The winner of a $20 million New Jersey Lottery Pick-6 jackpot plans to keep it all in the family and share the winnings with 19 relatives.
A lottery spokeswoman says the Ocean County woman has 16 brothers and sisters who range in age from 53 to 76. She also wants to share it with three children of a brother who died a few years ago.
The winner has decided to take a lump sum payment of $14 million, which is worth about $10 million after taxes.
The family will be introduced during a news conference in Beachwood on Thursday afternoon.
The lottery says the family’s patriarch emigrated from Norway in the early 20th century and married a woman from the Jersey shore. They set roots in Ocean County.
