The winner from February's $425 million dollar Powerball jackpot has finally come forward to claim his prize.

B. Raymond Buxton purchased his winning ticket at a Milpitas, California gas station.

The retiree says he's spent the last few weeks lining up legal and financial representation.

He opted for the lump sum payout of $242 million.

Buxton says he plans to travel, and open up a charitable foundation focusing on pediatric health, child hunger, and education.
