Winning Powerball tickets: Three $1 million tickets sold in New Jersey

Someone in California won the ultimate Powerball jackpot when they became $2 billion richer from Monday's Powerball drawing. But, three New Jerseyans made out pretty well, too, after three Powerball tickets, each worth $1 million, were sold in New Jersey. 

Officials with the New Jersey Lottery say three tickets from three different stores matched five of the five white balls drawn, winning the $1 million second-tier prize. 

The winning tickets were sold at the following locations:

  • Mercer County: 7-Eleven #27890, 222 Dutch Neck Rd., Hightstown
  • Middlesex County: Atlantis Fresh Market #37, 421 US Highway 1 South, Edison

New Jersey was full of luck as eight more New Jersey lottery tickets matched four of the five white balls and the Powerball drawn, winning eight people the third-tier prize of $50,000. Lottery officials say of those eight tickets, one of them was purchased with Power Play, multiplying the prize to $100,000.
