Three Connecticut men have come forward to claim the $254 million jackpot from the Nov. 2, 2011 Powerball drawing.
Tim Davidson, Brandon Lacoff and Gregg Skidmore are co-workers who come from the Greenwich, CT area. Their lucky $1 quick pick ticket was purchased at a gas station in Stamford. The three took their winnings in a single lump sum cash payment of nearly $104 million. The jackpot was the 12th largest in Powerball history. They plan to give a significant portion of the money to charity.
Powerball is played in 42 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The jackpot currently sits at $31 million for the next drawing on Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2011.
