The massive $162 million Mega Millions jackpot given away on the 22nd of December has been won by a married couple from Long Island, New York but their identities have been kept under wraps for the time being in an attempt to avoid them being besieged. The winners of the Mega Millions remain anonymous for the time being but it’s only a matter of time before the world finds out who they really are.

When big lottery jackpot winners attempt to keep their identities a secret it is often a futile attempt as the world’s big media agencies see uncovering them as something of a challenge. It’s perfectly understandable that big lottery winners would want to keep news of their good fortune a secret as so many of them receive constant begging letters and requests for money from all sorts of people.

Michael Solomon, a lawyer working on behalf of the $162 million Mega Millions lottery jackpot winners said “This is a holiday blessing for this family. They were very exhilarated by the win” but was very careful not to give way too many details. What we do know is that the couple are married, they live in Suffolk County, New York, they bought a quick pick ticket from a store in Rocky Point and after taxes they would receive roughly $60 million if they claim the lump sum award.

So we don’t know the identities of the massive Mega Millions jackpot winners but if past experience tells us anything we will find out at some point, most likely sooner rather than later. If you want the chance to win a huge lottery jackpot you can buy tickets to all of the world’s major lottery draws right here at Online Lotto. Then, if you win millions of dollars you can see for yourself just how hard keeping the news of your good fortune a secret.
