The seven men and one woman all work at a ConAgra ham processing plant near the U-Stop convenience store where they bought the winning ticket last week for Saturday’s lottery.

They ended up with the biggest jackpot in U.S. lottery history.

“I didn’t know what to think,” said Robert Stewart, 30, who said he was a maintenance supervisor before the win. “I still don’t know what to think.”

The previous U.S. lottery jackpot record was $363 million for the Big Game, the forerunner of Mega Millions. Powerball’s previous record jackpot, $340 million, was won by an Oregon family in October.

At least three of the winners Wednesday are immigrants.

Quang Dao, 56, who like Dung Tran, 34, came to the U.S. from Vietnam about 16 years ago, said he was looking for freedom when he headed for America. Speaking in broken in English, he said the lottery would change his family’s life back in Vietnam.

Alain Maboussou, a 26-year-old who fled war in Africa’s Republic of Congo, said he planned return to school to work on a degree in business administration.
