She definitely deserves 10%. Had  I won all that loot, 10% would have easily gone her way-no question about it.

She can't give anyone 10 percent because 45 percent gift tax will kick in. And ten percent is like $59,000,000 lol

    i was joking, but if you let 100 people in a day, and they spend $100 ea thats like 1000 free tickets. personally the reward for being nice is knowing you are ncie and the thank you you recieve.   what ever happens its upto the old  broad, and what she wants to do. not for us to judge. lets get on with us wining our own jackpots and leave the old lady in peace.

    I Agree!

      I Agree! She should have brought her to the lottery office and split it.

          Gloria Mackenzie won a huge jackpot, banked about quarter-billion $$ after taxes, because Mindy Crandell's actions allowed her to be spread with some magic pixiedust, putting her at just the right place at just the right time.

          She's not legally obligated to do a <snip> thing, but the right thing to do is pay off every penny of debt the Crandell's may have, including mortage; establish a trust fund that is enough to pay for four years of the daughter's college education, pay for a two-week vacation anywhere in the world the family wants to go, buy the family a new vehicle of their choosing, and pay a cash reward of at least $250,000.

          If there's tax penalties involved by overdoing the gift $$ amount, so what; pay that too.

          If I won a jackpot of that size because someone let me ahead of them in line, putting me in the magic zone, that'd be the bare minimum I'd do for that individual.

            Would it be easier to split the ticket and let her pay her own bills?

                This wasn't an instant ticket purchase. It was a computer generated quick pick. Split

                seconds mean everything when tickets are selling at an incredible rate in so many

                states. The place in line DOES NOT matter. The exact time of purchase means every-

                thing. I hope the mother of 4 isn't trying to strike a sympathetic nerve because she

                wouldn't have won. It's the timing not the place in line. She could have kept her place

                in line and not won a darn thing...stop to pick up something dropped, wait for a clerk

                to process your purchase, ask for an instant ticket before asking for a quick pick,

                grab a kid that's wandering away...all these things happen in an instant but mean

                everything in the nano second world of Powerball ticket sales. One deviation in

                right place, EXACT time is the difference between winner and loser, not the line

                place.

                      Sure, maybe, but what does it matter? The lawyers/financial trust people will do all the heavy lifting and grunt work.

                        Right, she is 84. Does she really want her last act on earth to be one of greed and selfishness?

                          I get that.

                          The terminal games are so unlike instants...let someone in line before you and they buy the instant you were going to buy

                          and they win, then it's a I LET THEM IN LINE BEFORE ME story.

                          There is no I let them go before me and they won involved here...just in their own silly mind. Try explaining that to the loser,

                          they'll never get it.

                              Even though the machine probably would have picked out a different ticket, if it was me, I probably would have still given the young lady a half a million or even a million just for the hell of it regardless. It was that young woman's act that made it possible for the lady to have ultimiately benefited.
