Can Arizona lottery winners collect their winnings anonymously?
I'm talking about big winnings (hundreds of thousands of dollars or more).
I'm trying to get information online, but the official lottery brochure says that your identity can only kept hidden for the first 90 days, but then another article says that a legislation was signed to let winners remain anonymous. I'm confused!

Arizona lottery FAQ:
If I win the jackpot, can I remain anonymous?
The names of persons or legally formed entities that are paid lottery prizes or winnings of $600 or more are held confidential for 90 days from the date the prize is awarded and are not a public record during that period. In accordance with Arizona Revised Statute (A.R.S.) §5-573(D), winners of $100,000 or greater may elect to keep their name permanently confidential. Information regarding the prize winner's city and county of residence is not confidential."
