Maureen Smith and David Kalthschmidt waited two months before announcing their 1/3 winning share of the $1.5B Powerball jackpot on January 13 to the public.
Smith shared the difficulty they had to go through as they kept the news of the big win a secret from friends and family. John and Lisa Robinson of Tennessee did quite the opposite when they quickly went to the media and the Today Show to announce that they were, in fact, one of three $1.5B Powerball winners.
One ticket-holder from Chino Hills, California has yet to come forward and claim their share.
Meanwhile, the Powerball jackpot has grown to $116M with a $75.6M lump sum payment. The next drawing will be on Wednesday, March 30, 2016. You can play to win the Powerball from anywhere in the world here.
