At 84, She Is The Largest Sole Lottery Winner in America Lottery Winning History!

June 7, 2013

An 84-year-old woman who bought her Powerball ticket after another customer let her get ahead in line came forward Wednesday to claim the $590 million jackpot, becoming the largest sole lottery winner in the history of American lotteries. The woman, Gloria C. Mackenzie of Zephyrhills, took a lump sum payment of just over $370 million, Florida Lottery officials said. After paying 25 percent for federal income taxes, she is taking home about $270 million, officials said. In a statement read by lottery officials, Ms. Mackenzie said she bought the ticket after another buyer “was kind enough to let me go ahead in line to purchase the winning ticket.” She did not speak to a crowd of reporters outside lottery headquarters.
