TRENTON – Tonight’s Powerball jackpot is worth up to $170 million. No one has won the game’s top prize since a Pennsylvania couple claimed the jackpot worth $128.8 million in the Christmas Eve drawing last year.
Two lucky New Jersey Lottery players did win the Powerball third prize of $10,000 in the Saturday, Jan. 28 drawing. One winning ticket was sold at Rugmill Deli & Convenience in Freehold; the other at Manahawkin Gulf Express in Manahawkin.
According to New Jersey Lottery Executive Director Carole Hedinger, in addition to the two $10,000 winners, 45,168 other New Jersey players took home an estimated $241,881 in prizes ranging from $4 to $200.
The winning numbers for the Saturday, Jan. 28 drawing were: 05, 33, 41, 54, and 59 and the Red Power Ball number was 13.
Tonight’s 11 p.m. Powerball drawing will be shown live on the New Jersey Lottery’s website, NJLottery.net.
The multi-state Powerball game is played in 44 states and jurisdictions. Beginning with the Jan. 18 drawing, the game’s rules changed to promote larger prizes and better odds and the ticket price increased to $2.
