    We've seen their picture, but today, the public is learning about the lucky group of 16 Ocean County workers that hit the lotto last Wednesday.

    Dubbed the "Ocean's 16," a nod to the "Ocean's Eleven" series of movies, the winners validated their Powerball ticket Monday for a portion of the $448 million jackpot.

    A check for more than $86 million was presented to the group at Lottery Headquarters. Each will get about $3.8 million after taxes, according to lottery spokeswoman Judith Drucker.

    Today, newly-minted millionaires are being introduced by lottery offiicials in Toms River, the town where they work.

    The winning ticket was sold at a Little Egg Harbor Township Acme.

    A suburban Minneapolis man, Paul White, claimed one of the Powerball prizes last week.

    The holder of the third winning ticket, also sold in New Jersey, has not yet come forward.
