One Winner Beat the Odds for Record $590+M
Saturday night’s winning numbers were 10, 13, 14, 22 and 52, with a Powerball of 11.
The lump sum payout is $590.5M, the winner gets: $376.9M
The US government will get $149M in taxes.
The AP reports a single winner was sold at a supermarket in Zephyrhills, Fla. So I guess it’s back to work on Monday.
Fox’s Tucker Carlson mentioned that “Back in the day, when the mob ran the “Numbers,” the winner got it all.” True, but back then if you didn’t pay up, they sent over big guys to break your legs or worse.
