Should Lottery winners in every state, be allowed to remain anonymous?

I would seriously change my name to something more generic (my first and last name are unique and searchable with minimal rersults) and when they took photos of me I would age myself by about 20 years.

Yes. Otherwise, they can become a target. I read an article recently about someone who was murdered over their lottery winnings, and I'm sure it's happened again. Also, it allows them to continue living "normally" if they so choose.

It depends on the organization putting out the lottery. If the lottery stipulates that winners will be used in promotional packages and that buying a ticket is consent, then no. You buy the ticket with the knowledge that if you win, you will be used in their advertising.

Yes. I think it's silly that they have to share the name of the winner.

Or at the very least, not have to do a press conference.
