Lottery: Seaford store sells $1M Powerball winning ticket

The victor, known in court filings as "Jane Doe", has sued the state to maintain her anonymity.

The woman filed a lawsuit against the state to remain anonymous, but lawyers were allowed to pick up a lump sum of $352m in Powerball winnings. She is from southern New Hampshire.

After learning she had the winning ticket from the January 6 drawing, the woman signed the back of the ticket without realizing that doing so would result in her name and address being made public. In 2016, a New Hampshire player won a $487 million winning Powerball ticket purchased at the Hannaford Supermarket in Raymond. Jane Doe was the 11th Powerball jackpot victor in New Hampshire history - and her massive payout is the biggest in state history. "She just wants to do good things", said William Shaheen, one of the woman's lawyers and the trustee for her Good Karma Family Trust of 2018.

Under New Hampshire law, a lottery winner's name, town and prize amount become public information.

"The New Hampshire Lottery is excited to award yet another Powerball jackpot to some very fortunate Granite State residents", New Hampshire Lottery director Charlie McIntyre said in a statement.

In 2015, Craigory Burch Jr., the victor of a $434,272 jackpot in Georgia, was killed in his home by seven masked men who kicked in his front door.

"A lot of them try to keep their personality and not change too much but obviously their lives have changed", he said.

Over the years there have been many cases where a lottery winner's luck goes bad. The 1997 victor of $31m, Billie Bob Harrell Jr, committed suicide. This can cause friendships and relationships to be torn apart, which can lead a person to crave anonymity. "It adds a needed legitimacy to the game".
