A much smaller Powerball worth $50M has been split between 3 winning tickets.
The AP reports that a Florida resident is the third winner of the latest $50M Powerball award. The other two winners were from Louisiana and Delaware. The three winners will split $50 million over 20 years, of a lump sum of $31.1 million.
This is the second time this month that somebody from Florida has won the lottery. An unnamed winner on May 20 won the Powerball jackpot worth $590.5 million. The state said at the time that Florida is the state with the most Powerball winners of any state. This latest win only further cements Florida as being full of lottery winners.
Speaking of records, the three-way split of the latest Powerball is not the highest split. A 2001 $295 million Powerball was split four ways.
The next Powerball jackpot will only be worth $40 million. For most, that’s still quite enough money.
