First on Monday, Mario Scarnici, of Monmouth Junction, New Jersey, claimed the remaining winning New Jersey ticket from the $448 million Powerball draw back on August 7. There were three winners that night. Two were from New Jersey. Mario told news that he bought his ticket at the Super Stop and Shop store. “I go in the store and buy a newspaper and lottery tickets”. He intends to share much of his winnings with his two sons. He will take home $62 million in cash.
