Tayeb Souami was introduced Friday during a news conference at lottery headquarters.

According to the 55-year-old account, he stopped at a 7-Eleven to check his tickets when he discovered he won.

"This is big. I am very emotional right now".

It wasn't known Thursday if the victor had made a decision to claim the lump sum or take their winnings over time.

Lottery officials said Souami waited a day before he checked the numbers at another location that happened to be a lottery retailer.

Lottery officials say the New Jersey resident holds the lone winning ticket for the May 19 drawing. When the clerk scanned the ticket, she said, "Oh, my God!"

Souami, who is originally from Africa, says he came to America in June of 1996.

He realized he won and rushed home to tell his wife.

He said he will talk to a financial advisor about what to do with the money, but added that one of the first things he will do is take care of his family, especially when it comes to the education of his two children.

The owners of the ShopRite received a $30,000 check for selling the winning ticket.

The ticket is the third most valuable Powerball ticket sold in New Jersey.

In April, a New Jersey man claimed a $533 million Mega Millions jackpot.
