Considering the economic woes befalling most working-class Americans, it’s no wonder these three rich bankers look a little embarrassed about just winning hundreds of millions more.

Asset managers Greg Skidmore, Brandon Lacoff and Tim Davidson all live in one of America’s most affluent towns, Greenwich, Conn., and yesterday they claimed a staggering $254 million Powerball jackpot. Not a bad investment return for a $1 ticket.

The trio came forward as the trustees of the Putnam Avenue Family Trust, which they formed after Davidson bought the winning ticket at a Stamford, Conn., gas station on Nov. 2.

The men will take an after-tax lump sum of nearly $104 million in cash, with their jackpot the largest ever won in Connecticut and the 12th biggest in Powerball history.
