People play the lottery to win. Some play it for the fun of it and the enjoyment of never knowing what your fortune could end up being. Players almost experience that child-like excitement by entering their lucky numbers either random, or inspired by special dates and occasions. 

And after that, once the numbers have been entered, that’s when the fantasy list starts coming into play. You’re familiar with it. The new house, the new supercar, the kids getting expensive gifts, the wife or husband getting the gadget of their dreams. The list goes on and on, and nothing will stop. Because once you win the Powerball lottery online, the fantasy list doesn’t ever have to stop. You can indulge in anything you choose for as long as you please. 

Let’s take a look at some of the biggest Powerball jackpot winners to date.

Gloria Mackenzie - $590.5 million

For only a select few who turned out to be extremely lucky, they got to see their wildest dreams realised by winning the wildest jackpot prizes. By wild, we mean the biggest and best US Powerball jackpot the world has seen. Gloria was one of these blessed individuals who beat tremendous odds. 

Gloria hit this jackpot at age 84. There couldn’t have been one individual out there who wasn’t happy for this woman. The fact that she was 84 when she won didn’t bother her or anyone, the important part is that she won and will get to change the lives of those less fortunate than her, as well as her family for years to come. Her son is 57-year-old Scott Mackenzie. She was the sole winner of this jackpot, which means she didn’t have to share it with anyone else. 

According to her friends, Gloria still keeps it simple and likes to shop at Walmart. Gloria chose to receive the money in the form of a lump sum, which after taxes came down to $278 million. “We are grateful for this blessing of winning the Florida Lottery Powerball jackpot and appreciate the interest of the public,” explained Gloria. 

Cindy Hill - $587.5 million

Cindy and her husband Mark won their share of the massive $587.5 million Powerball jackpot and shared the win with one other individual who chose to remain anonymous. Both winners opted for the cash option. 

“I think we’re going to have a pretty good Christmas,” joked Cindy. “We’re still stunned by what’s happened. It’s surreal. Every once in a while you look at each other and say, ‘Did we really win that money?’” added Cindy. 

When the couple went to claim their winnings, they went with their three sons and young daughter. The pair had bought their Powerball ticket but then left it in their car overnight. The day after the draw when Cindy took her kids to school she checked her ticket. 

“I didn’t have my glasses. I was thinking, ‘Are those the right numbers?’ And I was shaking, I called my husband and said that I thought I was having a heart attack,” she said. Her oldest son also was in disbelief. Their lives have changed considerable since the win, Mark, who used to be a maintenance worker, found a better job after being unemployed for so long. He enjoys working because it keeps his feet on the ground. 

Despite the winners being rich enough to live anywhere in the world they say that’s probably the one thing that will never change: their zip code. “We want our daughter to be raised here as well. We’ll stay in this area,” said Cindy. 

B. Raymond Buxton - $425.4 million

On the 19th of February 2014, Buxton’s life changed. When he went to lottery headquarters to claim his winnings, he was wearing a shirt with Yoda on it that read, “Luck of the Jedi I have”. 

He was getting lunch at a subway food chain when he decided to buy himself another Powerball ticket because the jackpot was massive. He chose a single quick pick ticket that turned out to be the winning one. He opted for the lump sum option. 

“Unbelievable, it’s simply unbelievable. I couldn’t muster any words,” said Buxton as he described the moment he discovered the win. “I sat in front of the computer for hours in disbelief, frequently checking the numbers across other sites. After the shock passed I couldn’t sleep for days,” said Bruxton.

We all dream of hitting the jackpot, and from reading all these inspiration stories, it give us hope. It confirms the fact that anyone can win. Make sure you have a chance of winning by buying some ticket online. You could just make your wildest dreams come true.
