Whenever a Powerball prize reaches amazing amounts of money, people rush to buy their tickets with the hope that they will be a big-time millionaire. Now, we all realize that most of the time it's just wishful thinking and we don't really expect to win.

However, someone has to win the Powerball at some point and when the prize recently climbed to $632.6 million, the seventh largest in Powerball's history, why not take a chance at all that cash? A Northeastern Wisconsin couple is certainly glad they did because their life changed forever when Powerball winners were officially announced Monday.

Tammy and Cliff Webster, who live in Oneida, which is near Green Bay, won roughly $316 million of the jackpot from drawing on Saturday, January 5. That is half of the total Powerball jackpot, which they split with another winning ticket which was purchased in California.

 ABC News is reporting the Websters, who are members of the Oneida Nation, are taking the cash option of $225 million instead of annual payments, according to the lottery. They estimate that after state and local taxes, they will take home nearly $154 million. Not a bad payday!

Everyone else can dream about what they'd do with all that money, but Tammy and Cliff get to live their dream, which they call a true blessing.

“We always believed that we had a chance to win if we played and this is a dream come true,” Tammy Webster told the lottery, which said the couple wouldn't do media interviews. “We are sincerely grateful for this incredible event."

ABC News notes that Jackson Pointe Citgo, on Packerland Drive in the Green Bay suburb of Ashwaubenon, received $100,000 for selling the winning ticket.

According to the California Lottery, the other winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Sacramento.

Powerball is played in 45 states as well as Washington, D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. The odds of winning a Powerball jackpot are one in about 292 million.
