Should Lottery Winner’s Identity Be Made Public? [Copy link] 中文

A lottery player in Taiyuan recently grabbed the Union Lotto top prize, a jackpot reaching 520 million yuan. With regards to such an astronomical figure, many netizens question the fairness of the lottery, with there even being someone saying it is “fabricating children’s fairy tales, to lure even more people into buying lottery tickets.”

The “Lottery Administration Regulations” enacted by the State Council in 2009 stipulates: The issuing, sale, and drawing of lottery tickets should comply with the principles of being open/public, fair, just, and honest/trustworthy; the lottery ticket issuance and sales agencies should provide society full disclosure on the issuance and sales of lottery tickets, and accept the public’s supervision. However, these regulations simultaneously stipulate: “The prize winner’s personal information should be kept confidential”.

This then presents a paradox: If the prize-winner’s information isn’t made public, how can the public effective exercise oversight? So, every time a huge jackpot is awarded, there is always controversy over whether or not the identity of the recipient of the huge jackpot should be made public.

How should a huge jackpot recipient’s right to privacy and the transparency of the lottery be balanced? What about your country? Does the relevant department make the detailed personal information about the recipients public?

Most certainly not. There's a strong possibility that it would leave them and their family open to all sorts of dangers ie: kidnapping and threats to name a few. Many in the UK have learnt this lesson, being inundated every day with hundreds of begging letters. And then of course there's the long line of lost family members and friends you never knew you have surface. Keeping it quiet works well,if you are clever enough and keep flying low.
