  • New Jersey man claims $315 million Powerball jackpot

Tayeb Souami, of Little Ferry, gestures as he was introduced as the $351.3 million Powerball victor, Friday, June 8, 2018, in Trenton, N.J.

The lone winning lottery ticket - matching the numbers 3, 6, 9, 17, 56 and the Powerball 25 drawn May 19 - was purchased at a ShopRite in Hackensack.

Tayeb Souami, of Little Ferry, gestures as he is introduced as the $351.3 million Powerball victor, Friday, June 8, 2018, in Trenton, N.J.

Tayeb Souami was introduced Friday during a news conference at lottery headquarters.

Souami told reporters that he was "very emotional" after walking into the press conference with a wide smile on his face.

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

Souami, who is a married father of four, came to the United States in 1996.

Souami, a father of two, said he made a decision to take the more than $183 million cash payout.

The identity of the victor, a New Jersey resident, won't be revealed until a 2 p.m. press conference at state Lottery headquarters in Trenton on Friday, officials said.

He found out he was the victor the next day.

But on the way to the carwash, he stepped into a 7-Eleven convenience store to check the tickets.

The first ticket scanned wasn't a victor, he said.

Souami said the clerk scanned the ticket and said, "Oh, my God!"

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

He realized he won and rushed home to tell his wife. He has two children. He'll pay off his recently refinanced home, pay for his daughter's college tuition and pay off his own college loans. His windfall is the fourth largest jackpot in the history of the New Jersey Lottery. In March, a Vernon man won a $533 million Mega Millions jackpot.
