Naturally, a lot of people are distraught at not having won the jackpot themselves.

When you realize your dreams of not having to go back to work tomorrow are over cause you didn't win the #Powerball

Everybody tomorrow at work. #Powerball


However, some people are claiming on social media that they've won the jackpot.

Instagram user Erik Bragg even posted a picture of the supposed winning ticket on Instagram. The post quickly garnered tens of thousands of likes and comments.
