As I understand the rules, no, it would be of no benefit.
First, it would be considered Tax Evasion, which comes with some pretty stiff penalties.
Second, as I understand it, each State that participates within the multi-state lotteries already have prearranged aggreements as to who gets what and how much, no matter what.
Third, as I understand it, the State the Ticket was purchased in is the state who is responsible for collection and payouts. And I think they could care less where your current (or future) residence is, they will get their cut before you see the check.
And Finally, if you should win a substantial pot to which this is an issue for you, I highly suggest you form a team of advisors consisting of a Tax advisor, an Accountant and a financial specialist Lawyer. This is assuming you feel you need assistance in protecting your newly found assets.
These are just my opinions, hope you do hit it big enough that you require such assistance.
