ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. — More than 40 employees were ready to quit their jobs at an Italian restaurant in Englewood Cliffs after thinking they'd won the $950 million Powerball jackpot on Saturday.

The Grissini Ristorante employees had entered a 42-person pool, but realized that they'd been looking at the winning numbers from a prior drawing when once received a text from a friend, General Manager Michael DeVincenzi told Daily Voice.

One employee quit, but has been rehired, DeVincenzi said.

Grassini employees will be featured on Jimmy Kimmel Wednesday evening.
