Record $340 Million Ticket Sold in Oregon!
The small town of Jacksonville (population 1,955) located in southwest Oregon lays claim to having sold the single winning ticket for the record breaking $340 million Powerball jackpot. The ticket was sold at one of only two Powerball retailers in the city: Ray's Food Place or the Jacksonville Tavern. No one has stepped forward yet to claim the prize, but when they do they will have to decide on the 29-year, 30-payment annuity, or the cash option worth $164,410,058. The winner will have 60 days after their ticket is validated to make that decision.

Huh? So the story was all a lie? That would suck if no one ever claimed it, as the jackpot may as well continued on. Unless the winners are just waiting a few weeks before claiming it officially.

I don't see the winner(s) waiting weeks to come forward. I also think that when they claim, they'll decide on lump sum.

The story was reported by ABC News, in an exclusive interview with the supposed winner. Powerball must maintain a strict line of "nobopdy has claimed the jackpot", until the winner officially claims the prize.

I think the guy who claimed the ticket, has the winning ticket. I mean, he would be stupid to say he has the ticket just to get his 15 minutes. He would look like a moron doing that.
Dance like no one is watching.

Maybe people in the ABC story is still in shock. They obviously failed to plan anything farther then a cup of coffee each morning. I gotta wonder what their private business is. I hope it has nothing to do with Homeland Security.

I only trust myself - and that's a questionable choice
