Does the Florida Lottery announce lottery winners? Can you remain anonymous if you win the lottery in Florida?

However, the site notes that “the names of lottery winners claiming prizes of $250,000 or more will be temporarily exempt from disclosure for 90 days from the date the prize is claimed unless the winner otherwise relinquishes the prize.”
