While the major Powerball jackpot did not hit in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, it did create new millionaires in those states.
Powerball officials said there are at least three winners of the main jackpot in three different states – California, Tennessee and Florida. Those winners will split the $1.5 billion dollar prize.
Pennsylvania Lottery officials said there were three $1 million dollar winners, which matched all five numbers, but not the Powerball number. The $1 million dollar tickets were sold at:
- Landhope Farms, 101 E. Street Road, Kennett Square, Chester County;
- Turkey Hill, 5 W. Clay St., Lancaster, Lancaster County; and
- Top Star Express, 216 Nazareth Pike, Bethlehem, Lehigh County
In New Jersey, two ticketholders won the second prize, matching five white balls, making those tickets worth $1,000,000 each. One of those ticketholders added the Powerplay multiplier, making that ticket worth $2,000,000.
The $2,000,000 ticket was purchased at the Wawa on Springside Road in Westampton, Burlington County.
The $1,000,000 ticket was purchased at the 7-Eleven on Buckelew Avenue in Jamesburg, Middlesex County.
The Powerball jackpot resets to $40,000,000 for the next drawing, which is held on Saturday, January 16.
