N.J. has 2 of 3 winners in $448M Powerball drawing

The Garden State may have to change its name to the Lucky State.

Lottery officials say two of the three tickets for Wednesday’s $448 million Powerball jackpot were sold in New Jersey. The other ticket was sold in Minnesota.

The numbers drawn Wednesday night were 05, 25, 30, 58, 59 and Powerball 32.

A spokeswoman for the New Jersey Lottery says one of the tickets was purchased at a Super Stop & Shop store in South Brunswick and the other one at an Acme Markets store in Little Egg Harbor.
