$399.4 million Powerball winner claims prize, remains anonymous
If you’re still checking drawers and pockets amid dreams of a misplaced winning Powerball ticket, you can stop.
The winner of last week’s $399.4 million jackpot has claimed the prize but has chosen to remain anonymous.
The winning ticket, which awarded the fourth-largest prize in Powerball history, was sold at the Murphy USA gas station on Augusta Road near Interstate 20 in Lexington Wednesday afternoon.
The winner used the quick pick option, in which a computer randomly generates the ticket numbers.
The winner chose between a $233 million lump sum payment or payments of about $13 million per year for 29 years.
