Although three people in New Jersey and Minnesota will split the big Powerball jackpot of $448 million, someone in Oklahoma is now $2 million richer.

The Oklahoma Lottery says someone bought a winning Powerball ticket Wednesday night at UN Food located at 9101 N. Council in Oklahoma City. The winner matched all five of the white balls, and purchased the Power Play option, which increased the prize to $2 million.

Winners have 180 days from the day of the drawing to claim their prize at the Oklahoma Lottery Headquarters, located at 3817 N. Santa Fe in Oklahoma City.

There were three winning tickets for the entire $448 million jackpot; two in New Jersey and one in Minnesota. A project engineer from a northwest Minneapolis suburb came forward Thursday afternoon to claim his share of the prize. Paul White says he learned he was holding a winning ticket after his "significant other" called him to say someone from Minnesota had won.

The winning numbers are 5, 25, 30, 58 and 59. The Powerball number is 32.
