Can Florida Lottery Winners Remain Anonymous?

According to the Florida Lottery website, winners cannot remain anonymous: “Florida law requires the Florida Lottery to provide information such as the winner’s name, place of residence, game won, date won, and amount won a third party requesting the information.”

However, the site notes that “the names of lottery winners claiming prizes of $250,000 or more will be temporarily exempt from disclosure for 90 days from the date the prize is claimed unless the winner otherwise relinquishes the prize.”

Lottery experts and lawyers have said there are ways to remain anonymous if you win.
