One lucky New Jerseyan just jumped into a whole new tax bracket.
A single ticket sold in the Garden State matched all six balls in Wednesday night’s Powerball to win the $190 million jackpot, according to the Powerball website.
The winner could also choose a cash option of $155.9 million.
It was not immediately released where in New Jersey the jackpot winning ticket was sold.
The winning numbers drawn on April 8 were: 2 – 37 – 39 – 48 – 54 and Powerball 5.
One ticket sold in North Carolina matched all five white balls to win $1 MILLION.
Under new rules that the Powerball Product Group announced last week, the Powerball jackpot now has no guaranteed starting jackpot amounts or minimum jackpot increases. The jackpot will reset to $20 million for Saturday night’s drawing. The change was made due to decreased sales during the coronavirus pandemic.
