$338 MILLION DOLLAR WINNER

News

Lottery officials say one single ticket sold in the state of New Jersey has apparently matched all six numbers in last night's drawing for the $338.3 million Power-ball jackpot. This was the lucky 13th drawing held since a Virginia man won a $217 million jackpot Feb. 6.

Thirteen other lotto tickets worth $1 million each matched all but the final Power-ball number last night. Those tickets were sold in New Jersey and 10 other states. Lottery officials said there was also one Power Play Match 5 winner in Iowa.

The New Jersey Lottery said Sunday that details about the winning ticket would be released on Monday, declining to reveal where it had been purchased and whether anyone had immediately come forward. It was the sixth largest jackpot in history.

To make sure you have a moment to double check your tickets, the numbers drawn are 17, 29, 31, 52, 53 and Power-ball 31. A lump sum payout would be $221 million.
