Now shows ALL scratcher prizes remaining . . example.  Previously only showed TOP prizes remaining.

 

2015 Arizona legislature passed SB1047:

"Stipulates the names of prizewinners receiving $600 or more are confidential and not public record for 90 days after the award of prizes or winnings"

    Why just 90 days? Should just be confidential. We hope "Ronnie" has nothing to do with this.

       I hope that the Governor signs it into law.  Has it passed the Senate yet ?

        They tried for full confidentiality last year; the bill didn't make it out of committee. It's a lot easier to sell skeptics on "give them time to prepare for publicity" than on "keep the names away from the public entirely".

         

        And yes, the governor has signed it.

            IF I WIN THE JACKPOT, DO I HAVE THE OPTION OF REMAINING ANONYMOUS?

             

            Jackpot winners are given the option of participating in a press conference. Many of our past jackpot winners have enjoyed this opportunity, and it usually eliminates receiving multiple calls from the media. The Arizona Lottery is required to release the winner's name, city of residence, game, and amount won upon request, so total anonymity is not possible.


            We ask each winner, no matter the amount, for a quote about their winning experience; the quote will not include your name if you prefer to remain anonymous.

              Most state legislators don't think playing lottery games is "real" gambling and the anonymity rules are not the same as for other types of gambling. Some states have Public Records Acts so it's not that easy to decide who gets anonymity and who doesn't.

                I'm sure "Ronnie" will be going public as soon as he wins, regardless what the law says about it.
