The Connecticut Lottery publishes the list of prize winners of $10,000 or more on its winners list on its web site. According to its rules: “Winners cannot remain anonymous. The CT Lottery will consider a winner's name, city/town, and the prize amount a matter of public record, unless the winner produces a valid protective order or Address Confidentiality Program authorization card.”
While most winners claim prizes using their individual names, some winners come forward using other legal entities (i.e., trusts, business partnership) to claim their prizes - and to better shield their identities. In those instances, the Lottery will promote the winner using that legal entity's name.
