$1 Million Winning Powerball Ticket Sold in NJ
Don't throw out your Powerball tickets from Wednesday night's drawing just yet.
There was a $1 million winning ticket sold in New Jersey. It matched 5 of the 5 white balls (missing the Powerball). So close to that huge $768.4 million prize, but hey, $1 million isn't bad. I'd take it.
News 12 New Jersey is reporting that the lucky ticket was sold up in Hunterdon County at Frenchtown Market, located at 28 6th Street in Frenchtown. Darn, that's not where I bought my ticket.
That wasn't the only winner in New Jersey. Nine other tickets matched 4 out of the 5 white balls and the Powerball. They each won $50,000. I'd be ecstatic with that too.

Check your tickets. The winning numbers were 16, 20, 37, 44, and 62. The Red Power Ball number was 12. The Multiplier number was 3.
One big winning ticket was sold in Wisconsin for the $768.4 million. Can you imagine winning that kind of money? The winner must be in shock. I wonder if he/she/they went to work?
