Well, did you win the $700 million Powerball jackpot?

Powerball Fever Strikes Duluth

Chicopee police told 22News that they are making patrols and extra checks on Mavis Wanczyk's house.

Lottery officials say she chose to take a lump sum payment of $480 million, or $336 million after taxes.

She has worked at Mercy Medical Center for 32 years and had dreamed about retiring in 12 more years.

"That's just the way life is sometimes", the 64-year-old said shurgging his shoulders.

Then she read the number on her ticket and realised she had won.

Ms Wanczyk has two children-a son and a daughter.

"We're happy for our customer and we're happy for the charities that we are going to give our commission to", Bolduc said. Bob Bolduc, founder of Pride Station & Stores, said at a news conference Thursday that the ticket was sold to a middle aged woman on Wednesday afternoon, theWashington Post reports.

Massachusetts State Lottery officials have corrected the site where the single winning ticket for the Powerball $758.7 million jackpot was sold to Chicopee, not Watertown.

The lottery corrected the site where the single winning ticket was sold to Chicopee, Massachusetts.

"They couldn't all be making the same mistake", Bolduc said.

The announcement that a victor had come forward came after a turbulent morning in which lottery officials initially misidentified not only the store that sold the winning ticket, but the town. Five white balls are drawn from a drum containing 69 balls and one red ball is selected from a drum with 26 balls.

Odds of winning the jackpot are one in 292.2 million.

According to the MA law, the law requires revealing the identity of the Powerball jackpot victor.

Amid all the talk about sudden wealth, it's easy to forget that the objective of Powerball is to raise money for government programs in the 44 states where the game is played, as well as Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The jackpot for Wednesday night's drawing reached $758.7 million.
