America’s first lottery billionaire Edwin Castro appears to have struck lucky again after a date with an Instagram model who describes herself as a poet, writer, critic, and screenwriter.

The 31-year-old, who scooped $997 million after tax in a 2022 Powerball draw, locked lips with 24-year-old Payten Vincent outside LA celebrity hotpot Nobu on Sunday morning after the pair enjoyed an evening there together the previous night.

Castro deleted his social media accounts in the aftermath of his record-breaking lottery scoop, but his new squeeze already has 125,000 followers on her Instagram account where she has posted selfies of herself partying with celebrities including rapper Flavor Flav, and DJs Cedric Gervais and Diplo.

The young socialite was carrying a Christian Dior saddle bag and wearing a short black dress and white heels as she left Malibu’s high tone sushi restaurant on Saturday night.

She had changed into baggy pants and a black crop-top when she returned with her new beau in his $500,000 Porsche the next morning, while he was dressed down in a loose-fitting T-shirt and black cargo pants.

Castro has only been pictured on a handful of dates since he scooped the $2 billion pre-tax jackpot in November 2022 though he clearly has a taste for seafood after taking a mystery blonde to West Hollywood’s Sushi Park in February.

His new date’s LinkedIn page reveals her to be a graduate of Falmouth High School on Cape Cod in Massachusetts where her interests included Alpine Ski Racing.

She has worked as a freelance model and as a ‘food critic for all types of cuisines, focusing on fine dining and celiac-friendly restaurants’.

Her work as a screenwriter remains a mystery, but her Instagram page links to a blog page where she has published some of her poetry under the title ‘Reckless Intelligence’.

‘The depressing life of a restless girl,’ she writes. ‘The beautiful purposeless will of the world.

‘Exasperated Nihilist, explorative philosopher, the lessons you can’t learn anywhere else, than in the wake of the speedboat.’

It is not known whether Castro has spent any of his winnings on a speedboat, but he has splashed out on a $47 million mansion in Bel Air, a $25million house in Hollywood Hills and a $4 million Japanese-inspired home in Altadena for his mom and dad near the suburb where he grew up.

Vincent, meanwhile, spent more than 18 months volunteering as a food preparer and server at the Portland Maine Homeless Shelter as a teenager.

These days she spends more time at Hollywood spots including Tao nightclub, Poppy, and Nightingale Plaza, along with VIP trips to Coachella in California and Art Basel in Miami.

Her best loved possession appears to be a young albino hedgehog, but the creature does not seem to have accompanied her on globetrotting trips to Puerto Rico, France and South America.

‘I love this country with all of my heart and honestly ache to live here,’ she wrote after a 2022 trip to Belize.

‘The land, the culture, the people, the feeling of magic, the food, the weather, the waves, and the fruit.

‘Not many people know this a dream of mine is to have a van and simply drive. Cook my own food, maybe buy local eggs and make breakfast for the rest of campsite. 

‘Roll my own tobacco and give kombucha to villagers. Go on treks over mountains, watch sunsets, rest by the beach for days and never know what day it is (unless there’s an Open mic near by).’
