Powerball jackpot grows again, two $1 million tickets sold in NJ
No one won the Powerball jackpot in Wednesday night’s drawing. But there were two winning tickets sold in New Jersey worth at least one million dollars and 17 smaller tier prizes.
The winning numbers were: 2, 11, 22, 35, 60 and red Powerball 23. Two tickets in New Jersey matched the five white balls but not the Powerball and are worth $1 million each.
One of those tickets included the Power Play option, increasing the ticket’s prize to $2 million.
The winning tickets were sold in:
$2 million: Raceway, Route 516 in Matawan
$1 million: The Market at Saddle Brook on Fairlawn Parkway in Saddle Brook
$1 million: Wawa on Route 1 in Edison
16 other prizes worth $50,000 were also sold in New Jersey plus one worth $100,000.
Numbers can also be played via the Jackpocket app or online at Lotto.com.
The jackpot for Saturday’s drawing is $1.5 billion ($745.9 million cash), the second-largest jackpot in Powerball history and third-largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history.
