27-Year-Old Hedge Fund Manager Wins Powerball Jackpot

Chino Hills, CA — The lottery is full of rags-to-riches tales. Now the 1 percent has its own feel-good story.

Lottery officials are pleased to announce this evening that a winner has been announced in Wednesday night’s drawing. That lucky person is 27-year-old hedge fund manager Jared Price from Chino Hills, California, a suburb of Los Angeles. According to lottery officials, Jared is one of three winners of the $1.5 billion jackpot, the largest in history. Mr. Price won by correctly matching all five numbers and the Powerball.


Price told the lottery that he had no specific plans for the money, which he will chose to receive in installments over the next 30 years. “I just want to be a normal man,” he said.  “Maybe I will buy up the next Wu Tang album, or buy another yacht.  I already have more than anyone would ever need, so this is just icing on the cake,” he continued.

According to the local ABC News affiliate, Price, who according to Forbes is one of the richest “Under 30” making millions of dollars as the head of Spiegel International, bought 15,000 Powerball tickets for $30,000 before Wednesday’s drawing. “I picked my own numbers for the ticket,” he said. “They were all random. Whatever numbers come into my head I pick.  I never play the lottery, so this is all new to me.”

Price purchased his winning ticket at a 7-11 station in Chino Hills, California. The owner of the store that sold the winning ticket will receive a $1 million payout, according to lottery officials.

Beginning in October, 2015, Powerball® became an even larger combined large jackpot game and cash game. Every Wednesday and Saturday night at 10:59 p.m. Eastern Time, we draw five white balls out of a drum with 69 balls and one red ball out of a drum with 26 red balls. This change means bigger jackpots. It also means that your odds of winning some prize are improved.  California state law requires lottery winners to publicly release their identity.

The winning numbers were 8, 27, 34, 4, 19 and the Powerball number 10.

This post has been updated to reflect the announcement of two additional winners, one in Florida and another in Tennessee.

      These were his comments after he won:
      “”I will chose to receive it in installments over the next 30 years. “I just want to be a normal man,” he said. “Maybe I will buy up the next Wu Tang album, or buy another yacht”
      I already have more than anyone would ever need, so this is just icing on the cake,” he continued.

      Thats who your happy for?

      • Thank you. What an asshole. He has enough money.

      • Satan owns the lottery.
        Satan wants me to win.
        With my winnings and my Conway self
        I will tell every sob story begging asshole
        To ask the politicians to step down in office if they want change . My lotto winnings are not an entitlement of the public sob fuckers. It will be my own treasury I will hug and love and grow. And it will not be an entrance to the sob story fuckers to invade my life.

      LIFE is like a box of chocolates, sometimes you bite into a good one. Congrats.

    • I love the fact that this guy won the Lottery, I am sure he will spend a lot of money on THINGS and people will have jobs because of that kind of spending. He will probably find places to INVEST it that will enable other businesses to thrive by using his money for a modest rate of interest… I love that this guy will have a better yacht and a newer car…and maybe a bigger house…and and and…in the end every dollar he invests and spends will circulate thru the economy many times…giving opportunity and capital to those who generate money thru BUSINESS. He may give to charity to avoid PAYING TAXES where the money seems to go to places the LOBBYISTS dictate or into the black holes of “social program administration”… The fact that this guy is RICH does not keep anyone else from being RICH…neither does it mean he will be happier or better off. There are many winners who were poor who have been cursed by having more…Think about this… If you could choose to have Prices 500+ million if you had to live alone for the next 30 years…or have your family for those thirty years and a few hundred bucks for a nice family party…every year for that thirty years…WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE?. Ill take the family and over the money…as would nearly everyone I know. Good Luck to Mr Price in all his endeavors, and may this winning ticket bless his life in ways he has not yet imagined…I just love it when other people have good fortune…whether they are rich or poor…its NOT a zero sum game…its a NEGATIVE SUM GAME think of all the money that will be put spent by government entities who receive the money not paid out…maybe those complaining about MR Price winning should petition the Government to return money to YOU…for your specific need.

      Congratulations I’m glad someone intelligent won part of it, I’m sure you will manage and
      Help as much as the government allows those less fortunate. I’m not asking for money I bought 15 , $30.00 worth and didn’t win anything so I thought the parallels were cute with our numbers and how we bought what we could afford. Take care of those that raised and mentored you, don’t hurry where you came from. Good luck and God Bless.

    Congrats to u.Lmbo I’ll buy ANOTHER YACHT!!!!!! MEANWHILE KIDS GO HUNGRY ALL OVER ! WHATEVER

    • Jeffrey Anonymous // January 14, 2016 at 8:05 am // Reply

      Really? Let’s see you reach into your wallet and pull out some money to help those hungry kids.

      • He didn’t win the lottery, so he doesn’t have the money to do so

      • The government is responsible for those hungry kids not a lotto winner
        Stop expecting the lotto winners to feed the hungry . Blame the politicians you idiot waste f human.

      • They go hungry because they are born to poor people that have no business making more babies.

  3. I guess it is nice that he is young enough to enjoy it. It really isn’t nice for people to be so negative because someone with money won. I wanted to win I was going to buy valve seal gaskets for my car, Then help my dad get running water in his home. So there is my sad story but it will come in time. I want to wish the winner only the best. Hope he puts some to a worthy cause. I am sure he will do what is best for him. I guess the comment of maybe I will buy another yacht could rub some of us a bit hard, Since I live in Michigan and had to shovel2 foot of blowing snow just to buy my 5 loosing tickets, LOL but I wont quit trying and isn’t it all about the luck? He spent a lot of money to get that one $2 ticket. So weather your poor or well off we all want to win. Don’t be a hatter just because you lost. Be happy for the winner I am enjoy..

    Congrats, but goes to show someone deserving can’t even win a portion of the winnings for important things like buying my kids a home or having enough just to pay the bills! The lottery needs to truly be random and not be fixed!

    • I’m sorry but you are a stupid idiot if you think the lottery is fixed. Give your head a wobble.

      • Someone did get caught cheating before. He installed the computer security system and rigged the number. Fyi. Look it up.

        • actually yes cheating has happened on more then 1 occasion first of all you will not win using the random numbers cause it is rigged to not produce the winning numbers which are known in advanced. they no longer do live drawings there have been lottery workers giving winning numbers ahead of time and splitting the winnings cant help but to imagine how many times that happens that they got away with. you ever notice how whenever the jackpot gets big no one will have one in months and then all of a sudden you get 3 or more winners at one time. it is all a cheat and i refuse to buy until they go back to live drawings

          • Most of the big jackpots have been single winners.. But it seems NY , California, Florida are always producing winners… I thought Powerball drawings were live.. I will look that up!.. Thanks!

          • I do not believe your comment of lottery workers getting winning numbers. The rules are if you work for the lottery you are not allowed to play the lottery in the state you are employed. Also on certain channels where ever you may live, they have a live drawing @10:59pm for Powerball Wednesday evening also Saturday evening. As far as when the drawing accures the machines are sealed in one room, with security cameras on them. One hour before the drawing they choose 2 machines and walk them across the hall into a room with security cameras and also a window for people to sit behind and watch they are then unsealed. Not one step is ever done by one person there are several people doing this one to two people at a time. Just saying be happy for others don’t get angry it only hurts you. Happy!!!!!!!!

    • Translation, I lost so someone else must have cheated.

    • Just because someone that already had lots of money wins doesn’t make it fixed. He bought 15,000 tickets, that’s $30,000. And he is one of the 3 winners, nevermind the hundreds of others who won lower amounts, some a million. I am sure that there will be many that desperately need it. Don’t be a sore loser, keep plugging away at making your life better.

    Congrats! God chooses. Enjoy it! Not gonna lie would have loved to win, even if it wasn’t all of it Judy to take care of the important things in life. But blessings to the winner. No need to hate and be negative, I’m a firm believer of today for you, tomorrow for me.

    Would be so nice if I had about two or three thousand so I could pay my four bills OFF, SSD don’t give me but fourhundredsixtyonedollers a month. That would really help me out Mr. price, this would be my dream, Thank you. ( Angel Bailey

  8. Yes, negativity aside, congrats to the winner…..however, it must have been pretty nice to have had 30 grand just lying around to spend on powerball tickets. It would have been nice to have seen someone who actually needed it win it instead of someone who is already wealthy.

    • EXACTLY!!! People are so dumb calling everyone haters. The man didn’t need the money and is basically making a joke out of winning it, whereas many others had better plans for the money, like starting foundations or giving to charities in addition to paying off their own debt. Nothing hater about being pissed that someone who really didn’t need the money just got more to piss away on stupid shit and not share with those in need. A-hole.

  9. AS I GOT OFF WORK TONIGHT I READ ABOUT PEOPLE DOWNING OTHERS WHO MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE WON.. I MYSELF AM VERY HAPPY THIS YOUNG MAN WAS BLESSED TO RECEIVE THIS GIFT . CONGRADULATIONS TO YOU <3

    Congratulations to Jared Price from CA & to the two others, from TN & FL who also had winning tickets! Like Laura Hostetter I too am tired of all the negativity. Some things are just meant to be!

  11. What an arrogant, douche bag thing to say. How about” I really don’t need the money, maybe I will find some useful way to help the world’?

    • Right! I wouldn’t have one bit of a problem with it if he had said he was going to do something useful with the money instead of buy HIMSELF more toys.

    • Yeah this guy really sucks.

    • Or maybe, just MAYBE, he was being sarcastic because self-righteous pricks like you were going to give him shit for “succeeding while being rich” anyways. Even if he wasn’t being sarcastic, screw you.

  12. Robin Delage // January 13, 2016 at 11:24 pm // Reply

    He bought a ticket . Fair game

  13. “Buy ANOTHER YACHT” ? I have been out of work for 6 months , with no prospects fo work. I am sure there are others that would really appreciate even a portion of what this man won. I hope he finds a way to help those in need.

    • No work for 6 mos. is crazy. There are jobs out there, you just need to be willing to do “whatever”. Your negativity is just going to keep you down.

      • “There are jobs out there” – But there’s someone with a say to if you have that job or not. Some don’t want to hire even if you have excellent references and credentials.

          McDonalds isn’t going to turn down someone with “excellent references and credentials”.
          Get over yourself, Kay.

  14. Wish it had of been me, especially since Price didn’t need the money as stated. Best thing for Price to do is send a couple million to me.
    Leet me see how it feels to have icing on the cake. I would be very happy.

    Congrats man, on top of being a 27 year old rich guy, you go and win the lottery. Thats awesome. 30,000 is a lot to spend on tickets man…..like i didnt know people could really spend that kind of money like that. Crazy. Feed some hungry kids out there. I would. Congrats again.

  16. Congratulations to the young successful man who won. It would be an awesome feeling not to need money. God Bless you! Again, congratulations!

    Yet another example of how the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. A hedge fund manager with access to more money than he could possibly know what to do with, who achieved that wealth by destroying lives (because that’s what hedge fund managers are best at) now has more money that he doesn’t need and a greater ability to destroy lives. I take solace in the fact that they’ll soon “Feel The Bern.”

  18. Congrats man if your taking applications send me one 1325 Mayfair ave Fremont Ne 68025 ps my name is Michael snider single father of 3. I hope your grateful and generosity to people like my self who work but no the struggle is real. 1.9 million would get my family threw college and a home.

    Congratulations!! I would have been happy with the 30,000 he spent on his tickets…..

  20. Hoping he will help others in this world that really need that money

  21. Thats great bud. I spent the last 20 bucks I had and the past two weeks of strategising a plan to win. The odds were not in my favor, but I came damn close. I’ve recently moved back home to my grandparents house due to my grandmother passing and no one left to take care of grandpa, haven’t been able to find a job, luckily mortgage is cheap, but I prayed my grandmother and the lord would mystically work in my favor so I can repair this home that is falling down around me and instead a wealthy business owner in Cali. gets it cause he can out play my ass a thousand times over. A yacht? I would be happy with a new toilet and a remodeled kitchen so the rats and squirrels can’t come in the house through the rotted out cabinetry. Tent city, which is next door to my house, holds Tyler, tx’s homeless residents. I’ve helped many of them since my family began buying this house 15 years ago and I hoped to build a shelter next to my property to get them out of the cold. I hope you decide to do something worth while with your new fortunes instead of just view at a little more icing, but I guess thats how it goes when your already ballin’. Its easier to turn your head and pretend you didn’t see that guy sittin’ on the curb.-

  22. congratulations young man God bless

  23. Congratulations young man!may God instruct you on how to use that money! May He counsel and watch over you!Thats my prayer for you. Remember to help the poor.

  24. I have no clue if your the one that won the lottery, but if you did I want to say CONGRATULATIONS! I’m in NC, I wanted to buy a ticket so bad but I just had that instinct that I wouldn’t win. You need to get a HUGE YACHT and on the back I would put the numbers on the back and underneath it in BIG LETTERS SAY “I WON”!Send it to the people who are criticizing instead of saying congrats and fuck them! He’ll I was a Paramedic for 16yrs, and a part time Pediatric Nurse for 5 years and someone decided that they wanted to die and pulled out in front of me breaking my pelvis so I’m on disability. I have 2 kids. My husband, whom is a Police Officer left a year ago this month. He has not gave me 1 penny and I haven’t asked. I did go for Child Support and that’s in February….Anyway, what I’m trying to say is you put you pants on just like everyone else and your young so go buy an island, build a nice house, and do whatever the FUCK you and your significant other wants to do and do it. For 16yrs I’ve seen horrific things. Anything, Anytiime, Anywhere, you never know when the riper will show up..
    Congratulations Again!!!!

    • I am looking for a sponsorship for my race team for this year and I am giving 50 % of my winning to charity for cancer and Domestic violence and the other 50 % will go back in to the car. And I have two family member with cancer and I no how hard it is too raise the money for the charity for the people with cancer and Domestic violence and my home track is lucas oil speedway in wheatland Missouri and I would like to travel to other tracks for the charity and the class that I will be running is the imca factory stock car class and the pay out starting at 500. 00 to 10, 000 to win and there are a lot of races this year and I just want to say thank you and it is a great tax right off for you.

    • All these people with their son stories no one cares about your sob stories.
      If I win I won’t give a penny to charity or any sob telling motherfucker.
      And I would claim the check with another sign saying I won’t give anyone a penny .
      And say satan owns the lottery talk to satan and ask him for a penny . But don’t even bother asking me assholesaround the world. Go ask obama for money this is my win and mine only and not to be shared . Only shared with my dog that’s it.

      • Correction: Satan owns the lottory but even satan wants me to win. And actaully if you ask satan to help you win the lotto it won’t help you to win.

        And the moment I get the news of winning the lotto, I will make it clear that no human will come to my house knocking asking me for money . If they do they get arrested for harassment . And anyone who will ask me for money will get a simple fuck you die bitch answer .

  26. Congrats to the winner!! No matter what the story is he won the lottery.

  27. God bless!! Congrats

  28. Lucky guy.

  29. There are 123 million households in the United States. Each powerball winner will receive a cash payment of $310 million. . .if each of the 3 winners were to give $500,000 to every household in this country, it would create an entire country of millionaires. Each winner would still have $250 million. Come on folks — share the wealth!! How about that for an economic stimulus package for our economy !!

    • Math… You have not idea what it is. 310M / 123M = less than 3 dollars. I am amazed that you are even able to use the internet.

      • Severus Snape // January 14, 2016 at 7:23 pm // Reply

        Crying… I’m freaking crying… your response was pure poetry.
        How do people like this make it through the day without killing themselves??

    • I wish it was true, Nan. But if your initial figures are correct and there are 3 winners of 310milllion each, that means the total winnings for those three will amount to 3winners x $310,000,000 per winner = $930,000,000 in all. If we divide the total winnings by the number of households you give for the U.S., we see that $930,000,000 / 123,000,000households = about $7.56/household. Even working together, the lucky three winners couldn’t make us all millionaires, let alone “thousandaires”. Just like if there were 200 million homes than had to split 200 million dollars, each home would get a dollar… although you almost had me fooled.

    • Dennis Gallagher // January 14, 2016 at 11:20 am // Reply

      First of all the winner in this story is not taking the cash payment, so he doesn’t get $310 million he gets 30 yearly payments. Second, $319,000,000 divided by 123,000,000 equals 2.52. If they all do it you’ll get $7.56. Enjoy the burger (or you could buy a calculator.)

    • Hahaha…wow, that is some TERRIBLE math. Even giving each of your theoretical 123,000,000 households only $500 would result in a total of $61.5 billion. Your proposal would cost an order of magnitude more, at $61.5 TRILLION. That’s $61,500,000,000,000. Each winner, supposing a cash option of $310 million, could give $500,000 to exactly 620 homes.

  30. Well it seems to me that people that win already have money if your tivh why try to get even note be happy with what you have, anyways luck was on your side me myself if I would have won out my two kids in college, bought a house one for my parents back home in va and donated to my church.

    if one day i get to win the lottery or at less 1 million. i buy a house or at less a trailer home for my family . because i have 3 kid’s. and i wanna house for my kids

  32. Congrats to him! I am blessed beyond measure not because of money but because of love, freedom and health, but I think this man who is already a million should share some of his wealth with people who truly are in need of it!!! God bless him and I hope he chooses what he’s does with this money christenly!!!

  33. God chooses? And God chose a 30 year old hedge fund manager? His comment was “I might buy ANOTHER yacht!”? Congrats to the winner. I truly believe buy a ticket, your fair game. But God doesn’t choose. It’s luck! 100% luck!

  34. well…..$hoot

  35. Like they say it takes money to make money!! You got lucky is all I can say..congrats!! I entered a juzzuci contest one time and won same strategy as yours..pick your numbers from blank to blank its gotta be one of them. Enjoy life be happy and don’t worry about the negative crap…you won..they didn’t..

    Congratulations! On your win! Sounds as though you are a responsible young man. Don’t forget to give to the homeless shelters for food and clothing in your area. Again, Congratulations you lucky duck you
    !!!!!

  38. Excuse me Mr. Price, if you have no big plans for your money you can always share with me. I need help expanding my business. It’s to busy for just me! I just want to be a normal person as well. Please and thank you 😉

  39. It doesnt matter who wins the money. The principle is : are these winners going to help the ones who are starving, homeless, can’t afford to go the hospital,cant get education. Don’t be greedy and selfish!

  40. That’s some pretty sweet icing! Congratulations!

  41. wahooooooooooo enjoy your money be nice if you would feed some hungrey kids and help our homeless Troops

  42. The only issue I have with this story is that he chose to receive the money over the next thirty years. The lotto has always been a rip-off because 1) it gets halved by taxes and 2) if you spread your winnings out by year, you’re giving the government control of doling it out to you in increments. Who wants the government to be in control of that much of their money for that long a period of time? Who says they’ll even be able to pay in the next fifteen years? LOL Is it in some kind of escrow?? Best to just take the lump sum and increase the wealth myself. But that’s just my opinion.

  43. Congrats to all the winners! He purchased a (or multiple) ticket just like anyone else…as long as he didn’t pay for it with stolen money, it is rightfully his! I personally run a food and clothes closet to help needy families…I certainly pray that each winner will help someone in need. There are so many Americans that are living in poverty, not knowing where their next meal is coming from…a small portion of the winnings can help so many. Just my opinion. I am happy for the ones that did win! Congratulations to each one! God bless you all!

    One person-“He bought a ticket, fair game.”
    Another person-“No, he bought 15,000″
    Me-” He payed, he played, he was lucky to win, stop being jealous and try again.”

  45. First I want to congratulate you on your winnings. Going though really hard times, but we seem to stay above water. God Bless you Mr. Price. I don’t know if you have been so poor in your life time. I get my food mostly from food pantries. If it was not for them we would not have much to eat. I could tell you my sob story, but that wouldn’t do any good. I just want to say, It would be nice if you gave with your heart and soul, because really All there is, is love.

  46. Can I have 1 dollar

  47. What’s a yacht?

  48. Please include my family in your list of charitable contributions.Just call 1-800-EAT-SHIT!

  49. LOL I know deep down no one feels great he won. Come on
    he already makes more then most will ever see in a yr.
    Then admits to already owing a ”Yacht” Why should anyone
    feel good he won? He’s probably some rich snob.

  50. We have only 2000 homeless people in our city, I wanted so bad to build home for them. It will be nice if he can help them find home so they can enjoy with their family and their pets. I being helping them for 8 years feeding and give whatever I can, me and my family every week. We cook for them. But I’m happy for you. Congratulation. I’m thankful, part of the billion dollars is in our State. Wow. So we are all blessed if you really look at it. He will pay his tax. Wow. Mr Brown is happy. Mayor is happy. Wow. I’m happy. Thank God for the tax that will go to the educations and many other needs of our State of California. I’m praying that God will use you to be a blessing to our homeless family’s that are sleeping on the streets and park in a very cold winter. God blessed our State, city’s, God blessed America.

  51. Congratulations to all the winners. God bless you and give you wisdom and peace. Don’t forget God comes first! Blessings

    I love how he said he would buy a wu tang album. You go sir! Make em’ mad as hell. Who cares what he does with the money! All you haters…lol instead of playing tennis lotto hoping to win to pay your bills maybe you should go out and get a JOB! work for it! Not everything is handed to you!

  53. Of all people, did he have to go and buy 15,000 tickets?! There are people who really could have used that money wisely. This man is greedy. Did he really think he didn’t have enough money or was he just trying to show off?

  54. I just want to say congrats …. and please help all the lonely dogs that are hungry and need a good home … Please help them … thanks and God Bless

  55. We spent our last $20 on this powerball my kids were praying that we get something out of it.. smh they were so sad at the end.

    Congrats to you only you know what it’s like to have all that money to just give for powerball etc..

  56. Rich people should not be allowed to play the power ball, mega millions or any other lottery !!!! I am just saying…

  57. Im just wondering why someone who already makes millions of dollars a year is even finding the need to play…who has 30,000$ laying around to blow on the lottery? And if they do why are you playing?!?

    Sigh…

  58. F him

    The rich just got richer

  60. UGH….I was waiting to see who won the PB …..I was hoping it was going to be someone who really needed it and had a good story behind it. That’s great he spent 30 thousand dollars to buy the winning ticket…..it’s also great that he will just buy another yacht or whatever. Must be nice.

  61. I had hopes of opening a school for autistic children in Nebraska..congrats on winning big..

  62. Well congrats to him for winning. BUT, I do have to say, I REALLY WISH someone who needed it, or at least someone who would help others, would have won. I have been reading posts from all over on FB and there are SO many people who would have helped homeless, vets, animals etc. in addition to helping their families. Him, he’ll buy another yacht. Geez if he is that rich, and now much more rich, would it kill him to help people?

  63. Congratulations, nice to have money to buy all those tickets. Wish I was like that to spend. Here I and my husband with a disability cannot work and I’m out there working to make ends meet.

    15,000 Powerball tickets for $30,000 before Wednesday’s drawing. “I picked my own numbers for the ticket,” he said. “They were all random. Whatever numbers come into my head I pick.

    Fascinating! Please tell us your secret of randomly picking 15,000 number COMBINATIONS using your head. W.O.W.

    And one ended up with the jackpot! You should write a book and make gazillions more!

    I’ll take some money if you don’t need a lot of it.!! Please and thanks…. I could pay for my new motor for my truck and pay off my bills for now…

  66. Nobody is owed anything or is entitled to the winnings. He paid and played just like everyone else, but was the lucky one. Congrats to him! Haters saying, “he has enough money already…blah blah blah…” make me sick. I’m sure he worked hard to get to where he’s at currently, so, whatever.

    • Worked hard… Yeah right.

    • Yes he must have worked hard or rather been very clever and smart – the guy manages hedge funds. BTW, he didn’t play like everyone else. He bought 15,000 tickets. I’d say the guy is really really smart. He effectively increased his personal odds of winning by a substantial amount. I would have liked to seen that list of numbers he said he picked out of his head. Or the stack of 3,000 powerball play tickets he took to the store to buy them.

  67. The fact that so many are hoping and telling him what he should do with the winnings is what I find amazing. Deep down if you won, everyone wants hekp, handouts, support, or tells their story of stuggle in hopes that the winner will see it and maybe just maybe give a little your way. It’s a huge responsibility and tough decisions. You can’t help everyone and staying anonymous seems to be the only way to go these days if you win. Just food for thought. It’s one thing when your on the losing side. It’s another when you have the win. Be honest with yourself on what you would truly do with the winnings and how to protect yourself in the long run. Good intentions can lead to bad decisions as well.

    This guy is a major douche………….

  69. Sorry everyone, but spending $30,000 on tickets and then winning, isn’t considered lucky. It’s called being greedy. If I were him, making comments like that, I would be investing most of my money in security. Good luck Bruh. Congrats on buying your prize. Do something decent in your life and pick a charity to offset your horrible karma that’s headed your way.

  70. I’m truly happy for him… Of course I wanted to win, but everything happens for a reason.. It was my very first time playing thinking I could win and pay off all the bills I have.. But honestly my biggest dream and goal is to see my kids Graduating college I thought it would be great to have the money already,,but when you work hard for what you want, you deserve it more or at least that’s what I think.. They are going to college with or without Powerball Money!

  71. What a jerk I hate guys like him

  72. Lucky you but don’t get a wife that takes you for as much as she can get. You know how to play the money game but if you want to give to charity…please think of giving to one that can REALLY do some good. Fund the science of giving sight to people who have lost theirs even those who have lost sight by having severed optic nerves. they would (blind people) love to see again one day if it could happen. Thank you so much if you do. Maybe my own son will be able to see again too. Hopeful and congrats to you.

  73. Yes, it would have been nice to see someone other than a guy who already makes millions win it…but I wish the guy all the luck in the world in avoiding that whole lottery curse thing. Way to taunt Karma with smug comments Price. Oh “…buy up the next Wu Tang album, or buy another yacht.” But it is what it is. He just proved that saying how “It’s takes money to make money” is all. Can’t help but wish he would have been someone like Manoj Bhargava. Can you imagine the awesome things that would have been achieved? The people that would have been helped? Yes…good luck to ya Price. May God send what you truly are deserving of your way!

  74. What a greedy asshole! Go fuck yourself Mr Price!

    • DANG PEOPLE. THIS STORY IS FAKE. YOU ARE GETTING ALL UPSET, DEFENSIVE OVER SOMETHING THAT DID NOT HAPPEN. GOOGLE UNITED MEDIA PUBLISHING, THEY ARE A SATIRICAL NEWS SOURCE. PLEASE RESEARCH BEFORE JUST BELIEVING EVERYTHING YOU SEE ONLINE.

  75. seriously…………. it’s all about luck of the draw. however, it would be sweet if all the top winners would buy a hotel / motel. covert the rooms to small apartments and give them to our homeless vets. there are over 50,000 homeless vets in the US. of those, 10 to 15 commit suicide everyday. our government cares nothing about them

  76. wow
    My plan if I would have won was to, keep 100 million, the rest, well I wanted to help people and animals. Sure I was going to be greedy and get my wife and my health up to snub first, buy a nice house, and land, and invest into my films and see what happens. So the 340,000,000 would be helping alot of other people and animals. I might write and direct graphic indie horror, but I just want help, sorry this ass hat won… yeah douche go buy another yacht…… Hummmm Guy makes millions a year, won millions….. guy makes 10K a year well, still working hard to get there 😉

  77. Congrats… 27 yrs.old and self made money to buy a yacht that’s great… and to have 30,000 dollars to play on lotto kudo’s to you young man! You very well could have lost it,but you won…. Enjoy my friend!!!

  78. What I don’t understand is, why would ANYONE that is rich, even Think about playing the powerball?! One answer comes to mind- Greedy, Selfish Low Life’s.

  79. First and foremost, Congratulations Mr Price on your surprise win. I’m from Kenya East Africa. Whatever happens does so for a reason. When you plan a bit of your Charitable Activities, I request you to remember one of our School in which I am Rector with poor needy and orphaned students for whom I always ponder what to do to get some little help for their fees and livelihoods. Be blessed+

  80. EVERYONE SO QUICK TO JUMP ON THE BAN WAGON TO SHRED THIS YOUNG DG OR WINNING BUT REGARDLESS IT’S LIKE THIS HE WON HE BOUGHT TICKETS LIKE EVERYONE ELSE DID THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS HE WON AND YOU DID NOT ..IT REALLY DOESN’T MATTER IF HE ALREADY HAD MONEY …GUESS WHAT HE HAS MORE NOW AND ITS HIS TO DO WHAT HE WANTS …I THINK EVERYONE IS MAD BECAUSE YES YOU HAD TO GO BACK TO WORK LIKE EVERYONE ELSE . I WORK VERY HARD AS A NURSE … SPEND LONG HOURS AWAY FROM MY FAMILY BUT YEP I GOT UP AND GO ….I CAN HONESTLY SAY MY HEART IS OVER JOYED FOR HIM.

    • DANG PEOPLE. THIS STORY IS FAKE. YOU ARE GETTING ALL UPSET, DEFENSIVE OVER SOMETHING THAT DID NOT HAPPEN. GOOGLE UNITED MEDIA PUBLISHING, THEY ARE A SATIRICAL NEWS SOURCE. PLEASE RESEARCH BEFORE JUST BELIEVING EVERYTHING YOU SEE ONLINE.

  81. I love to see all the poor people who are haters squirm at the fact that a rich man won the lottery. It really bugs you doesn’t it. Yet it’s the poor who would be irresponsible and greedy with their money. With great money comes power, and with great power comes responsibility, a gift that only the wealthy can wield, and something the poor will never grasp. Some people like the (lower class) just need to accept when they’ve been defeated.

  82. BOTH STORIES ARE FALSE…………RESEARCH BEFORE BELIEVING WHAT YOU READ.

  83. Hello Mr. Price,

    I t is interesting that your family name it is Price since you won one of the greatest Prices Lol I hope that you could consider becoming a producer of some movies ideas I have, here it is my info; https://about.me/JasonMorciglio

  84. What a fucking asshole.
    “I just want to be a normal man,” he said. “Maybe I will buy up the next Wu Tang album, or buy another yacht. I already have more than anyone would ever need, so this is just icing on the cake,”
    If you already have more money then you need why the fuck did you play the lotto?
    Hope someone shoots your ass.

    • I think it is sad that so many have very nasty things to say.. We all have bills that we would have loved to pay off.. It is a very hard time for all of us.. I raised 2 kids alone and everyday is a struggle for me but yet, i dont have bad to say.. I will continue to try even knowing that it is unlikely I will ever hit a lottery!.. This man had every right to win since he contributed to the lottery… He may decide to help some charities , which will help many people.. We all should just keep trying… The only issue I have is, how legit is the lottery?.. It seems it is always the same states winning.

  85. Fuck that guy

  86. You know its not even that he won. The lottery is random and maybe he is actually a good guy. That’s fine. It’s that, someone who was already rich, deliberately bought thousands of tickets and doesn’t have plans for the money. If it doesn’t mean anything to you why did you even bother? I know why I and most people I know try, because we could use the money, he doesn’t even seem to care. This makes me sad.

  87. Stop bitching haters,its not going to change anything,it is what it is!

  88. I could of used some of that money, not millions but 250,000 could have gotten me out of debit and end my struggling.. But congratulations to the winner.. Whatever he chooses to do with it, its his to decide..

  89. Fuck you buddy.. I hope you die a slow miserable painful death you capitalistic money mongering piece of shit

  90. I’m not upset that he won.. but he didn’t have to be an ass about it.

  91. Omg…everyone saying that just because he has money means he doesn’t deserve it, it is ridiculous, do you ever think he works hard for the money he has? There’s always someone in a worse situation than you. So for someone to say they could have used the money more than the next person is sad. I’m sure they don’t go through everyone who bought tickets to pick out the “ones who need it more or deserve it more.” Sure there are people who could have used the money for things but he bought a ticket and won fair and square. Don’t buy lottery tickets EXPECTING to win. What do you think he would have done if he spent $30,000 on tickets and didn’t win jack shit. He would have been shit outta luck just like everyone who bought tickets and didn’t win.. Sure millions of dollars would help anybody in finacial hardship, but at the end of the day you don’t play and EXPECTING for all financial problems to go away with a ticket purchase. Did he say he wasn’t going to help his community or donate to a good charity?, I’m sure he never said that. Bitching about another person winning the lottery who “DOESN’T NEED IT OR DESERVE IT” does not change the next persons money situation. At the end of the day you go to bed and wake up in the same situation, complaining does nothing. The only thing we can do is congratulate the man and hope he does some good with the money. Goes for anyone(deserving or not) who wins the lottery.

  92. I loved to play golf in Chino Hills. I am pleased that someone as you won. I am sure you will use your money wisely. God Bless

    What a dick. Go buy another yacht you greedy prick.

  94. Congratulations! But pay it forward for some who needs it or you may regret it later on. Kindsness is best.

  95. OMG, all of you fucking morons, do you seriously think that any of what you read up there was real? If you think he actually said “Maybe I will buy up the next Wu Tang album, or buy another yacht. I already have more than anyone would ever need, so this is just icing on the cake,” then do you also believe he sat down and filled out 15,000 lottery tickets? Because according to the article, he picked every number himself for each of his tickets. Such stupid people…

    Hey all he has to do is look at my fb and see what one thing could help my family lol

  97. Congrats! Do something to make a difference. This world needs a lot of help and you sound like a smart guy. God bless.

  98. As I do agree with its all about luck I do not have some bleeding heart story but I would plead with at least one of the winners to say ,,” hey dudes and dudettes if you’re feeling a little generous could you send an old Carpenter a little chump change somewhere in the amount of $350,000.00.. I promise it will go to a good cause…I’m sure you can find me here in Columbia IL. or here on facebook.. I ll be waiting.”.

  99. You know i was reading all of thoes lettrrs omg. You people needto get a grip. You all are sore loses. Im glad someone young won. I have been playing the lottery for 25 yrs and i will still keep on playing. It is only money.

    When are you idiots going to realize that this is a HOAX?

  101. Jared- could I get 1 millon dollars? I was originally going to ask for 1 thousand dollars but hey what’s the harm in asking or I’ll take frozen on ice tickets for my daughter 🙂

  102. many congrats and of course Im jealous (a happy jealous) if this is to reach someone the right one..help ..recovering addict of 2 years. alone in life.. no one has faith in me and my new little gift store that I invested everything in….help me build it bigger and better..prove to everyone im not a total loss to society

  103. an investment would go greatly to a gift store at a tourist attraction..port Clinton ohio..famous for fishing in the great Lake Erie…I sit outside this store to greet people ALL day long…making people smile and laugh….its good for my soul…store sucks I admit it…I built it with waitress money…lol

  104. There is no earthly reason he deserved MORE. This is the most sickening examples of the rich get richer and “more” IS better I have seen to date. This rich maggot can afford to buy 15,000 tickets and wins. Why not right? Comforting to know a self-absorbed money grubbing snot-nosed schmuck won. Just when I was hoping that someone deserving would win, he gets to buy one more yacht – he has to have a matching set doesn’t he? I am sickened beyond words. Here is the deal. He has to be a manipulative thief to thrive in his current industry, of course he will share with poor 🙂 How do you think he got rich in the first place? Investors = swindlers, get a grip. At least he can buy a Rolls to carry it to the bank from his already existing estate.
    I think I will go quietly hurl.

  105. It’s about time someone won Powerball who isn’t some backwoods cousin f****r who has never even seen a $100 bill. At least this guy knows how to deal with and invest his money. Way too many PB winners end up broke after a few years of spending cash as though it will never run out. Good for him; maybe some of the haters can go work for him on his new yacht.

  106. This guy just open up a can of worms for the rich to buy thousands or million of tickets just cause they can and now middle class would never have a life changing moment they need a law where as if u rich u can’t play just like if u rich yo taxes low

  107. with 319 million people living in the world why not start a fund like powerball and instead of winning circulate the funds where needed one person should not have all that money where people are starving and living under bridges we see how much can be raised don’t know maybe I’m selfish

  108. can you help me i need money funding sense you win share with the poor people then learn how to share okay
