Winning Powerball ticket sold in New Jersey

Jackpot was at $338.3 million

DES MOINES, Iowa – A single ticket sold in New Jersey matched all six numbers in Saturday night’s drawing for the $338.3 million Powerball jackpot, lottery officials said.

Thirteen other tickets worth $1 million each matched all but the final Powerball number and were sold in New Jersey and 10 other states.

The New Jersey Lottery said Sunday that details about the winning ticket would be released Monday. It was the sixth largest jackpot in history.

The numbers drawn were 17, 29, 31, 52, 53 and Powerball 31. A lump sum payout would be $221 million.

The 13 tickets for $1 million apiece that matched the first five numbers but missed the Powerball were sold in Arizona, Florida (2), Illinois, Minnesota, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania (2), South Carolina and Virginia.

No one had won the Powerball jackpot since early February, when Dave Honeywell in Virginia bought the winning ticket for the $217 million jackpot.
