84 year old woman wins $590 million Jackpot!

this is where the magic happened!

If you win ..You just won $590 million today, how will you feel? what will you do with it?

The lastest winner of the powerball jackpot is an 84 year old woman from Zephyrhills who won the $590 million Powerball jackpot.

Note:  Zephyrhills is a city in Pasco Country, Florida , USA.

"The winner of last month's $590 million Powerball jackpot is an 84-year-old woman from Zephyrhills, Fla.
Florida Lottery officials made the announcement Wednesday after Gloria C. Mackenzie came forward to claim the prize. They say Mackenzie took the single lump-sum payment of about $370.9 million before taxes.

Officials say she is the largest sole lottery winner in U.S. history. She did not speak to reporters outside lottery headquarters, leaving in a silver Ford Focus with family members.

The winning ticket was sold at a Publix supermarket in Zephyrhills, a town of about 13,300 people located 30 miles northeast of Tampa. It is best known for bottled spring water that bears its name.
The winner had 60 days from the May 18 drawing to claim the lump sum.

Officials said it was a single ticket with just one set of numbers, chosen randomly for the buyer by computer, a quick pick, according to CBS affiliate WTSP in Tampa.

It's an amount too high for many to imagine. Compare it to the budget for the city of Zephyrhills: This year's figure is just more than $49 million. The winning Powerball jackpot is 12 times that.
The winning numbers were 10, 13, 14, 22 and 52, with a Powerball of 11.

Estimates had earlier put the jackpot at around $600 million. But Powerball's online site said Sunday that the jackpot had reached an estimated $590.5 million.

The world's largest jackpot was a $656 million Mega Millions jackpot in March 2012.

The chances of winning the prize were astronomically low: 1 in 175.2 million. That's how many different ways you can combine the numbers when you play. But lottery officials estimated that about 80 percent of those possible combinations had been purchased recently"
