Hoosier Lottery director Sarah Taylor said during a Monday news conference that a lump-sum of $189.1 million - after federal and state taxes are withheld - is being paid to a limited liability corporation set up on behalf of the victor.

Super Test Inc., the retailer where the winning ticket was sold in Lafayette, received a $100,000 check as well.

The man who purchased the winning ticket at SuperTest in Lafayette chose to keep his identity concealed from the public, according to Hoosier Lottery officials.

The $435.3 million Powerball jackpot is the seventh-largest in the history of the game. "He tried calling his brother later that morning, but he didn't answer".

The winning numbers for the drawing were 10-13-28-52-61 and Powerball 2.

A Lafayette man, who wishes to remain anonymous, won 435 million dollars on February 21, 2017, Powerball.

IN law allows jackpot prizes to be claimed by a limited liability corporation or legal trust, thus allowing winners to remain anonymous.

The victor has made a decision to take the winnings in one lump sum.
