All tag results for jackpot
Any Costco employees who didn't join that pool must be KICKING themselves right now!
20 workers at a Long Island Costco each put in $5 toward the lottery, and the group just won a $201.9 million Powerball jackpot! WOWSA!
The winning employees went for a lump sum payout instead of receiving winnings over a 20-year period, so they'll be bringing home $70.2 million after taxes.
No word yet on whether or not there will be massive job fair at their Costco soon, because the group hasn't decided if they're going to quit their jobs or not.
Here's what winner Kim Karkota had to say about it:
“We’re all dedicated to making our money last, and just to breathe easy and have a happy life."
That's certainly mature thinking, but def do SOMETHING fun with that money too! Perhaps a Hawaii vacation with loved ones?
…OR they could go on a massive shopping spree and buy out EVERYTHING from their Costco! Gotta love those oversized barrels of cheese balls. Ha!
What would U do with $3.51 million??? And yes, that's 1/20th of $70.2 mil.

Way to raise those stakes!
This will be the "largest guaranteed prize in television history!" SO intense!
Auditions start on Mar. 27 at the L.A. Sports Arena, and they'll continue at TBD venues/dates in New York/New Jersey, Miami, Chicago, Seattle, and Dallas.
Here's what Simon had to say about it:
“I like the idea that a 12-year-old on this show can compete with an older singer and a singing group. I’ve never believed there should be a cut-off age for talent, and we are going to put our money where our mouths are with the $5 million recording contract. I’m doing this show in America because I genuinely believe we can find a superstar.”
We still can't get over it! A $5 million jackpot???
Will U try out for the U.S. X Factor?

If it were currently 2012, we'd be PRETTY freaked out right now. LOLs.
Aside from one or two slight deviations, Hurley's "cursed" numbers from LOST were the Mega Millions winner last night, with a jackpot of $355 million!
We wonder if bizarre things will start happening to the two winners. Then again, they just won $355 million…what could be more bizarre than that???
