She should have that right but in reality even if they didn't publish her name the fact would still get out.

She's going to lose that battle, but she may have saved some money by not having it invested yet.

She screwed up by signing the ticket - NH allows for blind trusts to claim prizes. But they do need to by law have the ticket available to the public. Totally sucks for her

I can't even imagine the ways winning that much money would make your life hell. Dont get me wrong, I would go through "hell" for that money but the BS you must deal with would be off the charts.

Wait until a day before the ticket expires. Will probably change her Tune.

I can see why after reading the article. Money brings out the crazies.

Maybe the loto commission should revise the conditions. If you want to remain anonymous then you are charged an additional % for this right. Like taking the cash value rather than the annuity.

CT has this requirement as well. The state requires that winners are publicly identified...of course if that winner had a daughter who was a minor she could go get a completely anonymous abortion with no parental permission, consent, or notification...

Pretty sure when you buy a ticket that could make you a half billion dollars richer, you should be ok with the perils that come with it.

I don't know why they require a big winner's name to be released. As long as it is legit, all jackpot winners should have the choice. (some states do allow anonymity or trusts)

Puts a big bullseye on your back. Does not knowing hurt anyone?

Her name is already on the ticket and whiting out or otherwise altering the ticket would invalidate it.

I would have no problem being identified as a lottery winner.

Matter of fact, I need to let all the blue-eyed flat-bellied gold-diggers know I'm open for business.

x2 half a billion dollars can buy you all of the anonymity you want!

Love people who agree to something then want to change the rules when it doesn't suit them.

You think her friends or family aren't going to rat her out once she disses them on their ''share' requests???

Suck it up buttercup! Take your money, change your name and move out of town.

Anyone with any sense would consult an attorney immediately after finding out they are going to get a half billion dollar windfall. Doing that would have prevented the mistake of signing her own name on the winning ticket.

She could still set up a trust and put all the money in it. Then, she can claim she gave all the money away. Only people who get to see the trust document would know differently.

The whole lottery thing is based on “You can win. Look at those people who won”.
Without that there is no belief that there will be a pay off to a real person.

The governing folk really like all the money they get from the misconceptions associated with these gambling ventures. They will support what ever makes more money for their department. Unless they are as stupid as I think they are. No, that could not be!

With 500 mil, or what is left after the taxes, Security can be purchased, even from your relatives.

Guess she hired her big time lawyers AFTER she signed the ticket...

She could have carried the ticket to a bank and placed it UNSIGNED in a safe deposit box and no one would have been the wiser.

Then, hire lawyers and figure out what to do.

She screwed up.

Question for the forum - how many of you are driving to New Hampshire to propose to her?
