Well, there are a select few people that woke up today (Thursday, January 6) as millionaires. Two separate tickets hit all the winning numbers in the $630 million Powerball jackpot on Wednesday night.
Lottery officials say one ticket was sold in Wisconsin; the other at a 7-Eleven in Sacramento, California. The jackpot – which was officially $632.6 million — was the seventh-largest prize in the game’s history.
The two winners will split the jackpot (coming out to about $316 million each give or take a whole bunch of taxes).
Plus, among the 14 $1 million tickets sold, there was one lucky winner right here in New Jersey. The ticket was sold at Robin’s Convenience Store Deli & Grill in Lakewood.
