We may never find out the identity of the mega-millionaire, however.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed a law in January that allows lottery winners to stay anonymous.

Former Governor Chris Christie vetoed the legislation during his tenure in 2013, arguing that it would "undermine the transparency that provides taxpayers confidence in the integrity of the lottery and its games," according to nj.com.

New Jersey joined a handful of other states including Arizona, Delaware, Georgia and Kansas that allow lottery winners to hide their identities if their winnings exceed a certain amount, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

The glare reserved for lottery winners can be intense.

"If that person wants that spotlight they can elect to have it, but if a person wants their privacy they should be entitled to it," Assemblyman John Burzichelli said, according to nj.com.

Burzichelli said the law would prevent lottery winners from being "hounded and harassed as a result of their newfound wealth and fame."

"In some cases, lottery prizes have resulted in winners being robbed and even killed," Burzichelli said.

The law exempts names and addresses from the state's open records laws, but state agencies are still able to share the information internally to collect child support, public assistance overpayments, and debts, according to nj.com.
