Wednesday's Powerball jackpot up to $348 Million

Posted March 09, 2018

The woman, identified only as Jane Doe, made the announcement through her lawyers at a press conference on Wednesday after the New Hampshire Lottery Commission handed over the winnings to the woman's lawyers through a trust fund. "While we don't know the winner's identity, we do know that her heart is in the right place".

Four local nonprofits are the beneficiaries of almost $250,000 thanks to the victor of the recent New Hampshire Powerball Lottery. Lawson's jackpot holds the record for the largest Lottery prize ever won in MI.

"The last thing we want to do is stand between a victor and her money", McIntyre said.

There was no victor for the $348 million jackpot, making the top prize at the next drawing on Saturday an estimated $385 million. The victor, who remains anonymous, claimed her prize of almost $560 million through the Good Karma Family 2018 Nominee Trust facilitated through the law firm of Shaheen & Gordon, P.A., with firm co-founder William Shaheen serving as trustee.

A New Hampshire woman who won $560 million in the Powerball lottery from a ticket she bought at a store in the Reeds Ferry section of Merrimack, New Hampshire got a wire transfer for her winnings, but her legal bid to remain unidentified is not yet resolved. The state is arguing that under the law, that means that her name is public information.

Executive director of the state lottery Charlie McIntyre said the interaction between the anonymous victor and the lottery office hasn't been adversarial.

Although the euphoria of a jackpot spurs many winners to publicly celebrate, Mr Kurland warned that when a person suddenly has so much money "everything changes".

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

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

"On behalf of the Good Karma Family 2018 Nominee Trust, we are pleased to accept this Powerball prize", said Shaheen.
