remain anonymous even if he or she claims their winnings through a trust?

 

I imagine there will be a greater amount of public interest in who wins the largest jackpot.

    At this point, I highly doubt that there will be one winning ticket to this jackpot.  However, hypothetically, I think it would be unlikely that they would be able to remain anonymous.

      There could be 10 winners in this.  I just don't like about this lottery.   What if this happens again?

        True, it is possible that there will be more then one winner.  It is also possible that there will be no winner in tonight's draw and we will see the PB Jackpot rollover to over $1Billion! Anything is possible.

        My question still remains: With the jackpot at record breaking level, is it possible for a sole winner (if there is one), to remain anonymous?

        I don't think so.

          I think it's going to be one winner tonight.

            if no winner, and they say it is about a 20-25% chance of that happening, jackpot on Wednesday will START at $1.3 billion

                An advertised jackpot of $900M means they're projecting sales around 370 million tickets. That would mean...

                28% chance of no winner;

                20% chance of single winner;

                33% chance of two-way split;

                14% chance of three-way split;

                4% chance of four-way split;

                1% chance of five-way or more.
