New Jersey resident who won $315 million Powerball jackpot comes forward

  • Tayeb Souami of Little Ferry gestures as he is introduced as the $351.3 million Powerball winner Friday

"I like the number", he said he thought to himself before buying two tickets with the cash he was refunded from the orange juice.

The father of two made a decision to take the $183 million cash payout and remain in his New Jersey hometown. When he stopped at a red light, he went into a 7 Eleven store to check the tickets.

The latest Powerball drawing offers another hefty jackpot for anyone fortunate to hold a lottery ticket with the right numbers. "The second ticket was good but the machine said it must be seen by the retailer", he said.

Souami, a father of two who immigrated from an undisclosed country in Africa in 1996, had purchased the sole winning ticket.

"When I went inside, I scanned the first ticket and it wasn't the victor".

Kathleen Wynne won her seat, but the Liberals lost official party status
Ontario's new premier has previously voiced support for Donald Trump, but has dismissed direct comparisons to the USA president. People are exhausted and resources are thin following the campaign, he said, and the party would do better to bide its time.

"What do you mean by, 'Oh my God?'" he asked her.

He said he will talk to a financial advisor about what to do with the money, but added that one of the first things he will do is take care of his family, especially when it comes to the education of his two children. One lucky player had just joined the group prior to the big win.

"I love orange juice now", he said.

The ticket is the third most valuable Powerball ticket sold in New Jersey.

Tuesday's Mega Millions jackpot will be worth $144 million ($85 million cash).
