Million Dollar Powerball Ticket Was Sold in New Jersey Saturday
Someone in New Jersey is a new millionaire.
Saturday's Powerball jackpot swelled to a massive $457 million dollars.
The winning numbers from Saturday night's drawing were 5, 36, 39, 45, and 57. The Powerball drawn was 11 with a Power Play of 2X.
The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot is 1 in 292.2 million.
You have a better chance of being elected President of the United States, being a movie star, going to the emergency room with a pogo-stick-related injury (random, I know,) or having conjoined twins.
Now, I don't want to put a damper on playing. As they say, you have to be in it to win it. Have you ever wondered who "they" are? I digress.
One good example of why it's worth a shot is the yet-to-be-named New Jerseyian who is in possession of a winning million-dollar ticket.
The New Jersey Lottery has confirmed that a winning Powerball ticket from Saturday night's drawing was purchased in the Garden State.
The point of purchase is still unknown, so if you bought a ticket for Saturday, make sure you double-check.
5, 36, 39, 45, and 57. The Powerball drawn was 11 with a Power Play of 2X.
No one hit the jackpot which means the Monday, September 20 jackpot will most definitely be over half a billion dollars.
Time to get that office pool going, right?
