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.

This while thing makes no sense. There is no way a pool of 40 ppl stays anonymous

MD anonymity would be just a bonus.. The main pint is to have a pool.

You pay tax on any winnings over $600.

Doesn't need to be for me.

Just a waste of yiddishe gelt. Buying 1 ticket or 40 tickets doesn't change the odds from being statistically insignificant and it shows a lack of emunah that would be most useful in a case like this.

it does however significantly increase the odds of winning a smaller prize.

Also These type of Lotteries are meant for entertainment.  in which case this has been very entertaining and for $2 thats a steal.

So now you're more likely to win back a $4 prize for which you'll give back 10 cents to everyone?

You would get the same dreams of grandeur with 1 ticket as with 40 tickets, except you saved $78 from being thrown away.
I'd argue your "odds" would be better if you donated the $78 difference to a worthy charity rather than state coffers and used $2 for a single ticket.
