The announcement was made during a press conference today at the New Hampshire Lottery headquarters in Concord. Jane Doe was the 11th Powerball jackpot victor in New Hampshire history - and her massive payout is the biggest in state history.
Executive director of the state lottery Charlie McIntyre said the interaction between the anonymous victor and the lottery office hasn't been adversarial.
