The Powerball winnings by state on August 7 are three people from Minnesota and New Jersey.

Sue Dooley, senior drawing manager production coordinator for the Multi-State Lottery Association, said late Wednesday night that three tickets matched all six numbers and would split the $448 million Powerball jackpot.

“We had three grand prize winners,” Dooley said. “One was in Minnesota and two were in New Jersey.”

Mmillions of others won anywhere from a couple dollars to hundreds of thousands.

Apart from the Powerball jackpot winners, 4,051,006 additional players won prizes totaling more than $66.9 Million, according to Powerball.

The estimated jackpot will be reset to $40 million. 

The winning numbers drawn Wednesday night were: 05, 25, 30, 58, 59 and Powerball 32.

In Minnesota, the winners will face a 7.25 percent state tax, while New Jersey’s state tax is 3 percent.
