Chicopee Police has said that they are providing extra patrols and checks around the home of Ms Mavis Wanczyk, the recent victor of $758.7 million Powerball prize.

"The first thing I want to do is just sit back and relax", Xinhua news agency quoted Wanczyk as saying on Thursday.

"We hope that they share it properly, also, because there's a lot of needs in this area", Bob Bolduc, owner of the chain of Pride stores, told reporters outside the location where the ticket was sold.

Lottery officials say she chose to take a lump sum payment of $480 million, or $336 million after taxes.

Another one said : "Not a dog lover, but this photo of Otis escaping Harvey with a bag of dog food is precious". Tiele Dockens spotted the resourceful pooch and made a decision to snap a photo, posting it on Facebook.

Now, with her historic win, Mavis Wanczyk is able to offer herself and her children a life they never could have imagined previously. "It's just a pipe dream that I've always had". Players can choose their numbers or let a computer make a random choice.

Wanczyk has an adult daughter and son, and was accompanied Thursday to claim her winnings by other family members.

The winning numbers in the drawing were 6-7-16-23-26 and 4 for the Powerball. "We apologize for the confusion this created and remain thrilled that a jackpot winning ticket and two $1 million winning tickets were sold here in MA".

The 53-year-old hospital worker from Chicopee quit her job on Thursday (Friday NZ Time) after learning she had won the prize, the biggest undivided lottery jackpot in United States history.

The odds of matching all six numbers remain the same, at a miserable one in 292.2 million, regardless of the jackpot prize.

The Searsport store is expected to receive a $20,000 bonus for selling the $1 million ticket, according to a report in the Portland Press Herald.

Amid all the talk about sudden wealth, it's easy to forget that the objective of Powerball is to raise money for government programs in the 44 states where the game is played, as well as Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Your chance of winning is roughly comparable to being that one lucky person out of the entire population, with everyone else losing.
