Powerball ticket sold in NJ scores for $1 million

Posted: May 18, 2012

No one won Wednesday night’s Powerball jackpot but a ticket sold in New Jersey scored for $1 million.

The New Jersey Lottery says the ticket was sold at the Super Stop & Shop, 24 Summerfield Blvd., South Brunswick, Middlesex County.

The winning numbers were 3, 7, 21, 28 and 43 with the Powerball 2.

Five other tickets sold in other parts of the country also had the first five numbers but not the Powerball. One ticket each sold in Wisconsin and West Virginia also

won $1 million while one ticket each sold in Colorado, Wisconsin and Oklahoma won $2 million because the buyers opted for the powerplay option.

The top prize for Saturday night’s Powerball drawing is now up to $100 million, or $63.8 cash.

The jackpot for Mega Millions has rolled back to $12 million, $9 million cash, for Friday night’s drawing after a ticket sold in California won Tuesday nights drawing worth $25 million.
