A St. Charles, Mo. couple have claimed the $96.5 Million Powerball Jackpot.

John Brands, 49, said he checked his tickets with the website Sunday morning after the drawing, before heading out to play golf. When all the numbers matched, he woke his wife Susan, 49. She said she first thought the house was on fire, then thought he was just messing with her. John, a Civil Engineer, has already quit his job but Susan is studying web design and plans to finish this semester.

The Brands plan to treat themselves to some decent vehicles and travel, including a trip to New Zealand.
