Tayeb Souami, of Little Ferry, gestures as he is introduced as the $351.3 million Powerball victor, Friday, June 8, 2018, in Trenton, N.J.
A man from Little Ferry, New Jersey has claimed the $315 million Powerball jackpot.
The victor will be revealed to the public when he or she meets the media on Friday afternoon at lottery headquarters in Lawrenceville.
"That's when I realized we missed the big one by one number", he said, while claiming the prize at Lottery headquarters with two members of the group, Gary Sullivan and Joe Moore Jr.
Souami, a father of two who immigrated from an undisclosed country in Africa in 1996, had purchased the sole winning ticket.
It's unknown if the Souami had made a decision to claim the lump sum or take their winnings over time.Читайте также: Cleveland Cavs fan makes sign thanking LeBron James for 4 straight Finals
"I was thinking about the fact that the Royal Farms store had sold two Cash4Life winning tickets a while back", the retiree told Lottery officials.
The next day, Souami found out he'd won in a dramatic fashion.
But on the way to the carwash, he stepped into a 7-Eleven convenience store to check the tickets.
"I have to take care of them", Souami said.
When Earl checked the tickets from the May 2 drawing at a Lottery retailer, he "saw a lot of zeros!"
"The clerk kept saying, "Oh my God. Oh, my God.' It's like when you see a "Tom and Jerry" cartoon: The heart goes boom boom boom boom".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
