The Powerball lottery awards $ 235 million in prize money to a lucky 23-year-old who resides at Land O ‘Lakes, Florida. The drawing took place on March 27, but 23-year-old Thomas Yi only showed up a few hours earlier at the Powerball offices to verify the authenticity of the ticket.
Thomas Yee chose to take back his winnings in one go. Now that the tax is deducted, he took home about $ 160 million.
“Even after all six numbers matched, I was suspicious and took my ticket to a retailer to have it checked,” Ye told Florida Lottery. “The employee at the counter was immediately excited and repeated that I won the $ 235 million Powerball jackpot. Then I knew this was going to change my life.”
Thus, Yi became the youngest person to win an Arsenal award in Florida. However, money will not change your immediate plans because your goal is to complete undergraduate studies in a field related to medicine.
Yi purchased her grand prize-winning ticket at Publix, located at 16560 North Nebraska Avenue in Lutz. The retailer will receive an additional commission of $ 95,000 to sell the winning Powerball ticket.
The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292,201,338. Arsenal draws are held every Wednesday and Saturday.
Florida Lottery graphics are broadcast on 17 stations across the state and are available for viewing on their website, where winning numbers are also posted.
