    Excitement Grows Over Winning Powerball Ticket

    The winning $560 million Powerball ticket was sold in Merrimack, NH, but still no word on who will walk away with the massive jackpot. The winning Powerball numbers drawn Saturday night were 12-29-30-33-61 and Powerball 26.

    A New Hampshire woman who says she has a Powerball ticket that won a $559.7 million jackpot wants a court order allowing her to stay anonymous.

    The woman, identified as Jane Doe, filed a complaint last week in Hillsborough Superior Court in Nashua saying she signed the back of the ticket following the Jan. 6 drawing. She then contacted a lawyer and learned that she could have shielded her identity by instead writing the name of a trust.

    The New Hampshire resident says she made a huge mistake. She hasn't turned in the ticket yet.

    State lottery officials say they will proceed in accordance with state law, which says a lottery winner's name, town and prize amount are public information.

    A hearing is scheduled for Feb. 21.
