I don’t mean avoiding taxes nor letting the IRS know about any winnings. I mean, after winning the Lotto, is there a way someone can avoid letting the general public know who the winner is?



  • Yes there is, but it’s unlikely anyone who can’t spell anonymous could pull it off.

  • Not really…when you buy the ticket you agree to allow the use of “you” were you to win, ie, your name, likeness, etc.

  • Yes, someone did it in Birmingham. They have claimed it anonymously and all the media can report is that they claimed it in Birmingham.

    yes but it depends on lottos you play – some don’t require you to reveal your personal details e.g. like Superena lotto or Euromillions

  • Ask me about The Beatles

    No. Since federal law requires you to pay taxes, you’ll have to give them your SSN to get your $$$.

  • Yes, I actually won a $2000 scratch ticket, and I had to go to lottery department to claim it..
    They ask you if you want your name to be on media, just say no
