Gloria's jp never made it to $599M and she took the cash sum of $370M, which is already less than this jp's $380M, not to mention that she split it with her son, so yes, if one person won this jackpot and chose the CV, he/she will receive the largest individual lottery sum in US history.

Thank You, Teddi, for your update. I hope you win this jackpot Friday night!Party

      Yes it will be if they choose the cash option, beating the previous record of $370 by the elderly woman in Florida who was the only winner of that big PB jackpot a few years back.

      I'm like 90% sure that is a sole winner chooses annuity, that would be the largest annuity ever awarded. I know there was someone in Cali who choose the annuity for a 200M jackpot, and i'm pretty sure that's the current record

        Anyone else get in a pool at work when it gets to be a huge number like this?  I'm realistic, I don't think we will win, but we draw up a contract just in case.

          As already noted, the cash value is about $9 million more than the cash prize won by Gloria McKenzie. The size of the check that gets written, and how much a single winner actually nets are still unknown. McKenzie should have netted at least $224 million. Even with a somewhat bigger (current) cash value Pennsylvania's state income tax of 3.07% (lowest in the country) would result in a net of  about $218 million. Here in NY I'd be looking at about 196.

          Of course the final total will probably be higher, so there's a fair chance that even after paying some state tax a single winner could still end up with more than McKenzie.

                We are overdue for a big hit in Indiana with both the MM and PB. I know just the place to get my ticket.

                I Agree!

                      Wow. The only thing I miss about Ohio is fall and deer season.

                      But it is were I grew up. I do have some fond memories.

                      Except winter.

                      I do not look forward  to winter. My brother-in-law looks forward to  deer season though!

                              I predict with the power vested in me that this winner will be young and they will be the biggest single lottery prize winner ever. The Jackpot will be paid

                              to Arizona and the winner will be the biggest single lottery winner ever in the world of $729,000,000.00
