In New Jersey, a waiting game - to see who will come forward with two of three winning Powerball tickets bought in the Garden State.
New Jersey Lottery Executive Director Carole Hedingway.
SOUNDBITE: New Jersey Lottery Executive Director Carole Hedingway, saying:
"This is the 86 million dollar prize that we are waiting to give away twice and I hope it is very soon."
One lucky player picked the right numbers - at a Stop and Shop in South Brunswick - and another one picked them at an Acme Market in Little Egg Harbor.
Both will share a 448 Million Dollar jackpot - with the third winner - Paul White - a project engineer from Minnesota.
The only winner to come forward so far, White is already making plans about how to spend his winnings.
(SOUNDBITE) Paul White, Powerball winner, saying:
"I'm not going to be one of those people that says I'm going to keep working, because I'm not working for anyone else anymore. Not going to happen."
After taxes, White will take home about $58 million dollars - enough to buy the new car he's been eyeing.
