New Jersey man revealed as final Powerball winner | Reuters

By MUNIDE ZULU Many of you readers will recall one thing or another about the American Dream. If you do not, we will bring you up to speed with a simple on-line definition which says the American dream is a national ethos of the United States, a set of ideals in which freedom includes the opportunity for prosperity and success. An upward social mobility achieved through hard work made popular by James Truslow Adams in 1931 when he said, life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement regardless of social class or circumstances of birth. In Zambia such dreams do exist but more so in the United States of America hence probably the reason prosperity against all odds is associated to the American Dream. Today in the Sunday Mail, we bring to you, typical rags to riches story of a Kanyama man in Lusaka who wants to turn his American dream into reality thanks to Zambia Lotto located off Kafue Road. Mr Raphael Magodi wants to burn all the money K1.3million or billion unrebased on a ticket to the United States to fulfill his long life dream. Mr https://www.rebelmouse.com/lottocashmachine/ Magodi, who has bid farewell to poverty for the meantime and maybe forever has already picked a destination of choice in the United States Los Angeles, the City of Angels. It is not the highest lotto being won from Zambian Lotto but it certainly is significant in a country where the lowest public worker takes home about K3,000 after a recent 200 percent wage hike by the government, the highest since independence. On June 29, the life of a 20-year-old Kabwe girl, Elizabeth Mubanga turned upside down when she bagged a cool K2.4 billion. Of course she gave K240,000 to her spiritual guide her father. Back to Mr Magodi, 32, of Kanyama Township (in picture) he could not hide his joy when the K4 tickets he played for the game turned him from being in a proverbial under-dog to a top dog -literally. He told the Sunday Mail that he has lived a squalid little life of begging for money from richer relatives that drive buses at the main bus stations in Lusaka. Mr Magodi always dreamt of winning the lotto so that he could escape the scorn and contempt from relatives that mocked him every time he asked for some money. When he asked for money to apply and pay for a passport in 2010, some thought he had finally gone mad as they asked him where he thought he might go. This was at the infancy of his American Dream. He has been playing the game for five years to the day he struck gold and smelt America in the air. I spent all the money I got from almsgiving to playing the Zambian lotto game, Mr Magodi said. I thank God because he has made my dream come true. Mr Magodi is not a greedy man. He wants his brother to fly with me to America. Once he recalls spending his entire pay of K300 on the Zambian Lotto game when he worked as a butcher man at Kasengo butchery in Kabwe. On his return from his planned Los Angeles trip, Mr Magodi wants to use the change to buy a house in up-market location such as Roma or Kabulonga and bid farewell to the Kanyama shack he is paying K250 per month or US$46 per month. Mr Magodi who still does not believe that he is now a millionaire, said he also wants to further his education by studying accounts. His win in dollar terms is US$186,783 minus taxes. A high school drop-out due to lack of funds, Mr Magodi now wants his three children namely Theresa,12, William, four, and Richard, three, to get the best education from his bounty. I told my brother that I had won the jackpot but he also did not believe it. He told me that the game was not real but he has now also joined the race with hope that one day, he can also turn into a millionaire, reminisces Mr Magodi with a smile on his face.

Mario Scarnici of Monmouth Junction claimed his share of the prize, which amounts to $86 million before taxes. Two of the three winning tickets in the August 7 drawing were sold in the state, according to a New Jersey Lottery statement released on Friday. He purchased his ticket from the Super Stop & Shop supermarket in South Brunswick Township. Jose Perez, a night manager at the Stop & Shop, said the winning ticket has been great for business and that employees are thrilled that the winner came forward to claim his prize. "We were happy first of all that we sold it," said Perez in a telephone interview. "We sold a ticket before but nobody claimed it." The store received a $30,000 bonus commission for selling the ticket, and will give that money to charity. According to a report on the CentralJersey.com web site, Scarnici came forward with his two adult sons to claim his prize. He chose the cash option and will get about $62 million after taxes. Members of a group of 16 Ocean County maintenance workers with a winning ticket will each receive about $3.8 million after taxes. The group, known as Ocean's 16, bought the Powerball numbers at the Acme Markets in Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey. Scarnici could not be reached for comment, nor could a representative for the state lottery. Paul White, an engineer from Ham Lake, Minnesota, was the other winner. The odds of winning the jackpot were about one in 175 million. (Reporting by David Jones; Editing by Mary Wisniewski and Xavier Briand)

The winning lottery ticket was purchased at the Playland Market in Rye on August 25, 2012. According to New York Gaming Commission rules, winners have up to one year to claim their prize. New York Lottery officials have been urging players to check their tickets for the winning numbers: 1-6-7-20-49, Powerball 23, and come forward before the ticket expires. "We're hopeful the lucky winner has already signed the ticket and is making plans to claim it before it's too late," said Gardner Gurney, acting director of the Division of the Lottery. The New York Gaming Commission uses all means possible to get the word out when it is presented with an unclaimed prize, including news media and social media, said Christy Calicchia, spokesperson for the commission. Sandy victims among the 'Ocean's 16' Powerball winners To claim the money, the winner must present the ticket at any one of New York's seven customer service centers during business hours. Since the one-year anniversary of the ticket's purchase falls on a Sunday, the winner would technically need to have presented the ticket by the close of business Friday, said Calicchia. It is unclear how the situation would be handled if the ticket were to be turned in on Monday, she said. Lottery winners may also turn in winning tickets by mail. As long as the ticket is postmarked by August 25, it will be deemed valid. The gaming commission will be monitoring incoming mail to see if the ticket turns up, Calicchia said. New York state has seen several prizes go unclaimed, the largest of which was drawn more than a decade ago. In 2002, the owner of a winning ticket sold in Brooklyn never came forward to collect the $68 million prize. It remains the highest jackpot to go unclaimed in New York Lottery history. The next year, a ticket in Brooklyn went unclaimed again, this time for a jackpot of $46 million. Winnings can go unclaimed for a variety of reasons, Calicchia said, noting sometimes tickets or lost or become unreadable after being left in a pocket and washed. She said many tickets are unclaimed because winners don't notice they scored with smaller, tiered prizes in lottery jackpots. "Most people don't realize that there is more than one prize in the lottery drawing," she said. Rye is in Westchester County and is about 30 miles north of New York City. The New York Gaming Commission regulates all aspects of gaming and gambling activity in New York state, including horse racing, charitable gaming and the state lottery.

Clock ticking for NY lottery winner to claim $1M - Wire Business News - The Sacramento Bee

25, 2012, drawing was sold at a Westchester County deli, the Playland Market in Rye, about 30 miles north of New York City. The winning numbers are 1-6-7-20-49 with Powerball 23. The deli put a sign in its window with the lucky numbers, hoping to find the customer who bought the ticket last year. Winners have up to one year to claim the prize. New York Lottery spokesman Lee Park says the deadline will be extended for one week in case someone mailed in their ticket. As long as the ticket is postmarked by Aug. 25, it's valid. If someone were to submit the winning ticket in person on Monday, lottery officials would consider honoring it because the deadline falls on Sunday. A winner may also present their ticket at New York's seven lottery customer service centers. If no one claims the prize, the money will be returned to the lottery pool. The highest unclaimed jackpot in New York Lottery history $68 million came with a ticket sold in Brooklyn in 2002. In the past four months, winners statewide have failed to claim nearly $28 million in drawing-game prizes before they expired. And last year, there were more than $65 million in expired winnings. On $1 million in winnings, the take-home pay is about $600,000 after federal taxes. Order Reprint About Comments Reader comments on Sacbee.com are the opinions of the writer, not The Sacramento Bee.

Lottery winner Graham Nield proposes to Amanda Vickers moments after scooping jackpot | Mail Online

Graham, who bought the ticket from Tescos in Bradford Road, attended all his morning meetings before calling the lottery office. The couple recently left their home in Hanging Heaton to move in with Amandas parents, James and Joan Vickers, both 72, in Dewsbury. Before the move, the pair visited Amandas parents to tell them the news. Graham sprung another surprise on his future in-laws asking for permission to marry their daughter and got down on one knee to propose. Despite the winnings, the pair are planning to keep their wedding low key. We are planning on getting married in the registry office and have a big party afterwards, said Graham. Amanda, who grew up in Dewsbury, wont be splashing the cash on a diamond ring, but instead will keep an eternity ring previously bought by her fiancee. The couple intend to share their winnings with their five children from previous marriages and are considering opening a cafe. Search for: (Plumber, Taxi, McDonalds...) Where?

Life is tweet for back on form Nigella: Domestic Goddess takes to Twitter for first time since split from ex-husband Charles Saatchi 'When we found out on Sunday that wed won, I blurted out "Now will you marry me?" to which she replied "Yes, but it isnt because youve won the money, its because I love you".' The couple, who are both divorced, have been together for 10 years and have five grown-up children between them from previous relationships, and 13 grandchildren. They said they only told their family about their windfall last night when Mr Nield formally asked Ms Vickers mother Joan, 72, for permission to marry her daughter. Lost his nerve: Mr Nield said he had tried to propose on previous occasions but kept losing his nerve Ms Vickers said her mother had no hesitation after he went down on bended knee in front of her and her father James, also 72. 'I think she loves him more than I do,' she joked. Mr Nield admitted he had considered asking his partner to marry him several times over the years but 'it just wouldnt come out'. Ms Vickers said: 'Ive been hoping for 10 years.' Asked about the proposal, Ms Vickers said: 'That meant more to me than the money. 'Winning the money? Im more excited about getting married.' The couple said they are still planning the simple register office ceremony they have always imagined followed by a big party for friends and family. Mr Nield said: 'Ill be able to afford Christmas this year for them.' They have no plans for expensive engagement and wedding rings. Ms Vickers said they were planning to use a ring they already had which has sentimental value to both of them. Icing on the cake: Ms Vickers said she's more excited about getting married than winning the money The couple met at automotive firm Autoneum, where Mr Nield has worked for 25 years and Ms Vickers for winning the powerball lottery rebelmouse.com 12. She said she is planning to hand her notice in tomorrow - and Mr Nield is her boss who will have to accept it. He said he is still thinking about whether to give up work. Remembering the moment they found out about the win, Mr Nield said: 'She just went "whoopee" and went jumping around the room. 'I said "are you serious?" and she said "yes, weve won, weve won". 'As she was jumping round the room going "whoopee, whoopee", I said "now can we get married please?".' The couple did not check their ticket until Sunday evening because they were up at 2am that day securing a pitch at a local car boot sale.

In fact, the odds of scoring a slots progressive are often much better than lottery odds, which is great news when you hear that the Big Top Tombola progressive jackpot is a staggering 1.4 million at Winner Bingo and other Virtue Fusion sites. The Big Top Tombola is one of the most popular Virtue Fusion games around, and we love to play it at Winner Bingo . The jackpot has been climbing for a while, but its currently a massive 1.39 million for players maxing out on the game. Its about to tip over to 1.4 million but will the Big Top Tombola jackpot be won before that? If youre prepared to go the whole hog and play 5 a spin, and luck is on your side, you could win the equivalent of a lottery win. Now 5 a spin is steep to say the least, especially considering that the 5-reel Big Top Tombola has 20 lines (thats 100 a spin if you play max lines), but even if you like to play lower stakes you could still scoop a big prize. The jackpot on the game is dependent on your coin size, and you can play for as little as a penny a spin, but that would also take the jackpot down to a few thousand. Things start to get very interesting at 20p a spin, taking the top prize to over 55,000! Well be keeping an eye on the jackpot on the Big Top Tombola as it continues to grow, but were sure when thats won, its going to create some excitement around the bingo world, so make sure youre in with a chance of being a winner at bingo.winner.com !

Players across the country are betting they have all six Mega Millions winning numbers for Friday's drawing.

California Lottery officials announced on Thursday, August 15 , that there was one second-tier Powerball lottery winner in the last drawing. The California Powerball winner matched five out of six Powerball winning numbers, but not the red Powerball number for the second-tier prize.

Since then, Ditmar has puzzled and sometimes irritated his family and friends by spending almost none of his winnings, keeping his job at the post office and maintaining his low-key lifestyle in a modest two-bedroom house. I dont want to bust out big without giving it plenty of thought first, he would tell intimates. Thats the classic lottery-winner mistake. Yesterday, Ditmar busted out really big, announcing that he had purchased The New York Times, perhaps the worlds most prestigious newspaper, for $324 million. Arthur Sulzberger Jr., publisher of the Times and chairman of the New York Times Company, said he regretted having to sell the paper, which had been in his family since it was acquired by his great grandfather, Adolph Ochs, in 1896, but believed that Ditmar was the right man to guide the Times to a more secure future in a turbulent and unpredictable world. Ive done my best but I have slightly below-average intelligence and, aside from being born the heir to The New York Times, Ive never had any luck, Sulzberger said. Obviously, Tony Ditmar is a stupendously lucky man and in this crazy, upside-down media environment were in now, thats the only thing you can really count on. Sulzberger pointed to yesterdays two-hour disruption of the Times website as typical of the misfortunes that have befallen the paper under his reign. In an emotional, sometimes violent meeting with the papers editorial staff, (See related article: 3 Injured in Newsroom Melee) Sulzberger tried to assure upset reporters and editors that Ditmar would maintain the Times standards of high-quality journalism. Tony told me he has read the paper several times and likes it a lot, especially the Dealbook and Autos sections, Sulzberger said.
