So IIRC, there was a video going around supposedly showing a black guy wearing reflective coveralls freaking out because he had the winning ticket... I guess that was bogus or mistaken identity??

and yes, that's a run on sentence...
It was probably the media being the media. It looked to me like he was leaning over a scratch off ticket. He probably won big on some scratch off and was celebrating that.

Florida



1 winning ticket sold in Fla. on Powerball

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) A lottery official says 1 winning ticket has been sold in Florida for a record Powerball jackpot of more than $590 million.

Terry Rich, a lottery official in Iowa, confirmed the ticket matching all six numbers was sold in Florida. Rich told The Associated Press by telephone that details were expected to be announced later by Florida lottery officials about the actual ticket sold.

Powerball.com said the winner sold in Florida means the current estimated jackpot resets at $40 million or $25.1 million cash value.

The numbers drawn Saturday were: 10, 13, 14, 22, 52 and Powerball 11.

With four of every five possible combinations of Powerball numbers in play, someone was almost certain to win the game's highest jackpot, though chances of winning remained astronomically low at 1 in 175.2 million.

Wasn't me.....
Given the area it was won in, I'd bet it's some hick farm boy or a senior citizen.

I wouldn't call lottery tickets investments. Maybe for the one person who hit the jackpot. But not for the rest of us losers.

Yes, sure your chances are basically approaching zero, but you can't win if you don't play. Hell it's only $2 (in CA) for a single ticket. That's all you need.

So, the one winner in Minnesota wants to buy his dream car-- a 1991 NSX-- mentions it towards the end of the video.

Just saw that on the news. With 58 million, I think he'll be buying a few of them.
