A $50,000 Powerball ticket was sold for Saturday’s lottery drawing at a supermarket in Middlesex County, official said.
The third-prize ticket was purchased at ShopRite on Route 35 in Woodbridge, the New Jersey Lottery said. It matched four numbers plus the Powerball.
In addition, a $10,000 third-prize ticket was bought for Tuesday’s Mega Millions drawing at QuickChek on Ridgedale Avenue in the Cedar Knolls section of Hanover Township in Morris County. It also matched four numbers plus the Mega Ball.
No one across the country hit Tuesday’s $315 million Mega Millions jackpot. There were also no second-prize, $1 million tickets sold.
Tuesday’s winning numbers were: 3, 19, 32, 39 and 59. The Mega Ball drawn was 24 with a Megaplier of 3X.
Meanwhile, Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot is worth an estimated $1.2 billion with a cash option of $551.7 million. If someone wins, it would be the third largest Powerball prize and the seventh largest in U.S. lottery history.
No one has hit the Powerball jackpot since a ticket holder in Los Angeles won a $1.08 billion prize in the July 19 drawing. The cash option was worth $558.1 million. The prize has not been claimed. Since then, 32 drawings have been held without a jackpot winner.
Four second-prize tickets were sold for Monday’s Powerball drawing.
