Lottery officials: Powerball winner is man in 30s

Posted: Updated:

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.
