DES MOINES, IA (AP) — At least three people in two states have beaten astronomical odds to become the nation’s latest Powerball millionaires.

Sue Dooley, senior drawing manager production coordinator for the Multi-State Lottery Association, said late Wednesday night that three tickets matched the winning numbers and will split the lottery’s latest massive jackpot: $448 million.

The winning numbers drawn Wednesday night were: 05, 25, 30, 58, 59 and Powerball 32.

The (Newark, NJ) Star-Ledger reported early Thursday that a spokeswoman for the New Jersey Lottery said that one of the multimillion-dollar tickets was purchased at a supermarket in South Brunswick, NJ, and the other ticket was sold in Little Egg Harbor, N..

Information on the Minnesota ticket was not available early Thursday.
