After rolling over sixteen times the $580m Powerball jackpot was won in last night’s draw Wednesday November 28, 2012. Two (02) winning tickets – one from Arizona and one from Missouri – have won an equal share of the record $580m jackpot.
In addition, $131m has also been won in non-jackpot prizes…fifty-eight (58) $1,000,000 match 5 winning tickets sold in AZ, CT, FL, GA, ID, IL, IN, KY, LA, MI, MN, MO, NC, NJ, NM, NY, OH, OK, PA, SC, TN, TX, VA, and WI.Â Eight (08) $2,000,000 match 5 numbers with Power Play winning tickets sold in Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Maryland, New Hampshire, Ohio and South Carolina.
Who won the Powerball jackpot?
Since the numbers were drawn yesterday speculation about who the winners are is widespread and lotto players across the world are eager to find out more.Â Are they sole winners or do they belong to a syndicate of family, friends or colleagues?Â What’s their background story?Â Was it karma or coincidence?
Late for work!
The locations of the winning tickets are known and this morning bosses and managers across Missouri and Arizona must be on the lookout for a higher than normal rate of staff absence.Â Do your bit and keep an eye out too, if some of your colleagues fail to turn up this morning start asking questions, it could be them?
Record win could be split
It may be a record Powerball jackpot but may be not a record amount for one person?Â If they are sole winners and they choose to take the cash – a vast majority of winners do, the last annuity payment was October 2007 â€“ they will split $379.8m meaning just under $190m each, however if the winning tickets belong to syndicates the amount per person will obviously go down.Â Regardless this is still a huge amount of money to win and we canâ€™t wait to find out more about the people who have won.
