Gloria MacKenzie was 85 years old when she was the sole winner of a whopping $590 million Powerball jackpot in 2013. MacKenzie was the largest single Powerball winner until Mavis Wanczyk’s incredible $758 million win. MacKenzie’s luck didn’t start with her lottery ticket but rather with the kind person that let her cut in line at the grocery store. Mackenzie bought the winning Powerball ticket using quick pick, which would have gone to the good Samaritan had they not been so kind! Of course, online Powerball players don’t have to worry about losing their winning ticket to an act of kindness, they can play US Powerball from the comfort of their home.
Nguyen Van Het didn’t win Powerball, but this lucky man from rural Vietnam won $326,000 in Vietnam at 97 years young in 2010. Nguyen knew there was no way he’d ever spend all of his winnings; he’d been a poor peasant his entire life in the same rural village where he was born. So what did he do? He gave most of it away to his fellow villagers! Nguyen also splurged on a TV for himself. To date, Nguyen is still the oldest lottery winner in the worked.
