A winning ticket for the Powerball $758.7 million grand prize has been purchased at the Pride Station & Store in Chicopee, Massachusetts — and the lump sum payment after taxes equates to $417 million — richer than most of the biggest celebrities worldwide.
With the winning numbers — 6, 7, 16, 23, 26, and the Powerball as 4 — the owner of the store that sold the ticket, Bob Bolduc, told reporters that the winning ticket was bought at about 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, and he thinks it may be a middle age woman.
Chances of picking all six winning numbers currently stand at about one in 292 million, and you’ll have a better chance of getting killed by an asteroid (1 in 700,000), be struck by lightning while drowning (1 in 183 million), or give birth to quadruplets (1 in 729,000).
In terms of how this person ranks with some of the richest celebs, here’s a sample list below.
– Beyonce: $350 million
– Mel Gibson: $400 million
– Tyler Perry: $390 million
– Mick Jagger: $305 million
