Last time I checked, no. If you die, any remaining unmade payments revert to the lottery commission. Easy to get around though, form a corporation then claim the prize in the name of that corp. The corp can be passed on after you die.

Your better taking the lump sum in any case. with a little smart but conservative investing you'd end up with more net value at the end.
Baby, you and me were never meant to be, just maybe think of me once in a while...
