New Jersey man wins $315M Powerball jackpot, quits job

A lottery official confirmed the victor is from northern New Jersey but didn't say where.

The next day, Souami found out he'd won in a dramatic fashion.

"I love orange juice now", he said, laughing.

But on the way to the carwash, he stepped into a 7-Eleven convenience store to check the tickets. The second ticket was "good", but on the scanner read instructions to see the cashier.

He said he will talk to a financial advisor about what to do with the money, but added that one of the first things he will do is take care of his family, especially when it comes to the education of his two children.

Suicide rates inched up in almost every USA state from 1999 through 2016, according to a government report released Thursday. Clinical Psychologist Paula Bloom talked with 11Alive to help viewers gain a better understanding of mental health issues.

The first ticket scanned wasn't a victor, he said. "I chose to get our tickets from there that day, and I'm glad I did". I think your machine is not working'. "And she kept saying, 'Oh, my God".

"My heart, it was just beating beating, beating", he told reporters.

Souami has made a decision to take the cash payout, which is $183.2 million dollars before taxes.

Souami, who is originally from Africa, is an accountant for a food importing company and wanted to make sure the more than 200 people he works with would be OK, he said.

"When he told me we won, I had to see for myself", said Joe. He'll pay off his recently refinanced home, pay for his daughter's college tuition and pay off his own college loans.
