good news with other players.

    I hope the  Wyoming Lottery offers a subscription service for players outside the state. The right to anonymity would be popular across the US.

      Does your State Lottery allow winners to remain anonymous?

        My state(Louisiana) doesn't allow anonymity, but the winner can decline to have a photo taken if they so choose. The only way to be anonymous here is to claim as an entity.

          Jersey does not allow for it, there was a proposal for a 1 year hold on publishing the winners name but it failed.

          I'm not sure but I think you can decline the photo, someone not to far from me won and I hav'nt been able to find their photo.

          As for myself it doesn't matter anymore as I go to Delaware for the big $ games.

           

          I imagine the next proposal will be like Tx. you'll have to pay for it,

          they'll pass that in the middle of the night like they did the 10.8% state tax.

            Im glad mine doesnt...you'd have more to fear from your own family or friends more than the public at large anyways. I think we have the right to know if a real live person has actually won

              Illinois, no, but......

              A few years ago a female pharmacist won the Mega Millions. She told the Illinois lottery that if it was publicized as usual she'd face many malpractice suits filed by opportunists.

              So they let her go to a professional make up artist and she appeared as disguised as she could get.

              They whole is here on LP somewhere and probably on the 'net, too.

              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.

                  Someone the other day pointed out that when harm came to a jackpot winner, it was done by a close friend before the windfall or a family member. Do you think anybody could win a multi-million jackpot and not tell anyone?

                  And then there is store selling the ticket that possibly video tapped the transaction; will they bribe the owner and the clerks where they bought the ticket to remain silent?
