Delaware, Kansas, Maryland, North Dakota, Ohio and South Carolina all allow lottery winners to remain anonymous. So what about Florida?
No. Florida Lottery winners cannot remain anonymous. Florida law mandates that the Florida Lottery provide the winner’s name, city of residence, game won, date won and amount won to any third party who requests the information; however Florida Lottery winners‘ home addresses and telephone numbers are confidential.
There is one way to keep your name out of the news if you hit it big in Florida. You can set up a blind trust with an anonymous name and then have someone else, maybe your attorney claim the winnings in the name of the trust.
