Powerball Winners in MN 18 Aug 11

The winners of the largest Powerball jackpot in Minnesota history want all the money up front.

Thomas and Kathleen Morris of Burnsville decided to take the lump-sum cash payment option.

The couple recently claimed the 229-million-dollar jackpot from the August 10 Powerball drawing. Selecting the cash payment option means they will get 123-million-dollars, but after taxes the Morris’ will wind up with nearly 84-million.
