After two exciting weeks in the small Florida town of Zephyrhills in the USA, the winner of that amazingly large amount of money has finally been revealed. Because it was known where the winning ticket was bought, just not by whom. Now we know it was a lady called Gloria M. who can pocket the 590 million USD, which is the largest Powerball jackpot ever to be won on a single ticket.
The Powerball lottery in the US has a minimum jackpot of 20 million USD and can rise above 300 million. Out of all the states 44 take part in it, and the lottery tickets in those states are sold with one single jackpot. Everyone dreams of one day winning the lottery, but unfortunately the odds of that happening are 1 in 175 million. The lottery prizes in our online casinos may not reach that amount, but the chances of winning are also better. So don’t be disheartened!
Winners usually choose for a payout over 30 years, but considering her age Gloria has decided to receive a lump sum of $370 million, over which she will still have to pay tax. She has not yet revealed what she is going to do with all that money.
