The $949.8 million dollar US Powerball lottery jackpot

This is without a doubt the largest lottery jackpot in US history, and whoever wins it will be seriously rich, having beaten the odds of 1 in 300,000,000 to win the massive $949.8 million dollar Powerball lottery jackpot. The numbers were drawn on Saturday the 9th of January, and they are: 16, 19, 32, 34, 57 and the Powerball number is 13. There were no winning tickets purchased in California, but a winning ticket might have been purchased in another state. If the winner chooses an immediate cash payment, then he/she will receive a $558 million payout. Subtract a 39.6% federal tax from the win, and any other local and state taxes, and the winner could walk away with a cool $335 million which dwarfs the fortunes of most Hollywood celebrities.
