$2.04 billion* US Powerball winner: How did they spend it and could an Aussie be next in line at LottoGo.com.au?

PRNewswire August 25, 2023

SYDNEY, Aug. 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Last November, Edwin Castro, 30 from California, was the sole winner of the record-breaking $2.04 billion US Powerball jackpot who went on to receive his winnings in February this year, having opted to accept his incredible prize in a lump-sum of $997.6m.

With nobody picking the winning numbers since 3rd August 2022, the historic draw that went on to change Castro’s life forever took place after 40 consecutive rollovers on 7th November 2022, with the lucky numbers 10-33-41-47-56 and the Powerball 10. Leading up to the draw, the jackpot was an estimated $1.9 billion but soared even further to $2.04 billion* thanks to last minute ticket sales.

Having acquired a net worth greater than Cristiano Ronaldo and Jennifer Lopez, and achieving almost the same level of wealth as billionaires Rihanna and Kylie Jenner, Castro chose to invest his winnings into two multimillion-dollar homes in California (one costing $25m and the other $4m), along with a head-turning vintage Porsche.
