AZ Powerball jackpot winner's name released

Arizona Lottery officials have released the name of the man who claimed half of the record Powerball jackpot.

The Lottery says Matthew Good took the one-time payout of $192 million from the Nov. 28 drawing.

Good is in his 30s and from the wealthy Phoenix suburb of Fountain Hills, where the ticket was sold.

He bought $10 worth and kept the winning slip in the visor of his car overnight before realizing he was a multimillionaire.

After Good and his wife learned of their good fortune, he pulled together a team of financial advisers and decided to take his share this month to avoid potentially higher taxes in 2013.

The name was released in response to a public records request.

The other winning ticket was sold in Dearborn, Mo.
