Hi, Bruce. A picture is certainly not required. But it's not everyday that you'll win a big lottery prize, and most of our winners want the chance to celebrate the moment. For a lot of folks, that means taking a picture to remember the day and getting one of our fun, oversized checks. We want it to be a memorable time that the winners will always look back and remember fondly! Please remember that Iowa Lottery winners' information is public under the law, so we are required to provide the details about who won our prizes.

If you win a top prize do you have to have your picture taken

As the lottery’s vice president of external relations, I’m a member of the senior management team at the Iowa Lottery, where I’ve worked since 1999. I’ve spent my years at the lottery learning as much as I can about all the ins and outs of the lottery industry. I’ll put that knowledge to work here so I can share the behind-the-scenes details with you!
