There will always be discussions on whether the identities of lottery winners should be revealed. Some say that revealing winners’ names helps keep the lottery honest; it makes it hard for crooks to rig lottery games. On the other hand, some people say winners’ identities should be kept secret for security purposes.
In Israel, lottery winners can choose to go public or remain anonymous. Despite this, the lottery encourages winners to keep away from the public eye and even gives out masks. They help ensure personal details about the winners are presented in such a way that they cannot be identified by the public. In the US, most states require winners to go public. With the last Powerball draw giving more than $500 million to three winners, you can expect the discussion to heat up.
