"The lottery is a business so they want to sell tickets, they want to put a face to the win", he said.

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

New Hampshire lottery executive director Charlie McIntyre said that the Powerball victor must abide by the disclosure laws "like any other", in February.

The woman, identified as Jane Doe, signed the ticket following the January 6 drawing, but later learned she could remain anonymous through a trust.

She is suing the state lottery commission to be exempt from New Hampshire's "Right to Know Law" which intends to provide transparency and assure the public that winners aren't associated with the lottery.

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".

In 2016, the state's victor of a $487m US Powerball jackpot chose to remain anonymous, claiming the prize through a trust facilitated by a local law firm.

This victor marks the 11th Powerball jackpot victor in New Hampshire history. "We recognize the tremendous interest this prize has generated but hope you appreciate our client's desire to maintain a sense of normalcy by keeping her name confidential".

"We are tremendously happy for our victor and we wish her and her family all the best".

The lawsuit describes the anonymous victor as an "engaged community member" who wants to continue to shop and attend public events "without being known or targeted as the victor of a half-billion dollars".

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.

Weaver also notices that many female lottery winners are keen on anonymity: "Thankfully theLotter is experienced in handling such privacy-related requests".
