Tayeb Souami, of Little Ferry, gestures as he is introduced as the $351.3 million Powerball victor, Friday, June 8, 2018, in Trenton, N.J.
There was no victor of the $105 million Powerball jackpot for the drawing held on Saturday, June 9.
But the ticket holder's name won't be revealed until a news conference Friday.
He added it took him more than a month to come forward as he was working to make arrangements to quit his job as an accountant for a food importing company.
"North Dakota Powerball players have had some pretty good luck in 2018", said Randy Miller, director of the North Dakota Lottery, in a statement.
Souami, originally from Africa, moved to the United States in 1996. He opted for a lump sum payment of $183 million before taxes.
Fans punch on in farcical Fury comeback fight
Tyson Fury's comeback fight may not have lived up to expectations, but the heavyweight's ring walk was certainly worth the wait. In the co-feature, Jermell Charlo will face Austin Trout for the WBC Super Welterweight World Championship.
So on May 19, Souami dutifully trudged back to the store in Hackensack, New Jersey, - OJ and receipt in hand.
He found out he was the victor the next day. "I scanned the ticket on my phone and then rebooted my phone before checking again". "And she kept saying, "Oh, my God".
Souami said he was so nervous after realizing he won that he had trouble driving home. He liked the number and was feeling lucky, so he purchased two tickets using the money he got from the returned orange juice and mostly forgot about the lottery for the rest of the day.
The first things he plans to do with winnings are pay to pay off his college loans, pay for his daughter to go to college next year and pay off his home, which he had just refinanced and received the check for last week.
A New Jersey man came forward as the victor of the $315.3 million Powerball jackpot. The $533 million haul won by Vernon resident Richard Wahl in April is the highest jackpot payout in recorded in New Jersey.
