Indiana Man claims $435 million Powerball Jackpot!

Sunday, March 19, 2017

A man from Lafayette has just claimed a lottery prize worth $435.3 million with the Powerball lottery from a drawing back in February. The man's identity has been withheld as he is from Indiana, which has laws enabling winners to claim their winnings through a Limited Liability Corporation (LLC). The winner purchased his ticket from Super Test, which is located on 1600 block of Sagamore Parkway South, Lafayette in Indiana. The ticket matched up all 5 numbers which were: 10, 13, 28, 52, 61 and the Powerball number 2. The individual has opted to receive the prize as a lump-sum, which will be worth $189 million after taxes, over the gradual monthly instalments to receive the full prize amount of $453.3 million. "Once I saw the numbers matched, I couldn't sleep" he exclaimed. He called his father to let him know, who joked "I thought you were calling to say that you had won the lottery?", which ironically was exactly the reason for the call. As a very family-oriented man, the winner's plans for the jackpot include giving money to family for education, travelling to see relatives, purchase a home and a car as well as pursuing an advanced degree. He currently works at a manufacturing plant in his home town, and believes his co-workers are unaware that he's won- although he may give up his job for someone else that needs it.
