BORDENTOWN, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Workers at a store in Burlington County, New Jersey, were thrust into a big spotlight late Sunday, as they just heard from a man who told them he is holding the winning ticket for the $338.3 million Powerball drawing.

As CBS 2’s Dave Carlin reported, Lottery officials have not yet officially confirmed where the winning ticket was sold. They planned to reveal that on Monday.

But CBS 2 was told by a clerk at Love’s Travel Stop, at 2008 U.S. 206 in Bordentown, N.J., that it was a truck driver who walked in and bought the ticket, before getting back in his big rig and heading off to Delaware.

Carlin talked with a clerk at the store in Bordentown, which is located in Burlington County had has a population of less than 4,000.

“He sounded very excited. It feels good because, you know, since a person won from our store, and it definitely did change their life, and everything else, you know? Now he’s probably going to retire,” she said.

Lottery officials said the $338.3 million jackpot was the fourth largest in Powerball history.
