Final Powerball Winner is a New Jersey Man
A New Jersey man has finally claimed his third of that $448 million Powerball jackpot. We don’t know much about him, not even how old he is.
According to CentralJersey.com, Mario Scarnici and his two adult sons came to get the money. Mario is from Monmouth Junction and he bought the winning ticket at the Super Stop & Shop supermarket in South Brunswick Township.
Mario chose the cash option and will get about $62 million after taxes.
The store received a $30,000 bonus commission for selling the ticket, Jose Perez, a night manager at the Stop & Shop, said the store will give that money to charity.
So far no comment from Mario, and the lottery press release said we may not get more info about him. Very mysterious, or am I just starting T-R-O-U-B-L-E!. Mario probably doesn't want to be hounded by the press and needy relatives!
Two of the three winning tickets in the August 7 drawing were sold in New Jersey. The third was sold in Minnesota.
16 Ocean County maintenance workers had one of the winners, they claimed their money and will each get about $3.8 million after taxes.
Paul White, an engineer from Ham Lake, Minnesota, was the other winner.
