Let’s check in with the guy who won the $768M Powerball
A 24-year-old Wisconsin man stepped forward Tuesday to claim a $768 million Powerball prize, the nation’s third-largest jackpot, saying he “pretty much felt lucky” the day he bought his tickets and has been worried that people want to steal his ticket.
Manuel Franco, of West Allis, said he was sorting through $10 worth of quick-pick tickets after the March 27 drawing and thought he had checked all his tickets. Then he saw one last ticket stuck to another one, and recounted to reporters the feeling as he matched the first two numbers, then glanced at the Powerball to see it matched too.
“I was going insane,” Franco said. “I looked back at the three other numbers, they all matched. My heart started racing, my blood started pumping, I felt warm. I started screaming.”
Franco walks away with $326 million CASH in his bank account after all the taxes. Imagine the life he’s about to live. IMAGINE IT.
Numbers from :
Damian Lillard scored 50 points in the win against the Thunder.
The last player to score at least 50 points in a series-closeout win was Charles Barkley against the Golden State Warriors back in 1994. pic.twitter.com/U2ltGVLcZW
