Winning ticket for $338M Powerball sold in NJ

LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. (AP) — The lottery fantasies of mansions, luxury boats and unlimited travel are over for most people. But for the owner — or owners — of the lone winning ticket sold in New Jersey for Powerball’s $338.3 million drawing, they’re just beginning.

New Jersey lottery officials announced today the ticket was sold at Eagle Liquor in Passaic, a city of 70,000 about 15 miles northwest of New York City.

But officials have yet to hear from the person or persons who bought the ticket.

State lottery director Carole Hedinger said it’s not usual for big winners to wait a few days or longer to claim the prize while they seek professional advice.

Lottery officials said it was the fourth-largest jackpot in Powerball history. The numbers drawn Saturday were 17, 29, 31, 52, 53 and Powerball 31. A lump sum payout would be $221 million.

Heard it was a truck driver. Good for him, but if he's like many other winners, this will be a curse.
