(Newser) – An up-until-now unidentified New Jersey man who was one of three to win this month's $411 million Powerball jackpot has finally been revealed. Mario Scarnici, of Monmouth Junction, will receive about $62 million after taxes, Central Jersey reports. The grocery store where he bought his ticket—and always bought his tickets—will also score $30,000 for selling the winner; it plans on donating the money to charity, reports the Star-Ledger. The other two-thirds of the jackpot were won by a group of 16 other New Jerseyans and a Minnesota dad. (Read more Powerball stories.)
