Collection Day! Ocean County Lottery Winners Pick Up $86 Million Check

New Jersey Lottery

The group of Ocean County workers who had one of three winning tickets from last week’s $448 million Powerball jackpot made a happy trip to lottery headquarters in Trenton Monday to claim their really big check. Really big, as in $86 million!

The group will speak at a press conference today in Toms River where they all worked for the Ocean County Department of Vehicle Services.  Whether any of them will remain as county workers is something about which people seem most curious.

The nine women and seven men are being jokingly referred to as the “Ocean’s 16″, a play on words on the popular Ocean’s 11 movie series.  But there’s no joke about the amount of money the group is collecting: an after tax windfall of $3.8 million each!

The winning ticket was sold at the Little Egg Harbor Township Acme Market.

A New Jersey Lottery spokesman said that at least six of the winners had suffered some damage to their homes during Hurricane Sandy.
