     Looked her info up, that's the jackpot amount, the cash value was 370.9..

    Indiana state tax knocks down the 380 cash value below Gloria's 370. Thus, she remains the undefeated  champ by a close margin.

      Taxes are not included as a determining factor of the largest cash payouts.  If the cash option is selected by the winner, this indeed is the largest cash payout to a single ticket in history, beating the old record by around $100,000.

            I wouldn't check them yet if I were you. Hide your tickets in a safe place and wait to see if there is any commotion in your area. This will allow you to dream what if....

                .

                Ms. SaylorGirl,

                If it was you, I don't know what to say, except 'NICE HIT!'.
                If it was you, please realize that billions of folks wish they could be in your place.

                I hope you do the right thing, and do the Lawyer and Financial Adviser thing.

                Mr. Groppo

                • Don't chase the numbers you play.
                • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
                • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.

                  Congrats to the lucky winner in Indiana!  Well, I guess here comes my break from playing lottery until the Mega gets $250mil again in 25 1/2 years or so... or until Powerball (expensive) gets to the $400 mil+ range.

                      I am pretty sure I will check them before a month is out, but might as well dream for awhile!

                            Location where the winning ticket was sold has been added to the article.   I won't repeat it, in case you don't want to know yet.

                              WTG to the ticket holder !! 

                              Someone said that the person is Greedy?? Really? I call it pure blessings to purchase a ticket and be able to claim it. How is it greedy for that person? They beat the odds . 

                              I'd say Congrats and move on in life.

                              ~~Is it true, Is it kind,Is it necessary. ~~~

                               Thanks be to the giving numbers: 1621,912,119 02014
