Lotto Anonymity- A Privilege According to Lotto Officials

Last month’s $656 Million lottery winnings has dragged out a anonymity discussion among states as Maryland and Kansas are among a few (six to be exact) that allow their winners to remain anonymous, and this is exactly what the winners from the state had done. For those who aren’t in Maryland, Delaware, Michigan, North Dakota and Ohio, lotto officials view winner names as public information, therefore announcing them to everyone. Officials for the lottery however state that since the game is run with public funds all disclosure laws apply as to any system that is maintained by governments. "People like to see the people who are actually winning," said Katy Smith, a spokeswoman from the Oklahoma Lottery.
