A Newport, Rhode Island resident was the winner of the $336.4 million Powerball jackpot last month. 81-year old Louise White slept with the winning ticket hidden in her bible before she finally came forward.  She plans to take the $210 million lump-sum payment.

White’s lucky ticket was among three winning tickets with random numbers purchased on a $9 wager.  A news conference was held at the lottery headquarters in Cranston.  White didn’t really say much other than she was, “very happy” and “very proud.”

White’s prize is the sixth largest in U.S. history, but the highest ever for Powerball, according to officials.  The top lottery jackpot in U.S. history was a $390 million Mega Millions prize.  That jackpot was won back in March of 2007.
