Gambling News and Lucky Stories

Missouri Gov. Mike Parson signed into law a bill passed by the state legislature to protect the personal information of lottery winners. This document, which has already become law, will come into force on August 28, 2021. According to the law, it is a crime to publicly disclose names, addresses, or other information that allows you to determine the winner of the lottery. For its commission, punishment is provided – imprisonment for a term of up to one year and a fine of up to two thousand dollars. The winner can only be named if he gives his written permission to do so. Before the law takes effect, the lottery operator may publish the names of the winners, the amount of their winnings, the type of lotteries they played, and the places where the lucky tickets were bought. As My Lucky Story reported, a Florida resident spent $20 to buy a lottery ticket and won a million. Earlier it became known that in the USA the jackpot – 730 million US dollars was broken in the Powerball lottery, the winner staged an intrigue, refusing to publicly reveal himself.
