Have you got the luck of the Irish?
While the luck of the Irish may have been fleeting on St. Patrick’s Day weekend, there is still another chance.
Don’t throw that ticket out; the time has come again to check your Powerball tickets to see if you’re a mega-millionaire. The jackpot for tonight’s drawing is estimated at $261.1 million, and the cash option is worth at least $161.1 million.
Here are the winning numbers: 13, 14, 17, 43 and 54. The Powerball was 15.
The Powerball jackpot cracked the $200 million mark last weekend because no lottery players were able to match all six winning numbers in any of the drawings during the past six weeks. The jackpot soared to $260 million after Saturday night’s drawing, when the streak of no top-prize winners continued.
Only one person has hit the Powerball jackpot so far this year.with a ticket he bought at Richmond International Airport in Virginia on Feb. 6.
In last Wednesday’s drawing, two tickets sold in New Jersey matched four numbers and the Powerball and were worth $10,000 each. On Saturday, one of the 13 million-dollar tickets was sold in the Garden State.
For the weekend drawing, there were 71,342 winners in the state, according to Powerball.
Will any New Jerseyans stand out from the crowd and get the big one tonight? Check your tickets, you may be able to quit your job tomorrow. How great would that be…
