Mavis Wanczyk, a hospital worker from the western MA town of Chicopee, was announced Thursday as the victor of the biggest undivided lottery jackpot in US history. According to some financial experts, there are a variety of options for Wanczyk to put her money in, and the most important aspect is diversification in her investment so that the money grows forever and lasts forever.
The winning Powerball ticket was one that Wanczyk picked herself, using a combination of family birthdays and her lucky number, four. He said the Chicopee store will receive $50,000 for selling the winning ticket, he said.
"We're going to give all of the money to charity", proclaimed Bob Bolduc, founder of the chain that owns the Pride Station & Store in Chicopee. Sweeney issued an apology for the confusion created by the error, but said lottery staff remained thrilled that a jackpot winning ticket and two $1 million winning tickets were sold in MA - one of those at the Watertown location. "We were as surprised as everybody else". "We really believe in supporting local charities". However, there was no victor for the $40 million drawing held on August 26.
Amid all the talk about sudden wealth, it's easy to forget that the goal of Powerball is to raise money for government programs in the 44 states where the game is played, as well as Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Players can choose their numbers or let a computer make a random choice.
The jackpot winning ticket was actually sold on the other side of the state. One of those lucky tickets was bought at the Speedway on Crew Drive in Emerald Isle. So, an individual's chances of winning don't increase, but the odds that someone will win do rise.
Face it, you're nearly certainly not going to win the jackpot, but players have much better odds of one in 25 of winning a lesser prize.
Kurland said, "She's now one of the world's wealthiest people and she has to start acting like it".
A $1 million ticket was sold at a Food Lion in Creedmoor, matching all five white balls.
The reason the prize is so large is because there hasn't been a Powerball jackpot victor since June 10. For the current jackpot, the cash prize would be $480 million.
