The Michigan gas station that sold last month's $337 million Powerball jackpot-winning ticket has collected its bonus.
Michigan Lottery Commissioner M. Scott Bowen presented the Odish family, the owners of the Sunoco gas station in Lapeer, with a $50,000 ceremonial check Wednesday afternoon.
The gas station is located about 45 miles northeast of Detroit.
Donald Lawson, a father of two from Lapeer, earlier claimed the Powerball prize from the Aug. 15 drawing. The lump-sum, $224.6 million payment worked out to $158.7 million, after taxes.
The jackpot was the third-largest in the game's history.
Twenty-five-year-old Joey Odish was one of the family members on hand for Wednesday's event. He tells MLive.com (http://bit.ly/NRXhoo ) the money would be distributed to 60 or 70 people in his extended family.
