Single Winning Ticket for $429 Million Powerball Mega JackpotPublished May 8, 2016 by Sol FH
A whopping $429 million has been won by a single ticket holder in the Garden State.
Winning the lottery is one of the most common dreams shared by millions of people around the world. Few people ever get to realize this dream, except for a lucky Powerball ticket holder, whom purchased a ticket in New Jersey for the Saturday Night draw. The winner has yet to come forward, which is usually the case for mega-jackpots, and this being the ninth-highest lottery jackpot of all time, it is common not to claim the prize until after a few months.
The winning numbers were selected just a little bit before 23:00 EDT and were 25, 66, 44, 5 and 26 with the Powerball number being 9. This was the biggest lottery jackpot won since January this year when three lucky ticket holders split the record breaking $1.6 billion at that time.
This draw followed 17 consecutive Powerball draws without a winner and the jackpot grew by some $15 million on the day of the draw thanks to increased ticket sales. Powerball is played in 44 states, Puerto Rico, Washington DC and the US Virgin Islands.
