The Wisconsin Lottery announced yesterday that a married couple from the Oneida Indian Reservation claimed a winning Powerball ticket worth $316.3 million, their half of the jackpot worth $632.6 million, shared with another winning ticket purchased in California.

The winner of the jackpot is Cliff Webster, a resident and citizen of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin. Cliff and his wife Tammy claimed the winning ticket, worth a cash value of $225.1 million. Webster chose the cash option instead of annual payments, and after paying federal and state taxes, takes home $153.9 million.

It was the seventh largest jackpot in Powerball history.
