Winner of record $590.5 million Powerball lottery jackpot surfaces!

Florida Lottery on Wednesday revealed the identity of the $590.5 million USA Powerball jackpot winner during the May 18 draw.

Winner Gloria C. MacKenzie, 84, of Zephyrhills, Florida claimed her record-breaking lottery winnings: one-time, lump-sum payment of $370,896,780.84.

While the winner immediately left with her lawyers, it was reported that she had agreed to split the winnings with her son, Scott.

This series of jackpot rollovers generated more than $125 million in sales for the Florida Lottery, resulting in more than $50 million for Florida's Educational Enhancement Trust Fund (EETF).
