A Florida couple who purchased one of the three winning Powerball tickets for January's historic jackpot came forward to claim their prize at a press conference today.
The winners, identified as married couple David Kaltschmidt and Maureen Smith, opted to take their winnings in one lump sum of $328 million before taxes. Smith said that she picked the winning numbers and they were the same set of numbers she has been playing "for years," though she doesn't play regularly. They both expressed concern about the downsides of winning, with Smith saying it's "scary" and that she's been "dreading" the public acceptance today. They took many precautions ahead of claiming the ticket, not even telling their close relatives until this week even though they realized they won the lottery the morning after the winning numbers were announced.


When it comes to spending the money, Kaltschmidt plans to retire after working as a manufacturing engineer for 34 years. The winners in Tennessee, John and Lisa Robinson, came forward shortly after the winning numbers were drawn in January.

He also wants to get a new truck since he says his current car is "falling apart." Smith joked that she'd like a massage. FLORIDA LOTTO drawings are broadcast on 17 carrier stations throughout the state, including WPLG (ABC) and WSCV (Telemundo) in Miami.


Winning numbers are available on the Lottery website, at retailers statewide and by phone at (850) 921-PLAY.
