The 16 public employees from New Jersey who had one of the three winning tickets in last week's $448 million Powerball jackpot have come forward to claim their prize.

The Ocean County employees are calling themselves "Ocean's 16," a play on the "Ocean's Eleven" series of movies. The group showed up at state lottery headquarters Monday and posed with an oversized mock check made out to Ocean's 16.

Lottery officials say each will get about $3.8 million after taxes.

Lottery officials are introducing the winners to the public at a news conference Tuesday in the town of Toms River, where they work.

A suburban Minneapolis man has also claimed one of the prizes. The holder of the third winning ticket, also sold in New Jersey, has not yet come forward.
