Earlier this year, January to be precise, the US Powerball had a record-breaking jackpot of $1.6 billion. The jackpot was won by three ticketholders across the US. Two of the lucky ticketholders came forward in the blink of an eye to
The third winner was from Chino Hills, California. Six months after the win, Marvin and Mae Acosta came forward to claim their $528.8 million
You might be wondering why it took this pair so long to come forward. Well, according to the winners, they have spent the last few months reading about how to handle a lottery win and consulting a team of legal and financial advisors. Winning so much money can be dangerous if you are not fully equipped and prepared for it, which is why the winners took their time and made sure they did everything right.
The director of the California lottery, Huge Lopez, said, “We couldn’t be happier for them and are thrilled they took the time to assemble the right team before coming in to claim it.”
The Chino Hills winners bought their Powerball ticket from a 7-Eleven store. They matched all five main numbers including the bonus ball. The Powerball numbers that changed their lives forever were:
4-8-19-27-34 and 10.
They chose to receive the money in a lump sum option, which amounts to $327.8 million after taxes. The store that sold them the winning ticket will receive $1 million.
This $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot that was split three ways is the largest in US history so far. The lucky Californian winners said they have put their winnings towards a trust and to charities they find important. They do not want to become public figures and prefer to maintain a simple, private lifestyle.
Powerball has reached a whopping €385 million and the next draw is on the 27th of July. The time to act is NOW. Get your tickets in!
