No big winner, Powerball jackpot jumps to $653 million

The Powerball jackpot has jumped to an estimated $653 million ($350.5 million cash value) for the Wednesday, Feb. 1 drawing.

If a player wins Wednesday’s jackpot, it would be the 8th largest grand prize won in the Powerball game.

The Powerball jackpot rolled after no player matched all six numbers drawn Monday night – white balls 1, 4, 12, 36, 49 and red Powerball 5. Despite there being no jackpot winner, more than 985,000 tickets won cash prizes.

Five New Jersey Lottery tickets matched four of the five white balls and the Power Ball drawn winning the $50,000 second-tier prize. One of those tickets was purchased with the Power Play option, multiplying the prize to $100,000.

Those tickets were sold at the following locations:

  • Atlantic Count ($50,000): Shore True Value Hardware, 515 New Rd., Somers Point;
  • Burlington County ($50,000): BJ’s Deli, 115 Creek Rd., Mount Laurel;
  • Camden County ($50,000): Froggies Discount Liquors, 1009 White Horse Pike, Oaklyn; and
  • Monmouth County ($50,000): Welsh Farms, 22 Wall St., West Long Branch.

Top winners include a winning Match 5 ticket sold in California, eight winning tickets worth $100,000, and 29 winning tickets worth $50,000.

The Powerball jackpot was last hit on November 19, 2022, when a ticket in Kansas won a grand prize worth $92.9 million. Since then, the game has had 31 consecutive drawings without a jackpot winner. Wednesday’s drawing will be the 32nd drawing in the jackpot run.
