Powerball: 1 Winner in NJ Drawn for $338M Jackpot

March 24, 2013

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Lottery officials say a single ticket sold in New Jersey matched all six numbers in Saturday night's drawing for the $338.3 million Powerball jackpot.

Thirteen other tickets worth $1 million each matched all but the final Powerball number on Saturday night. Those tickets 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 declined to reveal where it had been purchased and whether anyone had immediately come forward.

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

Lottery officials said Saturday's drawing was the fourth largest in the game's history. The Powerball jackpot was last won in early February.
