      How did she change?

       

      I don't think the money really changed her, she has nearly $300 million and she bought a house for $1m.. She's still an old penny pinching cheap skate!

      I doubt we will be hearing about her going broke anytime soon.

      The money won't change me when I win a large jackpot, it'll change my lifestyle though.

          What is with the nasty language? This lady doesn't owe you a thing. And what is she suppose to do buy a crappy house so she can appease you? She won a lot of money. Let her enjoy it without resulting to calling her misogynistic slurs.

            People who say that sudden fortunes will not change them are liars. I don't even know why people say that. It must be the PC thing to say in these PC times.

            That money's gone fo ever

              I'm glad she bought a nice house, I would too.

              If the money changes her that is alright too.

              If I won I'm sure my self esteem would improve:

              I'm sure I'd be more confident:

                Shes 84. What do you expect her to do. I think the nights of wild partys on Yachts, driving fancy cars, and going VIP to clubs is over.

                I would expect her to do the same if she was 24, if she wanted to try for some modicom of privacy. Wild nights of parties yachts, driving fancy cars, and going to VIP clubs would guarantee paparazzi for a jackpot winner of this size.

                Btw, why can't she drive a fancy car at least? Just because she's 84 does not mean she has to sit around knitting or doing crossword puzzles. I think it'd be great to see her in a Ferarri California, toodling along at 35 in a 45 zone.

                    Keeping it quiet, keeping it smart. So far she is doing pretty much everything as she should. $1.175 is not too extravagant for a JP of that size.

                    Congrats on the home purchase, Ms MacKenzie.

                    If she's truly smart and has good advisors she shouldn't be quite so easy to locate. Perhaps they figured that the press would follow her and figure it out anyway,  but buying the house in her daughter's name certainly didn't cause any trouble for those who were trying to find out. Then again, it's also possible that she'll be moving again in the fairly near future, and might already have purchased something through an entity that the press won't easily trace to her.

                      When I win, people may as well mind their own business as I will be racking up a lot of frequent flyer miles the year after I win. I won't purchase a house or any automobiles/toys during that time, but I just might purchase some investment property (of course in a properly structured entity).  By the time I cool my traveling heels (or will I really do that), there will have been at least a couple of larger jackpot winners and even a feel good jackpot lottery pool for the media hounds to zero in on. And for those who insist on sending me "Dear Jackpot Lottery Winner" letters, I hope they don't seriously expect a response!

                      Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                      The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                        I agree. I was about to post and use the same word--misogynistic!  So if she spent any money, it means she "changed?"  Did the prior poster know her?  Sounds very, very resentful. I am glad she is in a gated community now due to people like this. I guess she should act like Pedro and run his mouth.

                              Stack- Gloria could very well have said " Thank You " when she was allowed to cut in line. The conversation ended there.Both those two and every living organism on this planet had no idea what would next unfold. The assumption that had Gloria not stepped in line, the eventual winner would have been Mindy is fantasy. The numbers spat out in QP's is changing in nano seconds, we also  have no idea whether mindy was going for qick picks either.We also dealing with probability & outcome, both of which were not in Mindy's corner in speaking of getting the winning ticket. There is no " that was my ticket" scenario. We chasing smoke here.

                              I was talking about the extra attention Gloria is getting because someone followed her, took the pictures coming out of a restaurant and Walmart, and found out she bought the house. And I used the Mindy incident as a possible reason. As far as whether or not Mindy has anything coming is a different discussion.

                              People are curious about what the jackpot winners are doing, at least on LP, because they watch the TV show documenting jackpot winners. It seems to me for someone who wanted no attention, for some reason Gloria is getting a lot of it.
