There’s no word yet on how 84-year-old Zephyrhills resident Gloria MacKenzie is going to spend the half billion dollars she won in the recent Powerball drawing — but let’s hope she’ll spend a few bucks on new digs!
Curious neighbors in the Pasco County city have just started descending on MacKenzie’s modest rented duplex on Lane Road, a property appraised at $100,000!
MacKenzie’s is about to change drastically as she came forward this afternoon as the winner of the $590.5 million prize, one of the biggest jackpots in lottery history.
“We are grateful for this blessing of winning the Florida Lottery Powerball jackpot and appreciate the interest of the public, state of Florida and the lottery,” MacKenzie said in a statement.
“We hope that everyone will give us an opportunity to maintain our privacy for our family’s benefit.”
