Lotteries are organized all over the United States. The state of Pennsylvania recently welcomed a new lotto millionaire. On a beautiful Saturday night this very lucky person won 456,7 million dollars, which is about 368 million euros! He or she has written Powerball Lottery history with this. It’s the biggest winner ever living in Pennsylvania. However: the new multi millionaire still has to come forward.
Winner lives in Manheim
It’s not clear if the winner is already aware that he or she has won. The Pennsylvania Powerball Lottery is dying to meet it’s luckiest player! Perhaps some facts will lead to this person. He or she has bought the winning ticket at the Speedway Store Manheim, Lancaster Country. It’s a small place located about 75 miles west of Philadelphia. The winner still has some time to claim the prize. It expires one year after the draw date.
Participating in a prize pool or individually
Little is known besides the place where the ticket was bought. It could literally be everyone. Some players like to participate in a so-called lottery pool with friends, family or colleagues. The advantage of a pool is that the winning odds are higher. People buy a lot of tickets together and if there’s a win, they share the prize according to the shares everyone has. An individual is usually not able to buy so much tickets. Besides that, it’s a lot of fun to play together.
Powerball Lottery winners in the past
In the past there have been several Powerball Lottery top prize winners from Pennsylvania. It was the 18th time actually. However, no one has ever won so much money in the state. Perhaps the 19th winner will appear sooner than yoy think. It could happen during the the next draw on Wednesday or Friday. Powerball usually has a Jackpot over 40 million euros. The amount of money rises when there’s no Jackpot hit. Are you enthusiastic but no participant yet? It’s possible to buy a ticket online or at a local retailer. If you win on Friday, it would be the best start weekend ever!
Lump sump or annuity
Lottery winners can usually choose between two ways to receive their money. The first option is ‘lump sump’, which means that all the money is added to your bank account immediately. In that case you receive 273.9 million dollars. It’s also possible to receive 456.8 million dollars divided over 29 years. This option is known as ‘annuity’. his has the advantage that you cannot spend your money all at once. You live comfortably for the next 30 years (and probably afterwards as well). Be aware of the fact that you have to pay a gambling tax over lump sump and annuity. With annuity you have to pay taxes over your amount of money each year.
