Edwin Castro, the winner of November’s record-high $2.04 billion Powerball jackpot, obviously has a lot to celebrate … but wait until you see the home he purchased with just a fraction of his winnings.

According to The Los Angeles Times, the Powerball winner-turned-instant billionaire just dropped more than $25 million of his winnings on a Hollywood Hills mansion.

The three-story home has five bedrooms and six bathrooms, as well as a game room, wine cellar and movie theater.

He declined an invitation from state officials to speak to reporters the day the California Lottery announced his winnings. Instead, he sent a written statement that said he was “shocked and ecstatic” to have won the lottery. State officials said Castro chose the lump sum of $997.6 million.

However, a man named Jose Rivera claimed last month that the record-setting jackpot ticket was stolen from him. He’s now attempting to sue Castro, according to the report.
