PASSAIC, N.J. (AP) - A 44-year-old New Jersey man is the winner of a $338 million Powerball jackpot.

Several media outlets were at Passaic 's Eagle Liquors store, where the ticket was sold, late Monday afternoon when Pedro Quezada entered. They report that the store owner ran Quezada's ticket through the lottery machine to validate that it was a winner.

The New Jersey Lottery confirmed that the winning ticket was validated at the store at 4:30 p.m. Monday, but officials said they didn't yet know the winner's name.

The numbers drawn Saturday were 17, 29, 31, 52, 53 and Powerball 31. A lump sum payout would be $221 million, or about $152 million after taxes.

Quezada told reporters in Spanish that he was "very happy" and that his first priority will be helping his family.
