It’s a dream you and I possibly share. The dream of winning big in the lottery and being able to have a more relaxed way of living. We still have to dream, but not some lucky folks in Chino.

It’s been about 6 months, and finally the winners of the largest lottery prize in California history have emerged to claim their prize worth $528.8 million. Can you imagine their excitement?

The winners are Marvin and Mae Acosta, who bought the lucky winning lottery ticket at the 7-Eleven at 4092 Chino Hills Parkway in Chino Hills.

If you’re curious, there were three nationwide winning tickets that matched all six winning numbers in the January 13th, $1.6 billion dollar Powerball drawing, the largest in U.S. lottery history. The numbers were – 4-8-19-27-34 and Powerball number 10.

The couple have decided to take the lump sum cash option. That means they’ll still have a good chunk of change in the amount of $327.8 million, that’s before federal taxes.

I would take a long vacation and travel the world if that would’ve been me who won.

Guess the rest of us still have to get up everyday and dream of making it big and winning something big ourselves. While we wait we still have a few lottery options that await us every week, don’t we? 🙂
