Winning Powerball ticket sold in Passaic, NJ - not Bordentown

Powerball officials announced on Monday morning that the winning $338.3 million ticket was purchased in Passaic, New Jersey.

That announcement came days after the sole winning ticket was sold at Eagle Liquors.

However, the winner has not yet come forward to claim the fourth-largest jackpot in Powerball history.

Previously, the manager of the Love's Travel Stops and Country Store in Bordentown told news outlets that he took a phone call from a truck driver who claimed he bought the winning ticket.

That claim now appears to be untrue.

Meanwhile, the Pennsylvania Lottery said two $1 million Powerball tickets were sold in our area. One was sold 7-Eleven, 255 W. Horsham Road in Horsham, Montgomery County and the other was sold at Hess Express, 3640 Route 309 in Orefield, Lehigh County.

The numbers drawn were 17, 29, 31, 52, 53 and Powerball 31. A lump sum payout would be $221 million.

Powerball is played in 42 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The chance of matching all five numbers and the Powerball number is about 1 in 175 million.
