Another Jackpot Winner Claims Prize

The Associated Press reports…

The winner, who opted to take the cash option of $192 million, declined to take part in a news conference scheduled for Friday afternoon in Phoenix and wasn’t going to be immediately identified, the lottery said.

The ticket was sold at a store in Fountain Hills, Ariz., northeast of Phoenix.

Lottery officials will not release the name or address of the winning family during the news conference but will release information about the family’s decision to play, when they bought the winning ticket and how they responded to discovering they’d won, Lottery Director Jeff Hatch-Millersaid.

The name will probably come out eventually. The other winners, Mark and Cindy Hill, already introduced themselves and their plans for the money.
