PHOENIX, Dec. 7 (UPI) -- Arizona Lottery officials said a Phoenix-area man has claimed his share of the record-breaking $587.5 million Powerball drawing, but wishes to remain anonymous.

At a news conference in Phoenix Friday, lottery officials said the man -- who won $192 million in cash -- is in his 30s, is married and lives in Fountain Hills, an upscale suburb of Phoenix, KNXV-TV, Phoenix, reported. He moved to Arizona from Pennsylvania about a year ago.

The report said the man is likely to collect about $134 million after taxes but has indicated he plans to hold onto his job because he likes it.

Mark and Cindy Hall of Dearborn, Mo., claimed their share of the prize last week.
