Winner of US$425 million Powerball comes forward

SAN FRANCISCO -- The sole winner of February's US$425 million Powerball jackpot came forward to claim his prize Tuesday.

California Lottery officials said B. Raymond Buxton, a Northern California man, claimed the prize at the California Lottery headquarters in Sacramento.

“'Unbelievable!' is all I could muster,” Buxton said in a statement on Tuesday. “Once the initial shock passed, I couldn't sleep for days.”

The US$425 million jackpot is one of the largest lottery jackpots in U.S. history, though far from the record. The nation's biggest lottery prize was a US$656 million dollar Mega Millions jackpot in 2012. The biggest Powerball jackpot was a US$590.5 million last May.
