I worry for their safety.

👆 That part... especially for the man with 263,666,666. 😬😳

Why would anyone allow their full name and the amount won to be published? Isn't there an option to remain anonymous?

Miesposa said that even if they had the option, most Dominicans would choose the photo op... just for the flaunt... Dominicans love to floss..😎🇩🇴.... apparently.

One would think they would use a legal representative to receive those funds, but I don't know if you can do that here.

One would think that after a lifetime of being exposed to national lotteries people would have a basic understanding of how they work. When someone claims a prize they have to sign a receipt/contract that the lottery corp. can use their photo, name and some basic personal information for marketing/public reporting purposes. And no you cannot send a designate to pick up your winnings for the aforementioned reason.

The brother of my ex in Puerto Plata won big in the lottery,about 12 million pesos. The very first thing he did was contact everyone in his family and told them that he wasn't giving any of them a single peso,not even his mother.

I know of a similar case. They invested it in CD's and told everyone it couldn't be touched. (but didn't mention the monthly payments. lol)

I hope that the guy that won the 263 milion had a decent income before and knows at least some basics about $, otherwise it will be all gone within 3 years max.

Does anyone know if in the DR the winners will be taxed on their winnings? Also, can they decide like in the US to not receive the whole amount at one time, but break it down over x amount of years?

Loteka allow winners to remain anonymous. They have a photogallery that you can enjoy with their funny photos:

DR
There's that joke when a guy wins lottery and then says "Since I won all my neighbours are millionaires too!", the other one says "Aaww that's so nice that you shared your wealth with your friends and neighbours", the winners says "Fu*k no!! I moved into a rich neighbourhood where only millionaires live".
