Some of the apparent winners of last week's Powerball lottery jackpot say they'll come forward soon. For now, as Zain Asher tells us, the 16 co-workers are staying incognito. "The mystery is just who are these 16 Ocean County workers who claim to have won one-third of the $448-million Powerball prize," says CNN's Zain Asher. He didn't want his identity known yet. "It hasn't really sunken in yet but it feels really good," says Lou Hahn, a co-worker. This 56-year-old New Jersey garage attendant says he currently makes a little less than $40,000 a year. Now, he plans to retire early, after he claims he and 15 other co-workers won last Wednesday night's Powerball jackpot. "I thought someone was playing a joke again," he says. He says they're not ready to be publicly identified, and, even though the attention has been overwhelming... "They're talking about people knocking on their brothers' doors, mothers' doors, trying to find out who they are," says Hahn. "We're just trying to keep it normal, stay relatively calm, just keeping it real as say, says the unidentified winner. "I'm very happy for everybody," says Hahn. "They're county employees. At least one or two people lost their house during the storm." Roughly 60 workers are in the Ocean County Vehicle Maintenance Department here in Tom' River, but only 16 decided to pool their money to buy 70 Powerball tickets. "Probably gonna get approximately $3.5-million each," says the winner. So why keep working? "I think they could quit if they wanted to," says Hahn. The unidentified winner and his co-workers only play Powerball whenever the jackpot swells to a huge amount, as it did last Wednesday, to a whopping $448-million. They'll have to split that money with an electrical engineer from Minnesota and another unidentified winner who also bought a ticket n New Jersey. "It's a life-changer," says the winner. "and even though these 16 Ocean County workers claim to have won, New Jersey Lottery officials say they can't confirm lottery winners in New Jersey because no one has come forward to validate their prize."
