Edwin Castro’s life changed in an instant after he won the largest drawing prize in Powerball history, winning more than $2 billion. Although the draw took place in November 2022, his identity was not revealed until February 14, 2023; Since that date, the Hispanic, who decided to get everything in one go for a total of $997.6 billion, has bought up to three properties. How much did you pay for it?
Aware that everything has changed in his life and he has a sum of millions in his hands, he has no qualms about spending money and so his villas are equipped with everything: theaters, glass floors and much more. He even bought luxury cars but now we are focusing on his houses.
THE AMOUNT THAT EDWIN CASTRO SPENT ON THE THREE HOUSES HE PURCHASED
As soon as he received his million-dollar cash prize, Edwin Castro decided to purchase his first mansion in the Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles, California, worth $25.5 million. Neighbors in this exclusive area include Cristina Aguilera, Keanu Reeves, Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Cabello.
The Hispanic later purchased his second property in Altadena worth $4 million. It is a property built in 1953 with unobstructed views of the San Gabriel Mountains.
The third mansion he bought is in Bel Air and paid $47 million for it. Neighbors here include other celebrities such as Taylor Swift, Kylie Jenner, Justin Beiber, Jennifer Lawrence and others.
Taking into account the fact that he spent a lot of money on luxurious spaces, Edwin Castro spent a total of 76.5 million on the three properties (two villas and a house) in less than a year.
What do experts say about your spending?
Financial experts have analyzed the expenses incurred by Hispanics and agree that they are not responsible for their wealth; What’s more, instead of getting advice, you waste your money and publicize your purchase of luxury items.
The worst thing is that Edwin Castro still cannot fully enjoy the Powerball prize after the complaint from José Rivera, who claims to be the real winner of the lottery. The case will be heard on November 8th.
