Lottery officials say the second Powerball winner is a man in his 30s from Fountain Hills, Ariz.
The man bought one of two tickets in last week's record $577.5 million drawing, but he isn't stepping into the spotlight just yet.
The Arizona Lottery said Friday the winner opted to take the cash option of $192 million. He declined to take part in the news conference held Friday in Phoenix.
The ticket was sold at a convenience store in Fountain Hills, northeast of Phoenix.
Lottery officials wouldn't release the name or address of the winner.
The Arizona Lottery says the other winning ticket in last week's $588 million Powerball jackpot has been claimed.
But officials say the Arizona winner has declined to take part in Friday afternoon's scheduled news conference in Phoenix, and the winner's name wasn't going to be immediately released.
The ticket was sold at a store in Fountain Hills, northeast of Phoenix.
The winner has opted to take the cash option of $192 million.
A Missouri mechanic and his wife came forward on Nov. 30 to claim their half of the multistate Powerball prize.
