Powerball Jackpot Climbs to $495,000,000!
One New Jersey Lottery Ticket Wins $50,000
TRENTON (March 14, 2019) – Without a winner for Wednesday’s Powerball drawing, the jackpot has climbed to $495 million ($300.2 million cash value), the 8th largest in Powerball history. There was one New Jersey Lottery ticket sold that matched four of the five white balls and the Powerball drawn for the Wednesday, March 13th drawing winning the $50,000 third-tier prize. If that ticket had been purchased with the Power Play Multiplier option, it would have been worth $150,000. The winning ticket from Wednesday night’s drawing was sold at 7-Eleven #34695, 310 Huyler St., South Hackensack in Bergen County.
The winning numbers for the Wednesday, March 13th drawing were: 18, 36, 45, 47 and 69. The Red Power Ball number was 14. The Multiplier number was 03. The Powerball jackpot rolls to $495,000,000 for the next drawing to be held Saturday, March 16th 10:59 pm.
In addition to the third-tier prizewinning ticket sold, there were 82,681 New Jersey players who took home an estimated $431,934 in prizes ranging from $4 to $300, according to Lottery Acting Executive Director James Carey.
“Congratulations to all of the lottery players who purchased winning tickets and to the retailers that sold them,” said Carey. “I’d like to remind players to purchase their Powerball tickets with a winning attitude and add Power Play to the ticket purchase. Power Play doubles the second prize from one million dollars to two million dollars and multiplies all of the seven lower prize sets available in the game by the number drawn that evening. The jackpot prize is not multiplied.”
