According to reports, the recent winner of the massive $338 Powerball Lottery has revealed his identity.
Mr Pedro Quezada has come forward to claim the win. He bought his Powerball Lottery ticket at Eagle Liquors Store in Passaic, New Jersey, late Monday afternoon.
Dominican Immigrant wins Lottery.
According to reports, Mr Quezada, a Dominican immigrant, returned to the store where the owner confirmed this was the winning Lottery ticket; as you can imagine, there were representatives of the media there as well.
Mr Quezada is a father of five and has been in the USA for over 25 years. According to reports, he has managed a grocery store for which he has had to wake up early.
Once the draw had taken place and he realized that he had won the lottery, the first person he called to share the news with was his wife. According to reports, the Grocery store is now shut. Who can blame him?
The family is now a member of the Living the American Dream Club. According to residents of the borough, they are hard-working people, as all immigrants tend to be, or rather have to be.
As you can imagine, the lucky winner of Powerball has stated that his priority was helping his family. This particular lottery win is the fourth largest Powerball Lottery jackpot, and if the winner elects to take a cash lump sum, he will receive $152 Million after taxes.
The lump sum amount payable is $221 Million, but he does have to lose the difference as Lottery winnings are taxable in the USA.
We are pretty sure he won’t mind in the least and will not be selecting the annual annuity. Who in their right mind would select a yearly amount over a cash lump sum?
The Powerball Lottery has now been reset to its default jackpot of $15 Million.
