William Thomas Cain/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The Powerball jackpot has announced 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 to $448 million and was announced at the higher number before the drawing.  Split three ways, the person or people holding each of the tickets could walk away with nearly $150 million each, before taxes.

The estimated jackpot now stands at $40,000,000 for the next drawing, on Saturday.  It is played in 43 states as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
