MADISON, Wis. - While the big Powerball jackpot winners in New Jersey and Minnesota will be walking away with millions, four tickets sold in Wisconsin are worth thousands.
One ticket worth $40,000 and three others worth $10,000 were all sold in Waukesha County.
The Minnesota winner, Paul White, wasted no time in coming forward to claim his share of the jackpot, $149 million.
White is a 45-year-old divorced father of two teenagers. He joked at the news conference that there's too much work sitting on his desk for him to immediately quit his job as an engineer but he does plan to buy a car he's had his eye on for months.
"Imagine saying 'go pick out a car, go pick out a house, anything you want.' It's amazing," said White.
The two other jackpot winners who purchased their tickets in New Jersey have not come forward yet.
White also has a Wisconsin connection.
He mentioned during the news conference that he's originally from Rhinelander but moved to suburban Minneapolis for work.
The winning numbers are: 5, 25, 30, 58, 59 .... and Powerball number 32.
Winners have 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize.
