International Lotto Wins – To Tell Or Not To Tell?

The LuckyLottos.com team believes that every winner should have the right to privacy and anonymity after scooping a huge online lotto jackpot. That’s just one of the many advantages lottery players have by playing with us. Western Virginia seems to think otherwise. Continue reading to hear what their explanation for this compulsory uncovering of a winner’s identity. 

The times of accepting big lottery cheques at headquarters may soon come to an end in West Virginia as players and past winners have spoken out about their discomfort in having to reveal their identities. 

Winners and players are now hoping to have a bill integrated in the system where they don’t have to make public appearances and claim their prize in public if they don’t want to. That is, if the bill receives enough support, then only can it be transformed into a set law by the State Capitol. 

So why is the West Virginia lottery refusing the bill? According to John Myers, director of the lottery, he said “there should be an expectation of transparency among players.” 

He added: “They want to know that, when we tell them there’s a grand prize winner, that we actually give that money away and that it’s to somebody that played the game and followed the rules. That’s important to all our players.”

The reveal of winners’ identities is also important according to the lottery because it helps drive sales. It encourages players never to give up, and to put a face to lottery winners. It makes it more real for them, that ordinary people also stand a chance to change their lives. 

“This really sets us apart as a big game, a big reward and people know that and that’s why, I think, we see the place on that game (Powerball and the like) that we don’t see in some of the others,” John explained. 

The bill is now pending review in the Senate Judiciary Committee. If this bill gets passed and turns into a law, that means all other USA lotteries like Powerball, MegaMillions, or even Hot Lotto, could give their winners anonymity. There would be a Freedom of Information Act exemption, whereby a winner can choose to either go public or not. 

Any winner from an American lottery would have the right to contact the lottery director at headquarters in writing or even via email. After that, it would then be up to the director to schedule an appointment at any county or state lottery office to confirm the winning numbers and secure their anonymity application. 

"If we don't do it all at one time, sometimes they'll have people knocking on their doors wanting an interview for weeks at a time after they've won it. It tends to get it all over, they can get on with their lives," John added. 

So far, Delaware, Kansas, Maryland, North Dakota, Ohio and South Carolina are the only American states that allow winners to stay anonymous. 

What do you think? It's definitely some food for thought. Luckily you don't have to worry about a thing with us. When using our sterling service, you are granted absolute anonymity for any major win you are to receive in the near future.
