Nobody hit the latest multistate lottery jackpots, but a Philadelphia ticket just missed, winning $2 million in Saturday's Powerball drawing, a day after a Camden County ticket won $250,000 in Mega Millions.
The winning ticket was sold at Long Newsstand, 310 Oregon Ave., in South Philadelphia. It matched the first five numbers drawn, 8, 14, 15, 16 and 27, while having the Power Play prize-sweetener option. It missed only the Powerball, which was 26.
New Jersey, along with New York and Arizona, each had a $1 million winner, who matched five numbers without the Power Play. The Jersey ticket, though, wasn't around the corner. It was sold at a 7-Eleven in Elmwood Park, Bergen County.
