Powerball Mystery: $338M Winner Hasn't Claimed Prize

The winner has yet to come forward in the $338.3 million powerball drawing, executive director of the New Jersey lottery Carole Hedinger told reporters during a press conference on Monday. "We are waiting for the winner, or winners, to contact us," Hedinger told reporters at a press conference at lottery headquarters in Lawrenceville, N.J. "Whoever they are should sign the back of that ticket immediately and keep it in a safe place."The winning ticket was sold at Eagle Liquor in Passaic, New Jersey. The ticket's lump sum cash value is approximately $221 million and $151 million after state and federal taxes. Hedinger said it is not uncommon for a winner to take their time coming forward and expects someone to come forward in the near future. The $338 million jackpot is the fourth largest in Powerball history and the lump sum cash payout ranks third in state history.
