PHOENIX (AP) -- Lottery officials say the second winner in last week's $587.5 million Powerball drawing is a married man in his 30s from the wealthy Phoenix suburb of Fountain Hills.
The man remained anonymous, and his prize was announced by officials who said he bought $10 worth of tickets.
The man opted to take the pretax cash option of $192 million. Lottery officials said his wife owns half the prize because Arizona is a community property state.
Lottery official Karen Bach said the couple was "absolutely shocked" when they checked the numbers.
Bach said the man is financially savvy and wants to take time to make a solid financial plan and set up a charity.
A couple from Dearborn, Mo., earlier collected the other half of the multistate Powerball prize. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
