At Least Someone Won That Powerball

Sunday, August 29, 2010

Yeah, it wasn't me - but I'm not that lucky.

An 11-member, Asian-American family claimed the $85.7 million Powerball jackpot Thursday through a local attorney [...] Attorney George Bayhi said the Baton Rouge family members — made up of local business owners, professionals and college students — will share the one-lump sum payment option, which amounts to $45.77 million before taxes.

The jackpot is the second-biggest Powerball prize won in Louisiana.

The winner who signed the ticket and will receive the bulk of the windfall is Hieu Van Nguyen, the Louisiana Lottery Corporation said.
