$448 Million Dollar Powerball Jackpot Winners

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

A 45-year-old Minneapolis resident, Paul White, quickly surfaced with one of the winning tickets on Thursday. Two other winning tickets were sold in South Brunswick, NJ, however those winners have yet to come forward.

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

Each winning ticket was worth $86 million before taxes, or $58.3 million after taxes if taken in a lump sum. They are worth $149.4 million over 30 years if the winners choose the annuity option.

 


 

With the Powerball amount up to 425 million dollars and the winner yet to be announced, it could be said some Missoulians are already benefiting from the large pot produced.

Many convenient stores and gas stations in the area report the large amount of money has brought in extra sales.

This amount is the fourth biggest for the US lottery and store managers said even though they are not getting the big pot , they are greatly benefiting from hopeful customers stacking up on tickets.

"A lot of times I think they come in just for the Powerball but sometimes they might see something like their favorite candy or maybe they are hungry," Conoco Cashier, Alex Copp said.

Powerball officials said with the estimated earnings of 425 million dollars, the winner will have a cash value of 225 million.
