Powerball Game Success Stories
In 2008, Paul and Sue Rosenau won $181.2 million in the Powerball drawing. The money was given to them in a lump sum. They then donated the money to help cure Krabbe Disease, a rare condition that attacks the nerve lining. It is a life-threatening disease that usually leads to death within two years.
Neal Wanless’ lump-sum payment was about $88.5 million
When Neal Wanless was a 23-year-old cowboy living in South Dakota, he was down on his luck. He had trouble paying property taxes and keeping his ranch in good shape. He was selling scrap metal to make extra money. He was the poorest rancher in Todd County. After winning the jackpot, Neal was able to pay off his debts and expand his ranch.
Neal Wanless lives on a 320-acre ranch near Mission, S.D. He purchased his winning ticket in the nearby town of Winner. His lump-sum payment will be about $88.5 million after taxes. The prize is tax-free in South Dakota, so the winner will not have to pay income tax.
Wanless plans to use the lump-sum payment to help his family with their finances. He’s also selling his Bismark Ranch so that he can spend more time with his wife, Jody. He also bought a house in Arizona. He also sold his land in Todd County to a neighbor.
Besides his family, Mr. Wanless built four homes on his property. His main home is about 6,500 square feet with five bedrooms. It has a game room with a billiard table. It also has a poker room, screening room, and bar.
Jack Whittaker’s Powerball Christmas
In 2002, Jack Whittaker won a $314 million jackpot – the largest lottery jackpot ever won by one ticket. Although he lived a life of luxury, the prize came with some tragedies. In a Washington Post magazine article from that year, he described his win and how he felt after winning the prize. Sadly, Whittaker was later struck by the lottery curse. Because some states do not allow lottery winners to remain anonymous, he started receiving requests from people wanting to know how he could spend his money.
When he first heard about the jackpot, Jack was a small town construction company owner in West Virginia. He had already accumulated a modest fortune of $17 million. In the wake of the jackpot, he pledged to give at least 10 percent of his money to Christian charities. He also donated $14 million to his Jack Whittaker Foundation. He then returned home to see his wife, Jewell.
After winning the jackpot, Jack’s daughter Brandi became Jack’s world. The couple had planned to give her his inheritance. In the following days, however, she suddenly went missing, and her boyfriend found her dead in a junked van. Although there is no official explanation for her death, the family has maintained that she had died of an overdose of cocaine and methadone.
Tom Crist’s charity after winning the jackpot
Tom Crist is donating his lottery winnings to charity after he won $40 million. The Florida governor decided to donate every dollar to his wife’s cancer charity, the Alberta Cancer Foundation. Crist’s wife died of cancer in February. He’d wanted to donate the winnings to her family in a private way, but lottery rules require a public announcement.
Tom Crist is the wealthiest lottery winner in Calgary and won $40 million in May. He’s planning to donate the money to various charities over the next several years. The former governor’s wife died of lung cancer, and Crist’s charity will focus on battling cancer.
Tom Crist waited seven months to claim his $40 million prize. He decided to donate it all to charity because he lost his wife to cancer a few years ago. The money will be donated through his family foundation. But Crist warned people to be careful of scams, because scammers might want to steal your money or account information.
Tom Crist’s generosity was truly inspiring. His charity, called “Tom Crist Cares,” will help fight cancer. Tom’s wife passed away in 2012 from cancer. His wife was 57 years old at the time of her death.
