Powerball tops $200 million, Pa. ticket wins $1 million

Posted: February 05, 2013

The Powerball jackpot crossed the $200 million mark, entering territory where it really starts to soar.

The last time that threshold was passed, back in November, just three rollovers resulted in Powerball's all-time record annuity prize of $587.5 million.

Conditions are again favorable because the Mega Millions jackpot is relatively small for Tuesday's drawing - $19 million for the annuity, $14 million for the cash.

The current Powerball jackpot has been growing since Dec. 29.

Wednesday's Powerball jackpot will be $208 million for the annuity, $130.7 million for the cash, because no one matched all the numbers drawn Saturday night.

They were: 11, 16, 33, 40 and 41, with a Powerball of 34. A Texas ticket won $2 million for matching the first five while also having the Power Play prize-boosting option.

A Pennsylvania ticket was among six that won $1 million for matching the first five without the Power Play. It was sold a Turkey Hill on Route 87 in Montoursville, Lycoming County. That's near Williamsport, north of Harrisburg.

Two of the other million-dollar winners were sold in New York. The others were bought in Massachusetts, Idaho and Washington.

Camden County ticket wins $402,375. A Jersey Cash 5 ticket sold in Atco hit Tuesday's jackpot, matching all five numbers drawn: 10, 13, 21, 22 and 24. It was purchased at One Stop Shoppe at 396 White Horse Pike.

Mega Millions numbers. No one matched all the numbers drawn Friday night - 1, 30, 32, 40 and 41, with Mega Ball of 17. Tickets sold in New York and Michigan matched the first five, winning at least $250,000. Tuesday jackpot, as mentioned above, will worth $19 million for the annuity.
