Powerball winners can choose between annual payments over 29 years or a lump sum of $33 million before taxes.
According to Boston.com, Adam Muise, the storeowner where the winning ticket was sold, said the main claiming to be the winner was back at the store today, Dec. 13.
LeBlanc and DeLeon aren’t the only winners here.
