Puerto Rico Powerball Winner Claims Prize, Chooses To Stay Anonymous

Puerto Rico’s Powerball winner presented one of three winning tickets to last week’s $564 million jackpot, island lottery officials said on Thursday.

But the lucky island resident, who will share the prize with the Texas and North Carolina winners, has chosen to remain anonymous.

The lucky person, who bought the ticket at a Shell station in Ponce, Puerto Rico, is not a resident of that southern city, according to Puerto Rico Lottery officials.

The winner has 60 days to decide if he or she wants a lump sum of $101 million or 30 payments over 30 years.

“For those who doubted that this prize could be won on the island, this is proof that the possibilities are real,” said the Assistant Secretary to the Puerto Rico lottery.

Puerto Rico Powerball Rules

Powerball is played in the same way in Puerto Rico as in other jurisdictions but there are a few specific rules that may be different to other locations:

  • You must be at least 18 years of age to play.
  • You can enter up to 26 consecutive draws in advance.
  • Ticket sales close at 10:59pm Atlantic Time (21:59 ET).
  • Lottery winnings in Puerto Rico are exempt from income tax.

See the How to Play page for more information.

If you win a prize of up to $800, you can claim your money from any licensed lottery retailer. For an award between $800 and $25,000, you will need to visit one of Puerto Rico’s regional claim centers, while you must collect a prize of $25,000 or more from the headquarters in Hato Rey, San Juan. The address of the headquarters is as follows:

Angel Ramos Foundation Building Suite 110
383 Roosevelt Avenue
Hato Rey
San Juan, Puerto Rico 00918-2143

If you win a Powerball prize in Puerto Rico, you have 180 days from the date of the draw to come forward and claim your money. If you win the jackpot and wish to take the cash option you must make your claim within 60 days, otherwise you will have to accept it as an annuity in 30 yearly payments.

You are allowed to stay anonymous if you win a Powerball prize in Puerto Rico. A law protecting the identity of lottery winners in the territory was established in 1989, and players who have pocketed big prizes have taken advantage of this rule to keep their names out of the public eye.

The Puerto Rican Lottery has raised more than $5 billion for the territory’s economy since 1990. Once the prize money has been paid out, operational costs have been covered and retailers have received any commission they are due, the proceeds are given to a Lottery Fund and allocated to different social programs from there. Among the beneficiaries are the Scholarship Fund of the University of Puerto Rico, elderly people, various health and sports programs and individual municipalities.В

Puerto Rico only joined Powerball in September 2014, becoming the first Spanish-speaking jurisdiction to be a part of the Multi-State Lottery Association. The territory history again less than five months later when the jackpot was won outside the mainland U.S. for the first time, on February 11 th 2015. The top prize was worth $564 million – one of the biggest jackpots ever – and the Puerto Rican winner was one of three in the draw. The lucky ticket holder decided to stay anonymous.

Puerto Rico snapped up its second Powerball jackpot just a couple of months later, when someone from the territory matched the full winning line to bank $50 million. The winner again decided not to go public.
