The $1 million Powerball ticket sold in New Jersey for Wednesday’s $345 million lottery drawing was purchased at a supermarket in Morris County, and six other tickets worth $50,000 were bought in New Jersey for the Wednesday night drawing.
The $1 million ticket was bought at ShopRite on Valley Road in the Stirling section of Long Hill, New Jersey lottery officials said Thursday morning. It matched five numbers but not the Powerball.
No one hit the jackpot, pushing the top prize for the next drawing on Saturday to an estimated $430 million with a cash option of $248 million. It’s the 18th-largest prize in U.S. lottery history.
