Lottery Winner Will Seeley, New Jersey State Lottery: If we were going to have a Hollywood script writer write the story of 16 hardworking people in Ocean County, many of whom had a lot of damage to their homes — we all in Ocean County suffered from that storm — and that one of the winners was the daughter of the man who wrote the lottery law in New Jersey, nobody would buy this story because they would say it’s not true. But it is true.
LISA PRESUTTO, lottery winner: I couldn’t believe it. I got up, did my usual morning thing. I was having my cup of coffee. I looked up the winning lottery numbers, and I saw that number 32 was the Powerball. And I’m, like, 32? I knew that we had 32 four different times, because Willie had been writing down how many different Powerball combinations we had.
