$50M Powerball jackpot to be split 3 ways

PowerballPowerball: $50M Powerball jackpot to be split 3 ways
44
Rating:

Three lucky winners will be able to spend the holiday weekend as newly-minted millionaires.

The owners of three winning Powerball tickets — from Delaware, Florida, and Louisiana — will divvy up Saturday's $50 million jackpot three ways.

Each winner will have the option of receiving a third of the jackpot in 30 payments over 29 years or a third of the $31.1 million lump sum. The winning Powerball tickets were purchased in New Orleans, Tampa, and a currently unnamed location in Delaware.

This latest jackpot marks a second consecutive win in Florida; last week's record-setting $590.5 million jackpot will go to the owner of a ticket purchased in the city of Zephyrhills.

Dividing the latest round of winnings three ways does not set a record, however; a spokeswoman for the Louisiana Lottery noted that four winners split a $295 million jackpot back in 2001.

USAMega.com also reports that 609,275 additional players won prize money totaling nearly $17 million. Included in those additional winners are 11 tickets that matched the 2, 6, 19, 21, and 27 combination but missed the Powerball number of 25:  1 from California, 1 from Connecticut (with Power Play), 2 from Florida, 1 from Georgia, 1 from Massachusetts, 1 from Michigan, 2 from New Jersey, 1 from North Carolina, and 1 from Wisconsin. 

Owners of those tickets will each get $1 million, while a winner in Connecticut will receive $2 million because they purchase the Power Play option for an extra $1 per ticket.

The next drawing will occur on Wednesday night, at which point the Powerball jackpot will be reset to $40 million.

      i bet they come forward a lot quicker than the $590 mill winner.

      2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

      keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318

        while 50 million is no chump change, it should be a lot easier to get all the financial situations taking care of winning that amount than the 550 that was won by the single winner.  Whomever won that won definitely doesnt want the attention although they're going to get it whether they like it or not.  The media is probably waiting there at the publix day and night to see when the winner is coming in.  If I was the winner, wouldn't even go to the publix, would just go straight to a lottery office unannounced if that's possible.  That way the media is too late, unless they're staking out those too.  Congrats to the winners!

          Why would the $590m winner even go back to Publix?

          You have to get to the lottery office to collect!

              Go figure. One ticket wins approx. $600 million, and three tickets have to share a "paltry" $50 million. Come to think of it, I will take that share anytime.

                      All the Power Ball numbers were under 30 so no wonder there were so many winners.  People probably played and won with birthdays (some could of been quick picks).  Splitting $50 million is still awesome.  You can easily retire on that if you don't spend like crazy.  Congratulations to the winners!  Banana

                          Are you implying that something is fishy because that state has so many winners?
