There was one New Jersey Lottery ticket sold that matched four of the five white balls and the Powerball drawn for the Wednesday, Aug. 9 drawing winning the $50,000 third-tier prize.
If that ticket had been purchased with the Power Play Multiplier option, it would have been worth $200,000.
The winning ticket from Wednesday night’s drawing was sold at Aberdeen Exxon, 1164 Route 34, Aberdeen in Monmouth County.
The winning numbers for the Wednesday, Aug. 9 drawing were: 12, 30, 36, 47 and 62. The Red Power Ball number was 09. The Multiplier number was 04.
The Powerball jackpot rolls to $356,000,000 for the next drawing to be held Saturday, Aug. 12 at 10:59 pm.
In addition to the third-tier prizewinning ticket sold, there were 87,243 New Jersey players who took home an estimated $491,448 in prizes ranging from $4 to $400, according to Lottery Executive Director Carole Hedinger.
“Congratulations to all of the lottery players who purchased winning tickets and to the retailers that sold them,” said Hedinger. “I’d like to remind players to purchase their Powerball tickets with a winning attitude and add Power Play to the ticket purchase. Power Play doubles the second prize from one million dollars to two million dollars and multiplies all of the seven lower prize sets available in the game by the number drawn that evening. The jackpot prize is not multiplied.”
