Thursday August 8,2013 : THREE POWERBALL MULTI-MILLIONAIRES
$448 million split three ways is still an awful lot of money
This week's massive $448 million Powerball lottery jackpot in the United States will be split three ways to lucky ticket holders, the Associated Press news agency reports.
Two of the winners are located in New Jersey and the third is in Minnesota, official sources have revealed.
Sue Dooley, senior drawing manager and production coordinator for the Multi-State Lottery Association, said 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."
The numbers drawn Wednesday night were: 05, 25, 30, 58, 59 and Powerball 32.
The massive jackpot had players in a ticket-buying frenzy, further confirming Powerball players often don't get into the game until the jackpot offers big bucks.
