Victor of $315.3M Powerball jackpot comes forward in New Jersey

New Jersey man claims $315 million Powerball jackpot

The first ticket scanned wasn't a victor, he said. "I like the number", he said before buying the tickets.

"North Dakota Powerball players have had some pretty good luck in 2018", said Randy Miller, director of the North Dakota Lottery, in the press release.

"The clerk kept saying, "Oh my God".

It took him two hours to get home because his hands were shaking.

Souami told reporters that he was "very emotional" after walking into the press conference with a wide smile on his face.

Souami, who is originally from Africa, says he came to America in June of 1996.

"I have to take care of them", he said. The married father of four made a decision to take the money in a lump sum, so he'll get slightly more than $183 million after taxes. "It's not so easy to quit just like that".

Lottery officials say the New Jersey resident holds the lone winning ticket for the May 19 drawing.

This marks the second major lottery win in New Jersey this year.

He refinanced his house in order to send his 17-year-old daughter to college, he said, and had received the check just a week before winning.

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

The bottle of orange juice cost $5 at ShopRite, but Tayeb Souami's wife had found the same brand on sale for $2.50 elsewhere.
