Hi, Susan. You're so right that we should all be aware of our personal safety and protect ourselves. But I will caution against overstating fears. There has never been an instance of anyone winning an Iowa Lottery prize and having an untoward experience related to that.

I feel that for the winner’s safety, their full name and city of residence should be confidential. I understand people want proof of who won, but what is preventing people from looking them up and confronting them?

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!
