LANSING, Mich. - The winner of the $310 million Powerball jackpot is Julie Leach, 50, of Three Rivers, Michigan.

The Michigan Lottery held a press conference Tuesday morning to introduce Julie and her family.

Julie learned that she was the winner while she was on a work break in the drive-thru of a McDonald's while waiting for her food.  She went back to work and some co-workers looked at her numbers to help her verify that she had actually won.  Then, she quit!

The winning numbers in the drawing were 21-39-40-55-59 with a Powerball of 17 and3x Power Play.  The ticket was purchased at the Three Rivers West Shell gas station, located at 1223 W. Michigan Avenue.  Leach took the lump sum payout.
