Here's the full story:
The player who purchased the winning $163.2 million-winning Powerball ticket in Lawrenceburg, Indiana. has claimed their riches through GMTR Investments, LLC. GMTR Investments, LLC was represented by Attorney Tim Michaels. His clients elected to take the cash option and received a one-time lump sum payment of $97,966,541 before taxes.
"They [the winners] are a group of individuals from Cincinnati," said Michaels. "From what I understand, they like Powerball better than what they can get in the Ohio Lottery." The jackpot-winning ticket was purchased at Circle K (Mac's) in Lawrenceburg.
This win marks back-to-back Powerball jackpots won in Indiana. The Powerball jackpot had been rolling since it was last hit Nov. 22, 2008 in Indianapolis. The winner of that prize, SWS Investments, LLC claimed their $57.6 million prize on Dec. 24, 2008. "They are very appreciative," said Michaels. "To the Lottery Commission, thank you."
