Powerball Jackpot

$1.5 Billion Powerball Lottery Sees 3 Winning Tickets Sold In 3 Different States

We can all go back to our jobs today knowing that the opportunity to become a billionaire has passed us by. Well, all of us minus the 3 folks that are about to be swimming in money Scrooge McDuck style…

According to CBSNews:

An eye-popping and unprecedented Powerball jackpot whose rise to almost $1.6 billion became a national fascination will be split three ways.

Winning tickets for Wednesday night’s world record jackpot were sold in suburban Los Angeles, Florida and Tennessee, California lottery officials said

CBS News has confirmed that the third winning ticket was sold at a Publix store in Melbourne Beach.

The identities of the purchasers of the winning tickets wasn’t known.

Several hours went by and no other winning tickets were flagged.

The winning numbers were 4-8-19-27-34 and Powerball 10. Winnings can be taken in annual payments spread over decades or a smaller amount in a lump sum.

It’s going to be interesting to see if any of the winners reveal their identities when they claim their money.
