New Jersey Lottery: New Jersey Lottery publishes report on 2020 anonymous prize claimsRating:
26 players from New Jersey made the millionaire list last year
By Kate Northrop
Yesterday, the New Jersey Lottery published a review of all prizes over $1 million claimed by anonymous winners in 2020 since the recent enactment of legislation that allows winners to choose to remain anonymous.
The law permitting winners to remain anonymous when claiming a prize passed on Jan. 21, 2020. The report details all winners who claimed a prize over $1 million since the new legislation was passed through the end of 2020.
All 26 prizes in the list were claimed anonymously.
The New Jersey millionaire list includes prize amounts ranging from $1 million to $202 million. The most notable prize claims include two Mega Millions winners, one for the $202 million jackpot from the Feb. 11, 2020 drawing and the other for the $124 million jackpot from the Jul. 24, 2020 drawing, as well as one Powerball winner of the $190 million jackpot from the drawing on Apr. 8, 2020.
Also included in the list are winners who played Cash4Life, Pick 6, Jersey Cash 5, and various scratch-offs.
The legislation that Governor Murphy signed last year allows winners the ability to choose to remain anonymous indefinitely, according to the Lottery, and the identity of winners shall not be included in materials available to public inspection under the State's Open Public Records Act.
However, winners of $600 or more must still disclose their identity to Lottery officials in order to claim a prize. Winners' identities are shared with State agencies so that claims may be reviewed for unpaid obligations such as child support, student loan arrearages, and back taxes. State and federal tax withholdings are also still applicable to certain prizes awarded.
Players who win less than $600 may claim their prize at an official licensed Lottery retailer, while winners of $600 or more must file a claim with the Lottery. The Lottery receives approximately 4,000 claims a month, a press release states.

Very well written article.
This speaks volumes for the right to anonymity. All the million dollar winners chose to remain anonymous.

Middlesex county is the 400lb jackpot Gorilla in NJ, with a combined haul of close to or over $400 mil. That's historic anyway you cut it.

Perhaps a mob in New Jersey is manipulating these multi-state big lottery jackpot games.

The winner of the $202 million MM jackpot claimed that huge prize 10 days (roughly 7 business days) after the draw. Wow.
