The names of the winners weren’t released. The winners formed a trust to claim the prize, and the check was presented to their lawyers.
“This is life-changing generational money. The winners live in small communities in eastern Pennsylvania and desire to keep their lives as normal as possible. Maintaining anonymity is key to ensuring that normalcy. The winning ticket was a Quick Pick,” attorneys Kurt Panouses and Christopher Mahoney said in a joint statement.
