STATE — A Powerball ticket sold in New Jersey is worth $211.7 million after Saturday night’s drawing.
It was the lone ticket sold in the multi-state lottery that matched all six numbers — 6, 16, 20, 31 and 36, and the Powerball: 8.
State lottery officials announced Sunday that the ticket was bought at Gene’s Market and Deli on Speedwell Avenue in the Morris County community of Morris Plains.
Officials report that 1,664,109 players won prizes totaling more than $17.1 million in addition to the top prize.
Twelve Powerball players matching the first five numbers but not the Powerball will walk away with $200,000 apiece, and two more, sold in Colorado and Oklahoma, won $1 million because they were $2 Power Play tickets.
Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot ratchets back down to $20 million. Powerball is available in 41 states, as well as the District of Columbia and Virgin Islands, with drawings held on Wednesday and Saturday nights at 11 p.m.
