you have the right to be unknown!
I can't speak for all states, but here in Pennsylvania, the following information is PUBLIC domain...
Winner's Name : Winner's Home Town : Game Won : Amount Won : Date Won
Photos and interviews are optional, not mandatory...
by forming a trust, you can replace the Winner's Name with the Trust's name, hence retaining anonymity... I checked with the PA lottery commission and they are O.K. with that.
I am almost certain that it is this way in all lottery states with the exception of Delaware (Which allows winners to remain anonymous). I think it's putting winners in potential danger and is irresponsible, but the state claims that it is to prove the integrity of the system.
Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.
