CLARK, NJ – One lucky lottery player hit a $50,000 jackpot on a ticket purchased at O’Johnnie’s Variety Store on Wednesday night, according to the New Jersey Lottery.
The winning numbers were: 22, 23, 29, 33 and 55.
The Red Power Ball number was 21. The Multiplier number was 02.
The winning ticket matched four of the five white balls and the Powerball.
“Congratulations to all of the lottery players who purchased winning tickets and to the retailers that sold them,” Lottery Executive Director Carole Hedinger said. “I’d like to remind players to purchase their Powerball tickets with a winning attitude and add Power Play to the ticket purchase. Power Play doubles the second prize from one million dollars to two million dollars and multiplies all of the seven lower prize sets available in the game by the number drawn that evening. The jackpot prize is not multiplied.”
Had the Clark ticket-buyer purchased the Power Play Multiplier option, he or she would have won $100,000.
