New Jersey Sells Winning Powerball Tickets Worth $300,000

In the recent Powerball drawings on Saturday and Monday, three third-prize tickets were sold in New Jersey, with one worth $100,000 and two worth $50,000. The $100,000 ticket was purchased at Colonia Convenience Food Store on Inman Avenue in Colonia, Woodbridge, with the Power Play option, doubling its value. A $50,000 ticket was sold at Krauszer's Food Store on West Washington Street in Washington, Warren County. Saturday's winning numbers were: 3, 6, 39, 49, and 67, with a Powerball of 21 and a Power Play of 2X.

In Monday's drawing, another $50,000 ticket was sold at a Phillips 66 gas station on Lakewood Road in Toms River. The winning numbers for that drawing were: 5, 14, 29, 38, and 66, with a Powerball of 1 and a Power Play of 2X. All three third-prize tickets matched four numbers plus the Powerball.

No one won the Saturday $37 million jackpot or Monday's $48 million jackpot, and there were no second-prize, $1 million tickets sold for either drawing. The odds of hitting the Powerball jackpot are 292,201,388 to 1. Powerball drawings are held each Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The Powerball jackpot continues to grow after no one matched all six numbers in the Saturday night drawing. The jackpot for the Wednesday, May 15, 2024 drawing is now an estimated $59 million with a cash option of $27.6 million. Drawings are held three times per week at approximately 10:59 p.m. ET every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday.

A single Powerball ticket costs $2. Players can add the Power Play for an additional $1 to multiply all Powerball winnings except for the jackpot. The Double Play can also be added for one more $1 to have a second chance at winning $10 million. It's important to remember that you only need to match one number in Powerball to win a prize, but that number must be the Powerball worth $4. Matching two numbers won't win anything in Powerball unless one of the numbers is the Powerball.

The recent New Jersey Powerball wins totaling $300,000 across three tickets serve as a reminder of the lottery's popularity and potential prizes. As the current jackpot grows to an estimated $59 million for the upcoming Wednesday drawing, Powerball fever is likely to continue sweeping the 45 states and territories where the game is played. With drawings held three times a week, players will have plenty of chances to try their luck at winning big.
