Ways to stay anonymous:

1. Don't cash the ticket.  Instead, frame it with one of the numbers obscured, and hang it in your office. 
2. Give it to someone you can trust, like me to cash in.

People find playing the lottery as a group more enjoyable and that it builds camaraderie.

a single ticket. Possibly part of a group of tickets and buyers. (If they can find it....)  8) Maybe we'll find out in 6 months.

Hopefully the winner didn't throw his ticket away thanks to a stupid mistake by the Massachusetts State Lottery.
