The $448 million Powerball jackpot will be split by three winners, two of which were in New Jersey and one in Minnesota, according to lottery officials.

The winning numbers in Wednesday's drawing were 58-5-25-59-30 and powerball 32.

"Now the fun starts. Everybody will look at their tickets and see if it's them," Sue Dooley with the Multi-state Lottery Association said.

Winning tickets in New Jersey were sold at the Super Stop 'n Shop in South Brunswick, N.J., and Acme Markets in Little Egg Harbor, N.J. It is unclear where the winning ticket in Minnesota was sold.

Three tickets winning Match 5 were sold, in Colorado, Oklahoma and Texas, according to the Powerball website.

In total there were 4,051,009 winners in Wednesday's drawing, according to the Powerball website. Non-Jackpot winning totaled $66,895,831.

The jackpot earlier stood at $425 million, but grew and was announced at the higher number before the drawing.

Split that three ways, the person or people holding each of Wednesday's tickets could walk away with nearly $150 million each, before taxes.

Haha!  That's probably the most I've ever won from the lottery too.
