The winners of the biggest lottery jackpot in U.S. history, January 2016's $1.586 billion Powerball, included two married couples, David Kaltschmidt and Maureen Smith of Florida and John and Lisa Robinson of Tennessee. Both took their winnings in one lump sum payment of $328 million before taxes. There was also a winner in California, but that ticket holder has not yet been identified.
