Gloria C. MacKenzie, 84, of Zephyrhills, Florida, is noted as the largest sole lottery winner in U.S. history, claiming the entire $590.5 million Powerball jackpot in May 2013. MacKenzie opted to take a lump sum of $370 million, which came to about $278 million after taxes, according to The Associated Press. She has kept a low profile since her win, being photographed out shopping at Walmart and for dinner with her son in June 2013.
