UPDATE 3/6/12: THE 81-YR-OLD LOTTERY WINNER COMES FORWARD!
The Powerball jackpot reached over $325M on 2/11/12 and there was only one winner. The ticket was sold in Rhode Island, so let’s hope it was someone deserving of this huge fortune. It would sicken me if a 95-year-old or rich politician won.
Surprisingly enough, even with the new price of $2 per ticket, it rolled over since December and the largest multi-state lottery game reached a record. This is the highest cash payout to a single winner in the history of the Powerball.
Picking the winning numbers 1-10-37-52-57 MB 11 will change someones life forever. The winner is officially the luckiest person alive, with odds of one to like a billion (or somewhere thereof), they can walk away with over $200M if taken in a lump sum payout.
If they need a personal assistant, or someone to help manage their money, let’s hope they call me soon:). Congrats to the instant multi-millionaire…let’s hope they use it to better many lives.
Wonder when they will step foward?
