New Jersey man claims $315-million Powerball jackpot

New Jersey man claims $315-million Powerball jackpot”

He has two children.

"I love orange juice now", he said at a press conference.

Souami said the clerk scanned the ticket and said, "Oh, my God!"

"I have to take care of them", Souami said. "I think your machine isn't working".

The identity of the victor, a New Jersey resident, won't be revealed until a 2 p.m. press conference at state Lottery headquarters in Trenton on Friday, officials said. "I made a decision to get our tickets from there that day, and I'm glad I did". "And she kept saying, 'Oh, my God".

Although Souami is an accountant, he didn't want to see the number just yet, he said.

Originally from Africa, Souami came to the United States in 1996. The winning numbers were 3, 6, 9, 17, 56 and the Powerball 25, according to NewJersey.com.

The player in Idaho also played the Power Play option which increased their winnings to $2 million.

The first things he plans to do with winnings are pay to pay off his college loans, pay for his daughter to go to college next year and pay off his home, which he had just refinanced and received the check for last week.

"When he told me we won, I had to see for myself", said Joe. His windfall is the fourth largest jackpot in the history of the New Jersey Lottery.

Tuesday's Mega Millions jackpot will be worth $144 million ($85 million cash).

It's unknown if the Souami had chose to claim the lump sum or take their winnings over time.
