Arizona Powerball Winner’s Name Released
PHOENIX (AP) _ Arizona Lottery officials have released the name of the man who claimed half of the record Powerball jackpot.
The Lottery says Matthew Good took the one-time payout of $192 million from the Nov. 28 drawing.
Good is in his 30s and from the wealthy Phoenix suburb of Fountain Hills, where the ticket was sold.
He bought $10 worth and kept the winning slip in the visor of his car overnight before realizing he was a multimillionaire.
After Good and his wife learned of their good fortune, he pulled together a team of financial advisers and decided to take his share this month to avoid potentially higher taxes in 2013.
The name was released in response to a public records request.
The other winning ticket was sold in Dearborn, Mo.
