The two Powerball jackpot winners in New Jersey haven’t yet come forward, and a lottery official said they have one year to come forward.
“We’re waiting to give [it] away,” said Carole Hedinger, executive director of the New Jersey Lottery, at the Super Stop n Shop where one of the winning tickets was sold.
The other winning ticket sold in New Jersey was at an Acme story in Little Egg Harbor.
The winners each get $86 million before taxes or $64 million after taxes, said Hedinger. If taken through annual payments, the winnings would be around $150 million overall.
The third jackpot winner, of Minnesota, came forward earlier in the day to claim his winnings.
The Super Stop n Shop in South Brunswick received $30,000 for selling the winning ticket.
A store official said that they would be giving back some of the money to the community through a donation.
Hedinger said that the two winning tickets sold in the state prove people should buy tickets there.
“I think it’s a good time for everybody to come to New Jersey and buy a lottery ticket,” she said.
A winner can go to any lottery retailer to claim their winnings with a winning ticket.
The winning numbers were: 58-5-25-59-30 and powerball 32.
