Lottery officials said the winning numbers came from a Quick Pick ticket, which means they were randomly generated by a computer in the Stop & Shop store.

Manager Larry DiAntonio was surprised that his store was responsible for the lucky ticket.

"It's exciting, it feels good that the store sold the winning ticket," he told CBS New York.

& # 39; I hope it's someone in Staten Island. I live in Staten Island, with luck it's someone I know. "

New York law requires that lottery winners apply to claim their money.

One person in Florida won a secondary prize of $ 2 million, while another person won a prize of $ 1 million in Georgia.

It was the first time that the Powerball jackpot has been affected in more than seven weeks.

The lucky winner of Staten Island will receive a payment of $ 147 million before taxes.

The lottery prize next Wednesday will restart at $ 40 million.
