Hi, Rose. Under state law here in Iowa, lottery winners' information is public. That has been the case since our lottery's start in 1985. I think state lawmakers put that language in place as an additional security feature to ensure the integrity of lottery games.

Why can't Iowans that win a jackpot remain anonymous ?

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!
