PASSAIC, N.J. — No one has come forward yet in New Jersey to claim the winning Powerball ticket worth $338.3 million.
The owner of the liquor store where the ticket was sold says a couple of people have told the store they have the winner. But Sunil Sethi of Eagle Liquors in Passaic, 15 miles northwest of New York City, says nothing has been confirmed.
New Jersey lottery officials confirmed today the ticket was sold at Eagle Liquors but said they have not heard from the winner. A lump sum payout would be worth $221 million.
Liquor store employee Pravin Mankodia sold the ticket. He says “it feels awesome.”
The store will get $10,000. The owner says he’ll probably use some of the money to fix up the store and also share some with employees.
