This week, news came out that she's suing the New Hampshire Lottery Commission to "maintain her privacy and to have the trustee of a designated trust be the public face of the winning ticket". "She wishes to continue this work and the freedom to walk into a grocery store or attend public events without being known or targeted as the victor of a half-billion dollars".

The winner's attorney, William Shaheen, said in a statement he was collecting the prize in the name of the Good Karma Family 2018 Nominee Trust, which the victor established to serve as a legal mechanism to accept the money.

The Powerball prize was the second-largest for a single victor in Powerball history and the seventh-largest in USA lottery history.

A state court judge is still determining whether to allow the victor to keep her name out of the public record.

You still have time to buy a ticket, and potentially be tonight's big victor of the $348 million Powerball jackpot.

The mysterious victor of a $560 million lottery ticket in New Hampshire has finally claimed her prize, through her legal team, but she is still fighting to keep her identity a secret.

New Hampshire lottery rules require the winner's name, town and amount won be available for public information, in accordance with open-records laws and to increase trust in the lottery system. Our Iraqi US jackpot winner's identity was kept secret by the Oregon Lottery to protect his safety.

A New Hampshire woman who won a $559.7 million Powerball jackpot will be donating roughly $250,000 of her winnings to charities that feed hungry children and help young girls in the state, her lawyers said.

Over the years there have been many cases where a lottery winner's luck goes bad.

The winning ticket for the January 6 drawing was purchased at Reed's Ferry Market in Merrimack.
