Winner of Powerballs Second-Largest Jackpot Worth $1.765B Revealed

Theodorus Struyck of Frazier Park, California, Unveiled as Powerball’s $1.765B Winner

The recent Powerball drawing made headlines as Theodorus Struyck, a 65-year-old resident of Frazier Park, California, was revealed as the winner of the second-largest jackpot prize in Powerball history, totaling a whopping $1.765 billion.

Struyck purchased the winning ticket from Midway Market & Liquor in Frazier Park, a small town situated approximately 75 miles north of Los Angeles. The group who purchased the billion-dollar ticket now faces the decision of receiving the winnings through 30 payments over 29 years or opting for a one-time cash sum of $774.1 million.

California law mandates the disclosure of the winner’s full name and the location of the store that sold the winning ticket, allowing Struyck’s identity and the store’s involvement to be made public.

The winning numbers for the historic jackpot were 22, 24, 40, 52, 64, with the red Powerball number 10, with odds of winning set at a staggering 1 in 292,201,338.

The win came after the 36th drawing during a Powerball dry spell that amassed $18 million in commissions and bonuses. The family-owned Midway Market received $1 million for selling the golden ticket, with employees indicating that the winner was a frequent player of the lottery.

Although falling $28 million short of Edwin Castro’s $2.04 billion win in November of the previous year, the California Lottery highlighted the positive impact of such big wins on public education, with this win alone raising an additional $119.5 million for schools.

As of now, the winner’s whereabouts remain undisclosed, with neighbors refusing to divulge any information about Struyck’s location, adding an air of mystery to the already extraordinary win.
