Powerball Winners Revealed

Associated Press

ROCKY HILL, Conn. (AP) – Three Connecticut men who work at a startup asset management firm have claimed a $254 million Powerball jackpot.

Gregg Skidmore, Brandon Lacoff and Tim Davidson revealed themselves as the winners Monday at the Connecticut Lottery headquarters. The three are from the Greenwich area and are taking the after-tax lump sum of nearly $104 million in cash. They say a significant portion will go to charity.

Davidson bought the $1 quick pick ticket for the Nov. 2 drawing at the Shippan Point Getty station in Stamford. The winning numbers were 12-14-34-39-46, Powerball 36.

Skidmore says: “It feels good.”

The jackpot was the largest ever won in Connecticut and the 12th biggest in Powerball history.

The three men work as asset managers at a small firm called Bell Asset Management.

    I wonder, do you have to give your name if you win? I wouldn’t want anyone knowing my name if I won that much money…..

    Yes you do. You have to agree to let them use your name in promotional materials. This is why most people get a lawyer and get everything in order before they approach the lottery office.
