'Power Pack' claims $731M Powerball jackpot
BALTIMORE (AP) — An anonymous group that nicknamed themselves “The Power Pack” has stepped forward to claim the largest prize in the Maryland Lottery’s history.
The Maryland Lottery announced Wednesday that the winners of the $731.1 million Powerball Jackpot have come forward four months after the winning ticket was purchased Jan. 20 at Coney Market in Lonaconing.
The winners chose the $546.8 million lump sum cash option, which is about $366.6 million after federal and state taxes.
Lottery officials say the group told them that they don’t plan to change their lifestyles, but they want to invest the money to take care of their families and positively impact their communities “for generations to come.”
