Must Be Muhfuggin Nice: One Grand-Prize Winning Lottery Ticket Sold For $338M Powerball Jackpot In Jersey

- By Bossip Staff



According to NBC News:

A winning ticket for Saturday night’s $338 million Powerball jackpot was sold in New Jersey, lottery officials said early Sunday. The winning numbers in the drawing were: 17, 29, 31, 52, 53, 31. The drawing took place Saturday.

Before the drawing, the jackpot had been estimated at $320 million, but late ticket sales pushed that to $338 million — the fourth-largest Powerball prize ever. The lump-sum option is $211 million. The Multi-State Lottery Association said a grand prize-winning ticket was sold in New Jersey.

People in 42 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands scrambled for Powerball tickets until the last minute, even with odds at about 175 million to one. No ticket had matched the six numbers in Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing, and no one had won the jackpot since early February. The New Jersey Lottery said Sunday that details about the winning ticket would be released Monday, declining to reveal where it had been purchased and whether anyone had immediately come forward. It was the sixth largest jackpot in history.

Damn. That is the ultimate come up! What would you do if you won $221M???
