This may explain, though I can not verify, why the winning CA superlotto ticket for $14 mil sold on 12/20/2014, by Mary’s Little House of Coffee in Glendale was not reported as claimed. If it had continued to be unclaimed, they would still be announcing it and looking for the buyer. I havent found any news items or items in the lottery press releases beyond Feb 2015

    If you live in California, please contact your Governor and local politicians. Let them know that it is very dangerous for winners to have their identities revealed to the general public.

    I would tell my name but, hide my face or give last name county is fine. That's it. So yea i agree myturn. Real talk on that. Should have a choice when it come to the money we win. But in Cali, i see that's not the case. peace 1

      Russ Lopez , our California Lottery spokesman, has said ,"You have the right to refuse the press interview." I am planning on giving only what is required to be released to the public which is my name. My home address, my phone number, cell number, and any personal details that I do not authorize to be released will remain secret. 

       The Lottery office will take a picture of the winning ticket and place it on their website. My name will be there with it.

       I will be very quiet during the claim and validation process at the office. Taciturn or "not talkative". 

       I found some of the above on You tube. California claims process , I believe.Approve

        There is a winner's handbook that can be downloaded from the site that cover this.  Again, what I wonder about is your name being flashed over every computer screen in every donut shop, gas station, 7/11 for who ever knows how long.

          These could be reasons why there are fewer lottery players willing to go public with only their name. Like you said. You agree to the terms of the game.

           I would hope for a bigger winner to replace my name with their's. Or a large and popular news story that knocks you off and out of the public's eye.

            Looks like the winner did come forward to claim her prize.  Emphasis below is mine.  If anonimity is an option in Calif, why didnt they take it?  Questions...questions...

             

            Family Claims $14 Million SuperLotto Plus® Ticket Purchased in Los Angeles County

            SACRAMENTO – “We want the least amount of information released about our win as possible!” So there you have it. This release will be brief, because the low-key family that won the $14 million SuperLotto Plus draw from February 7 wishes to remain as anonymous as they can. So unfortunately, we don’t have a great story to share.

            What we can tell you is Judy Markarian, who bought her very lucky ticket, claimed that huge multi-million dollar prize at the California Lottery’s Van Nuys office last Thursday (February 12). She showed up with family members, who chipped in to help pay for the $10 worth of SuperLotto Plus tickets Markarian purchased for the draw.
