23-year old now youngest POWERBALL jackpot winner in Florida history


Twenty-three-year-old Thomas Yi recently won a Florida POWERBALL drawing worth $235.4 million dollars. He is now the youngest winner in the state’s lotto history.

Yi decided to take his winnings as a lump sum-- the payout was $160,038,447.27.

He still plans to go to college for either medicine or business.

“Even after matching all six numbers, I was in disbelief and took my ticket to the retailer to have it checked. The clerk at the counter instantly became excited and kept repeating that I had won the $235 million POWERBALL jackpot. I knew then that this would be life-changing,” Yi stated, according to WPTV.
