ROSEVILLE, Minn. (KARE) -- A Ham Lake man says he "ran around his office screaming" after finding out he held one of three winning tickets from Wednesday night's $448 million lottery jackpot.
The Minnesota State Lottery has verified his ticket and presented him with a $149.4 million check.
Paul White, a father of two, is a project engineer. He told KARE 11 that he bought five lottery tickets Wednesday night.
"I remembered the Powerball last night so I went and bought five," said White. He bought the tickets at a Holiday gas station in Ham Lake.
White checked his tickets Thursday morning and realized he was one of the three winners of the $448 million jackpot. He says "it's a whirlwind" and that he's thinking of his family first.
"We're taking our items in order, lot of work to do, but it's very exciting," he said.
