The Mega Millions jackpot for tonight is a staggering one billion dollars. Tomorrow night's Power Ball jackpot is a crazy $470 million dollars.
So if you win the big money, can you remain anonymous? It depends. Only six states allow you to do so: Delaware, Kansas, Maryland, North Dakota, Ohio and South Carolina. In New Jersey, in 2013, Governor Chris Christie vetoed legislation that would allowed lottery winners to remain under-the-radar.
It's possible to set up a trust before you claim your cash, but this can be a complicated process. There is precedent for it in New Jersey.
If you're holding a ticket or two for one of these monster jackpots, good luck!
