A New Jersey mother, Pearlie Smith, and her seven adult children bought the winning Powerball ticket last week and will take home $429.6 million dollars, CNN reported.

They only spent $6 on the tickets.

At a press conference on Friday, Valerie Arthur, one of her daughters, told the press, “It was a big shock.”

The family opted for lump sum of $284 million, which will be about $35 million each, CNN noted.

They’ve also hired a team of lawyers and advisors to help invest their new wealth wisely.

“If it does change me I think it will change me for the better,” said Arthur, when asked about her new wealth. “I know you receive and you give. That is the rule.”

Congrats Smith fam!
