Minnesota to introduce Powerball winner on Thursday

MINNEAPOLIS (Reuters) - The Minnesota State Lottery said on Thursday that a winning ticket from Wednesday's $448 million Powerball jackpot drawing was genuine and it will introduce the winner at a news conference on Thursday afternoon.

The ticket was one of three winning tickets from the drawing. The other two winning tickets were purchased in New Jersey.
