PowerBall Jackpot winner is finally coming out victorious. This is a long fought court case where winner wanted to stay anonymous. Winners have the option to further stay anonymous or come out in public. The lottery officials want the winner to declare her name. The lawyer of the winner will be taking the cheque to further help her stay away from public eye. PowerBall has a history of creating Millionaires all across the US. In this case, the winner has won a staggering amount of $560 Million.
The lottery authorities still want the winner to come out in the open. The judge respects her privacy and further grants her anonymity. New Hampshire state lottery’s rules ask the winners to declare their name and address. But the lawyer says that the right to stay anonymous outweighs all the rules of the state. It is a very delightful situation for all the lottery followers. Many lottery players were following this case and further most of them are in favor of the woman. Almost every dollar of the winning amount is further going to non-profit organizations. $249 is going to Girls Inc. as well as End 68 hours of Hunger.
The winner says that even in future she wants to make further contribution to different NGOs. Though the woman had signed the back of the ticket but the court is asking the lottery officials not to make her name public as she is not comfortable. The lawyer is further going to the extent of saying that the officials were victimizing her.
There are many players across the US that have learned a lesson through this case. It is something new that shows the importance of staying aware after winning a Jackpot. Players need to make sure that they don’t sign the ticket if they further want to stay anonymous.
