Can someone with "authority" clarify if South Carolina a true anonymous state? According to news articles in Google yes it is. But the South Carolina lottery website makes no mention of it.

Did the past winners simply ask for no publicity? Or is South Carolina  a "True" anonymous state. This is so confusing.

    These 6 States are committed to keeping lottery winners anonymity: Kansas,Ohio,Maryland, North Dakota, South Carolina & Delaware.

    People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.

      It is but must specifically be requested.  It is not 'advertised' because they prefer to have the winners plastered all over the media sites... it is a great promotion.  Remember though, due to lottery winners being paid with state funds, there are steps one could take through the freedom of information act to force the reveal of an anonymous claim.  For that reason I think it may be wise to request anonymity and claim through a trust.  It would be nice to see the proposed bill go through keeping winners identities private for a year before release.

      As info, I am not an "authority" on it though.  Just have inquired before and researched.

        I'm feeling a jackpot win coming my way!

        Yup. SC is a anonymous state. Someone won $400 million and claimed it anonymously.

        May the balls bounce in your favor!

          You can add Wyoming to that list. It's on their website that they will honor requests for anonymity.

            If you go to the SCEL website -at the bottom of the page click on claim form.  You have to answer yes or no to publicizing your name, picture etc.
