Feeling lucky this week? You should be! The Powerball winning numbers this week are worth at least $425 million, but for six New Jersey lottery winners, their lucky streak is paying off right now! Monday, Nov. 26, 2012, New Jersey Lottery officials announced there were two $1 million second-tier Powerball winners, and four $10,000 third-tier New Jersey Powerball winners in the last drawing, and some of them are already calling to claim their riches!
One of the $1 million lottery winners didn’t waste any time and contacted New Jersey Lottery officials Monday, Nov. 26. That $1 million dollar winning Powerball ticket was purchased in Cape May County at Blitz’s Market, 104 South Main St., Cape May Court House, N.J. She called to “confirm that the prize would in fact be $1 million and was thrilled at the affirmative response. ‘I go with my sisters to Florida each year so I guess I’ll be treating them this year.'” Lottery officials say they are looking forward to meeting her at headquarters sometime in the weeks ahead.
The second winning $1 million ticket was purchased in Essex County at Ferry 99 Cents, 334 Ferry St., Newark, N.J. The Powerball winner has not come forward to claim their prize at this time. In case you missed the drawing, the Powerball winning numbers for Saturday, Nov. 24, were 22, 32, 37, 44, 50, and the red Power Ball number was 34.
