$758m lottery winner plans to celebrate by hiding in bed
    2017-August-28  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE single biggest lottery jackpot winner in U.S. history has received her check for US$758 million, and told of her shock at her new-found fortune.

Mavis Wanczyck, 53, was asked how she would celebrate, and replied, laughing: “I’m going to go and hide in my bed.”

Wanczyck, who has worked in the same medical center in Massachusetts for 32 years, said that she had already resigned from her job to fulfill her “pipe dream.”

“Actually I just happened to find out,” she said, beaming and bashful beside her mother and sister.

The ticket which won her the largest single-winner jackpot in North American history was bought in her hometown of Chicopee, 150 km west of Boston.

She said the numbers were “kind of random, maybe birthdays.”

“There’s a thing between me and my mom and stepfather, and we all go out for dinner once a week and play Keno. And our number is four. So that was one of them.”

The mother of a 31-year-old daughter and a 26-year-old son, Wanczyck said she was driving to the check presentation ceremony Thursday and telling herself: “This isn’t true. It can’t be.’”

“Then I’m like: it is me. And I’m scared. But it’ll be OK.”

Winners can choose to receive the money in either 30 annual allotments over 29 years or to get it all at once in a single payment for a smaller amount.

The lump sum value of Wanczyck’s win is US$480 million, but she has not said how she wishes to take the money.
