Twenty three people from almost as many states will share a whopping $100 million in one of the Nation's largest lottery payoffs.
Split twenty three ways, the winners will receive over four million each. After taxes, the amounts could be as little as 2.5 million bucks, but, as one Washington winner, Casey Jones says, "That still ain't chump change!"
Paul Jacoby, a winner from Edmonds, Washington, says he bought his ticket while getting gas on the way to work in downtown Seattle. "Even if I only end up with the two million or whatever, that's still more than I'd make in my lifetime," Mr. Jacoby beamed.
Janine Broderick is a successful real estate agent in Bellevue, East of Seattle, and commented that 2.5 mil is roughly equal to her annual earnings for the past few years. "Still," she said, "this is great. This will buy me a new kitchen!"
Jones says she plans to sink the bulk of the four mil, before taxes, into various tax deferred investment plans. The remainder, she said, will buy a little bungalow in the South Pacific, and that's where she'll stay. "I'm ready to retire from the human race," Ms. Jones said. "What would I do around here? If it's a choice between loafing in the cold weather, or loafing in a tropical paradise, it's really a no-brainer." Asked if she'd give notice at her job, Jones laughed and turned away.
Though none of the Washingtonians attended, twenty of the winners traveled to Chicago for the award ceremony. After the banquet, the group parted with no plans to stay in touch.
