Default $590 Million Powerball Winner Is an 84-Year-Old Woman

The winner of the huge Powerball jackpot is 84 years old - imagine being named in her will and sweating out what you will get after she has a new one written

An elderly Florida woman has claimed the $590 million Powerball bonanza and revealed that she bought the winning ticket when another person waiting to buy a ticket let her jump the line.

Gloria C. Mackenzie, 84, of Zephyrhills, Fla., was named the winner of the largest Powerball jackpot in history, but was not present at the televised press conference.

Florida Lottery officials read a statement from her in which the elderly woman said:

"We bought the winning ticket as a single ticket, even though we bought four other tickets before the drawing. While in line at Publix another lottery player was kind enough to let me go ahead of them in line to purchase the winning Quick Pick ticket. ...

"The winner opted to take the lump sum cash payout of $370.8 million, before taxes, instead of 30 annual payments of $19 million," lottery spokeswoman Cynthia O'Connell said.

I meant he was probably headed to see the same movie and you fucked him royal out of seeing the surprise ending to "The Crying Game".
