Chicopee Police increase security near Powerball winner's home

Their prizes might not be much compared to the $759 million won by a MA woman, but some Mainers are among people who won lesser - but still significant - amounts of money in this week's multistate Powerball drawing.

"The first thing I want to do is just sit back and relax", Mavis L Wanczyk told reporters at a news conference. Officers have also advised neighbors to call the police in case they observe any suspicious activity in their locality.

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.

"I had a pipe dream, and my pipe dream has finally come true, I wanted to retire and it came early!" she said.

She followed up her video of an unidentified creature's tail to reveal, as fans had expected, the mystery reptile was a snake . The sources went on saying that the music video is eye-catching, adding that Taylor Swift was being secretive about it.

She bought the ticket at a store in Chicopee.

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

The winning Powerball ticket was one that Wanczyk picked herself, using a combination of family birthdays and her lucky number, four.

The winning numbers in the drawing were 6-7-16-23-26 and 4 for the Powerball.

The odds of matching all six numbers remain the same, at a miserable one in 292.2 million, regardless of the jackpot prize.

Kurland said, "She's now one of the world's wealthiest people and she has to start acting like it". He said the Chicopee store will receive $50,000 for selling the winning ticket, he said. Your chance of winning is roughly comparable to being that one lucky person out of the entire population, with everyone else losing.

Face it, you're nearly certainly not going to win the jackpot, but players have much better odds of one in 25 of winning a lesser prize. After someone wins the jackpot, the prize will drop to $40 million, then resume its growth.

Powerball is offered in 44 States, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.

A $1 million ticket was sold at a Food Lion in Creedmoor, matching all five white balls.
