Powerball tickets worth $150K and $50K sold in N.J.

A pair of third-prize tickets were sold in New Jersey for Saturday’s $105 million Powerball drawing. 

Both tickets matched four numbers plus the Powerball with one worth $150,000 since the winner spent an extra $1 to exercise the Power Play option, state lottery officials said Monday. 

The $150,000 ticket was bought at Super Stop & Shop on Hamburg Turnpike in Wayne.

Someone also purchased a ticket worth $50,000 at the Shell gas station on New Brunswick Avenue in Perth Amboy.

Meet the winner of the $315.3 million Powerball prize

Saturday’s winning numbers were 6, 10, 15, 25 and 36. The Powerball drawn was 14 and the multiplier was 3x. 

No one across the country hit the jackpot. Three second-prize tickets were sold, one worth $2 million, the others $1 million apiece. A retailer in Idaho sold the $2 million ticket, which was bought with Power Play. The other two were bought in Indiana and Minnesota. 

Wednesday’s drawing is worth $121 million with a cash option of $72.3 million. 

Powerball is played in 44 states, Washington D.C, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
