"Apparently, the winner was listening to my advice during today's press conference regarding getting the ticket validated," ABC News quoted Carole Hedinger, executive director of the New Jersey Lottery, as saying in a statement.
According to WABC-TV in New York, a man named Pedro Quezada, 44, showed up at the store today claiming that he was the winner.
However, as of Monday evening, lottery officials still had not confirmed the winner's name.
Quezada told reporters in Spanish that he was "very happy" and that he intended to help his family.
If the jackpot is taken in a lump sum, the amount left after taxes would be a cool 151,920,000 dollars, Hedinger said.
Sunil Sethi, 51, the owner of Eagle Liquor, was ecstatic his store sold the winning ticket.
For its part, Eagle Liquor will receive a 10,000-dollar bonus for selling the winning ticket.
