Now you will really see what is meant by playing Powerball. This little story is about a woman named Mavis Wanczyk who won around SEK 6.3 billion, with the winning numbers 06, 07, 16, 23, 26 and PowerBall number 04. She had bought five tickets, of which three she had she chose the numbers herself on the last two she used the speed dial, she bought these at the Pride Station Store in ChicoPee, Massachusetts. The winning numbers managed to be the dates her family members were born and the Powerball number was her own lucky number. The 53-year-old resigned from her job at Mercy Medical Center in Springfield, which she had been working on for the past three decades right after the win. The deal that sold the ticket to her received about SEK 420 million to sell a winning ticket. She chose to receive a one-time payment, instead of a 29-year annuity and received SEK 336 million after tax.



One of the biggest gains from California


Jeff Lindsay became a multimillionaire of just one whim. He was on his way home to his home in Sacramento, California, one evening when he decided to go into Marietta Liquor & Deli and buy 10 tickets. He went home and placed the tickets on the kitchen counter until he heard that the winning ticket had been purchased in his town. The ticket was also one of the 10 largest jackpots ever in the United States, also one of the 7 largest jackpots ever awarded by Powerball. The profit was SEK 3.7 billion, but he was not the only winner. The store that sold the ticket to him also received SEK 8.3 million according to the lottery laws located in California. Jeff brought together a team of both legal and financial advisors to help him plan the future. He also asked people in his neighborhood not to give him attention but to give him and his family a more private life.

Now to what you've been waiting to read about: The world's largest jackpot. In 2016, the Powerball lottery awarded the largest jackpot ever. The jackpot of an incredible SEK 13 billion was shared between three parties, but here we will focus on the last ones who received their prices about 6 months after the draw. Mavin and Mae Acosta earned their profit of SEK 4.4 billion after consulting financial and legal advisors, which is recommended in the Powerball winner's handbook. Mavin and Mae bought their ticket from a 7 Eleven store in Chino Hills, San Bernardino and were lucky enough to match all 6 figures. The deal received a bonus of SEK 8.3 million for selling a winning lot. They chose to receive a one-time payment and received SEK 2.7 billion after tax. If they had chosen an annuity, they would have received SEK 4.4 billion in 30 years with an annual interest rate of 5% to meet the cost of living.
