The woman's lawyers have planned a news conference at state lottery headquarters in Concord later Wednesday.

Individuals go from living relatively normal lives to suddenly never needing to worry about money again, especially winners who take home as much as mystery victor "Jane Doe".

According to "lottery lawyer" Jason Kurland, only six USA states now allow lottery winners to remain anonymous: Delaware, Kansas, Maryland, North Dakota, South Carolina and Ohio.

The victor of a $559.7 million Powerball jackpot had her lawyers claim the winnings Wednesday amid a legal battle to keep her identity secret. "What little I can say, is that she and her family have had a longstanding commitment to their community and are thrilled to be able to enhance their impact through targeted philanthropy for generations to come". 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 judge has not yet ruled on the woman's request to stay anonymous.

A $2 ticket gives you a one in 292.2 million chance at joining the hall of Powerball champions.

Under New Hampshire law, a lottery winner's name, town and prize amount are public information.The anonymous victor signed the back of her ticket following the January 6 drawing, but in a complaint said she thought she was required to do so as directed by the state lottery commission's website.

"There are countless stories of other lottery winners who have suffered significantly after receiving their money, many of which could have been avoided if the winners' identities had not been published", the lawsuit states.
