Massachusetts is not amongst the states that allow winners to maintain their anonymity. However, under the state laws, the winners can claim prize in the guise of trust. The trust becomes the legal titleholder and the person who has won the prize is the beneficiary. Lottery winners hire trustees for this purpose. This way their prize money is also secure and their identity also remains a secret.
In other lottery news, the recent two draws of the Mega Millions did not see any jackpot winners. This means the jackpot for the next drawing is going to be valued at $55 million.
While the Powerball jackpot saw no winners for the Saturday drawings, the jackpot has climbed to $123 million for the Wednesday drawings.
