The Powerball jackpot for Wednesday’s lottery drawing has climbed to an estimated $365 million, with a cash option valued at $207.5 million.
The winning numbers were: 8, 40, 49, 58 and 63. The Powerball drawn was 14 with a Power Play of 3x.
While no one across the country hit Monday’s $348.2 million jackpot, a second-prize, $2 million ticket was bought at QuickChek on Ernston Road in Sayreville, New Jersey Lottery officials said. It matched five numbers but not the Powerball.
In addition, a pair of third-prize tickets matching four numbers plus the Powerball were sold in Bergen County. The $50,000 tickets were bought at Garden State Dairy on Oakland Street in Closter and Ridgefield Park Liquor & Deli on Teaneck Road in Ridgefield Park.
Monday’s winning numbers were 11, 13, 18, 30 and 37. The Powerball drawn was 16 with a Power Play of 3x.
There was also a second-prize, $1 million ticket bought in Texas.
In addition, no one hit the secondary, $10 million drawing that followed the main drawing on Monday. The winning numbers were: 34, 47, 53, 57 and 68. The Double Play Powerball drawn was 2.
The odds of hitting the Powerball jackpot are 292,201,388 to 1. A player who buys a $2 ticket has about a 1 in 11,688,053 chance to match five numbers and win at least $1 million, while the odds are 913,129 to 1 of winning the third prize of at least $50,000.
Powerball is played on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday in 45 states, as well as Washington, D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
