PHOENIX (AP) – Lottery officials say the second Powerball winner is a man in his 30s from Fountain Hills, Ariz.
The man bought one of two tickets in last week's record $577.5 million drawing, but he isn't stepping into the spotlight just yet.
The Arizona Lottery said Friday the winner opted to take the cash option of $192 million. He declined to take part in the news conference held Friday in Phoenix.
The ticket was sold at a convenience store in Fountain Hills, northeast of Phoenix.
Lottery officials wouldn't release the name or address of the winner.
