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.

It's fake. On the Facebook post he put #Photoshop

https://www.facebook.com/CoronaConcepts/

i figured that it was a copy from the (register of the) store where it was purchased.
If someone stopped into a 7-11 on the road in the middle of a 6 hr trip, they may not even know the name of the city that they bought their ticket to look at the winning numbers...

Walking around the office telling people I'm so relieved they didn't win and we can still work together and be friends.

I'm good at being friends.

some past winners have lost millions. I got the "10" Powerball, plus the number "4". So that wins $4. I paid the additional $1 power play for the ticket so the 'winnings' double to $8.

better than the guys who won.  They thought they were getting 1.5b, and will walk away with less than 200m after taxes. they lost 1.3b and it really feels like that for them.

Yes. I do know.  I am an accountant and work for a non-profit.

Nonprofit organizations pay tax on unrelated business income.

Lottery winning may be classified as such,  but as a general rule,  the do not pay taxes
Then you should know that UBIT doesn;t apply on things that they do infrequently among other exemptions

$200 mil is a great win. I'm pretty sure that they're happy, and laying low for a few days/weeks.

If you focus on being a boss, you will never be a leader. Leaders lead people to growth and improvement.
