ROCKY HILL, Conn. (AP) — Three asset managers from Connecticut's affluent New York suburbs claimed a $254 million Powerball jackpot on Monday off a $1 ticket.

Greg Skidmore, Brandon Lacoff and Tim Davidson came forward as trustees for The Putnam Avenue Family Trust, which they formed after Davidson bought the winning ticket at a Stamford gas station. At least two of them live in Greenwich, one of America's wealthiest towns.

They will take 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 BP gas station in Stamford. It was the only ticket he bought. The winning numbers were 12-14-34-39-46, Powerball 36.

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

The three men work at a small, startup asset management firm called Belpointe LLC in Greenwich. They appeared with their lawyer at a news conference and didn't say much.

"It feels good," Skidmore said.

Lottery officials had used billboards across the state to urge the ticket holder to come forward as the weeks went by without a winner.

Ranjit Singh, the gas station manager, said lottery officials called the station at about 10:30 a.m. Monday to announce that the winning ticket had been sold there. The station receives $100,000 for selling the winning ticket.

Singh said he didn't know the winners and doesn't remember selling the winning ticket.

"We're really happy," Singh said. "Christmas is a little early.". 4228767.html

Well maybe these guys won't be broke in a week. Too many times you see someone down to their last dollar blow it in no time.

The lottery is a tax for people that are bad at math.

I think I remember a case of some sex offender in florida winning the big jpot a few years ago...That's why i don't believe in all this karma crap, god, jesus, the spaghetti monster, seems the worst you are the more luck is on your side.

What address do I write to...I'm a "charity case" in need of some money..I would love to build up my studio so I can be a more productive person. Maybe they will hand some money over..

WTF are they buying lotto for in the first place?

I was just going to post this article (Glad I searched first).

Doesn't this sound fishy to anyone else?

When the hell does anyone split a dollar lottery ticket with their boss and co worker? If they were pooling for tickets, which doesn't seem the case, then shouldn't there have been more then one ticket?

When I buy a ticket, it's to split with my significant other, friends, and charity. Whenever I played with coworkers, we would pool some money together, not 33.33333 cents each. Very strange.

This man decided to split it with his coworker and boss, who all work manage wealthy accounts for a living, meaning they are rich, meaning they understand that the lottery is a poor man tax. Why would they play?

"They sat stoically at a conference table sipping bottled water as Kurland answered questions, declining to describe the trio's relationship with one another, how they came to purchase a $1 ticket..."

They wouldn't answer questions in regards to their relationship or how they came to buy the ticket together. They sat stoically? Without emotion for the largest Lottery win in Connecticut's history?

I have a feeling and I've never thought about it before... Perhaps the lottery is now compromised (since the Lottery was the 10th largest, the funds were given to this group for whatever reason.

If everything else is corrupted in our society, then why would the lottery be not corrupted?
