DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — At least three people in two states will split the $448 million Powerball jackpot.
Lottery officials say two winning tickets were sold in New Jersey and one was sold in Minnesota.
Minnesota lottery officials say that state’s winning Powerball jackpot ticket was sold in Anoka County.
New Jersey lottery officials say one of the winning tickets in that state was purchased at a Super Stop & Shop store in South Brunswick. The other one was bought at an Acme Markets store in Little Egg Harbor.
Phil Weber, the director of the Acme store, says he’s just happy that, in his words, “someone’s life is changing for the positive.”
No winners have come forward yet.
The winning numbers drawn Wednesday night were 05, 25, 30, 58, 59 and Powerball 32.
