Silly question.....maybe

 

So if the lottery website only prints partial names, does the "right to know act" give access to full name and other details???

Giving partial or full name is nothing compare to what NY lotto does to winners. NYC is the absolute worst place to win, not only u lose 1/3 to fed tax, u have to pay state even local tax. If that's not bad enough, there's a mandatory press conference if u win 1 million bucks or more. NY lotto will make sure everyone on the planet knows who u r.

I am surprised no winners in NY have been murdered yet like in FL.

    Yeah, no kidding.  Not to mention that every NY winner's pic is photo-bombed by that woman with the big cheesy grin, you'd think she was the winner.

      You mean her: 

      Yolaaaaaanda Vega.

       

      She'll blare your name all over the east coast. Maybe you could dress up as her, make people believe she won.

        If you live in New York, or any state that doesn't allow winners to remain anonymous, contact your local politicians and express your concern.

        We all get a lot out of lotteries!

          Most state have some type of a public information act and a very small number of people winning major jackpots compared to the number of deadbeat dads and convicted pedophiles.

                You have a better shot of getting something done by writing to Santa than to a politician.

                  NYC may be the absolute worst place to win a lottery jackpot, but you know what??? I don't care if they take almost 48% in taxes since I will be left with 52% of a multi-million dollar prize that I didn't have before.

                  I will take 52% of tonight's $348 mil ($226.1 mil cash value) jackpot and laugh all the way to the bank.
