After four months, the mystery winner of the $155.2 million Powerball lottery jackpot has come forward to claim their prize. The winner’s name is Mai Xiong and she’s a resident of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Mai is still in shock that her dream has actually come true when she never expected it to.
Mai’s winning ticket scooped the top prize in the Powerball draw that took place on the 22nd of March. She bought her lucky ticket from the Pewaukee Corner Pump which will receive a bonus of $100,000 for selling it. The owner of the gas station, Ed McMahon, said that he’s so happy the winner of the massive jackpot is somebody from the area.
“I’m sure it’s somebody who really needed this win to happen to them. Someone whose life has completely changed for the good,” he commented. He mentioned further that the gas station has sold winning tickets worth $10,000 in the past, but nothing as big as this!
Mai has decided to accept her winnings in the form of a one-off cash payment. This will amount to $93 million after taxes. She is a woman likes her privacy, so she declined any media interviews. “She is very grateful to the state of Wisconsin and its lottery program for the opportunity this prize has afforded her family,” said the Wisconsin lottery officials.
Mai took four months to claim her winnings, but that doesn’t really matter because, in accordance with Powerball rules, winners have a total of 180 days to claim their winnings. This Powerball jackpot win is the largest prize ever won by a lottery player in Wisconsin. It’s the 16th largest Powerball jackpot to have been sold in the state of Wisconsin. The last biggest win happened in October 2009 when Doug Miron won $31.4 million.
Mai’s winning Powerball numbers in the March 22nd drawing were 2-9-27-29-42 and 9.
