Powerball Winner Still a Mystery

March 25, 2013

A truck stop manager in New Jersey said he believes he sold the winning $338 million Powerball ticket.

One lucky person in New Jersey matched all six numbers in Saturday night's Powerball jackpot drawing, and the manager at Love's Travel Stops & Country Store in Bordentown says he believes his store sold the ticket, ABC News reported.

Store manager Isaiah DeVries told ABC News on Monday that he received a call from an unidentified man who claimed he won the jackpot.

"Upon listening to his voice he did sound happy, kind of like a relief like he wouldn't have to work as hard and nice to hear that for someone," DeVries said.

DeVries said the ticket was likely sold to a Love's regular.

"I'm sure if I were to see his face I would recognize him. He claimed to be a usual here in the store," DeVries said.

Lottery officials will hold a press conference later Monday to officially announce where the winning ticket was sold.
