24-year-old Wisconsin man wins Powerball jackpot

Powerball winner in Wisconsin claims $768 million prize ‘I’m ready and I know how to say

The victor of a Powerball lottery ticket worth $768.4 million is 24-year-old Manuel Franco of Wisconsin.

Manuel Franco says he had a "lucky feeling" when he bought the winning ticket at the Speedway in New Berlin on March 27. When checking the winning ticket, he said he knew it was something special when he matched the first number. Franco said his heart started racing when he realized one of the 10 individual tickets he bought a Powerball drawing last month was a victor.

Franco will opt for the single pay-out option of $477 million, leaving him with a cash-sum of more than $326 million after tax.

The Speedway where the ticket was sold will get $100,000.

The $768.4 million win ranks behind the $1.586 billion Powerball total shared by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee in January 2016 and the single $1.537 billion Mega Millions jackpot victor from SC last October.

'It feels like a dream - like any moment I'm going to be back in my room, laying and its going to be a disappointment, ' he said in a Tuesday press conference.

"My mom, she thought I was in trouble". I don't want to embarrass myself on live TV, but it was incredible. And she's like, 'You need to tell me the truth.

"It's awesome", said Franco.

"It was wonderful, my heart started racing.I screamed for five to ten minutes", he said.

He said he was ecstatic when he found out about his good fortune.

Franco said he went to work that day, but he never showed up after learning he won.

"I'm just going to take off somewhere and, honestly, just take my time with it, think it over, talk to my family and make sure I spend it in the right way."

Milwaukee has the top spot for Wisconsin cities' lottery payouts - over $5 million. As a victor now, I don't plan on playing anymore. "It's truly a moment to celebrate across the state".
