Pedro Quezada appeared at New Jersey lottery headquarters to officially claim the $338 million Powerball prize, his wife and brothers also in the room. The former shop owner from a working-class suburb of New York City has been in the U.S. for 26 years.

LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. – The New Jersey man who won the $338 million Powerball lottery says he felt "pure joy" at winning the huge jackpot, but he has no idea yet what he will do with the money — except maybe buy a car, to cut down on mileage on his feet.

One winning Powerball ticket was sold in New Jersey. The numbers drawn were 17, 29, 31, 52, 53 and Powerball 31. A single ticket matched all six numbers in Saturday night's drawing for the $338.3 million Powerball jackpot
