Winning Powerball tickets sold in Hampton, Williamsburg

Richard Lord lived for 15 years with the woman who just won a $758 million Powerball lottery jackpot.

"A lot of people will be coming at them with all sorts of things", Goldberg told reporters.

Wanczyk chose the payment of $480.5 million and refuse to go to the option of 30 payments over 29 years.

Wanczyk who worked as a hospital employee in Chicopee, Massachusetts has made a mistake, she failed to protect her identity.

She bought the ticket at a store in Chicopee.

Wanczyk has two adult children, a daughter and a son.

The winning ticket was sold at the Pride Station & Store in Chicopee, in Western Massachusetts.

"We're happy for our customer and we're happy for the charities that we are going to give our commission to", Bolduc said.

The error by the Massachusetts State Lottery over which store sold the lone winning Powerball ticket is being blamed on nerves.

The lottery initially said a convenience store in Watertown had sold the winning ticket.

The Virginia Lottery said a near-record Powerball jackpot has led to skyrocketing ticket sales - except during the solar eclipse.

Michael Sweeney, the lottery's executive director explains they had a "couple of excited people at 1 o'clock in the morning" but said if there's any blame to be placed, the buck stops with him.

A mad rush for tickets pushed on Wednesday's jackpot up from an originally announced $650 million as lines formed out of shopping malls and grocery stores, Powerball said. Five white balls are drawn from a drum containing 69 balls and one red ball is selected from a drum with 26 balls.

The reason the prize is so large is because there hasn't been a Powerball jackpot victor since June 10.

With drawings being held twice a week, Powerball is played in 44 states plus Washington, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, all of which collectively oversee the game.
