David Johnson, who won the December 26, 2018 drawing with the numbers 5-25-38-52-67, and Powerball 24, made a decision to take his winnings in a lump sum payment, which after taxes and withholdings, nets out to $114 million.
Needless to say, it was Johnson's luck, and he soon realized he was the victor of the $298 million Powerball jackpot.
He is 56-year-old Brooklyn truck driver David Johnson who left Jamaica when he was 16-years-old.
New Yorkers won the last three consecutive Powerball jackpots in 2018. "I got a call that the winning ticket was sold at the store where I buy my tickets", the Jamiacan immigrant explained.
"I got right back in my auto, turned my music up, and zoomed on home", Johnson said.
"I can't even eat. I start and can't finish my food", Johnson said.

During his usual trip to his usual gas station for a fill up, he spent $5 on lotto - including a quick-pick Powerball ticket. "I turned to myself I said, 'Aw that's not me man, that's not my luck'".
The first purchase he said he'll make is a red Porsche, Pix11 reported. It says it provides about 13% of total state education aid to local school districts.
