Player just misses $1.13 billion Powerball prize — but still wins big in New Jersey

A Powerball ticket sold in New Jersey won $1 million, but the player narrowly missed out on the $1.13 billion jackpot, lottery officials said.

The ticket matched five winning numbers but not the Powerball in the drawing Wednesday, April 3, the national Powerball site said.

Nobody won the grand prize, which rises to an estimated $1.23 billion, with a cash value of approximately $595 million, for the next drawing Saturday, April 6, the national Powerball site said.

The winning numbers were 11, 38, 41, 62 and 65, with a Powerball of 15, the New Jersey Lottery said.

Tickets sold in California, Georgia, Massachusetts, Maryland, South Carolina and Washington also matched five numbers but not the Powerball to win $1 million.

What to know about Powerball

To score a jackpot in the Powerball, a player must match all five white balls and the red Powerball.

The odds of scoring the jackpot prize are 1 in 292,201,338.

Tickets can be bought on the day of the drawing, but sales times and price vary by state.

Many people can gamble or play games of chance without harm. However, for some, gambling is an addiction that can ruin lives and families.

If you or a loved one shows signs of gambling addiction, you can seek help by calling the national gambling hotline at 1-800-522-4700 or visiting the National Council on Problem Gambling website.
