New Jersey's $1 million victor on Saturday night was able to match all five winning numbers - 28, 36, 41, 51 and 58 - but did not have the Powerball, which came up 24.

It is now more hard to win the multi-state games, which was exactly the goal of state lottery systems, which supported the changes that have led to larger jackpots.

It's time to check your tickets for the Powerball drawing from Saturday night, December 30, otherwise known as the "New Year's Eve (eve)" drawing.

A $2 bet can make you a multimillionaire if you hold a winning Powerball or Mega Millions ticket this week.

The odds of winning the Powerball lottery game got worse when changes were made in 2015, but the jackpots got larger.

However, Bissen wrote that her decision to come forward was unrelated to any potential roster moves the Twins are considering. Bissen described a struggle with Sano, who was grasping her wrist, as he "leaned down and tried to kiss me, more than once".

The jackpot has a $278.3 million cash value. There was no victor of the $390 million jackpot for the drawing held on Saturday, Dec. 30.

According to Mega Millions, it would be the eighth-largest jackpot won in the game's history if the winning numbers are drawn. The other two states with $1 million tickets were New Hampshire and Iowa. This year, five Iowa Lottery players have claimed prizes of at least $1 million.

By late August, the Powerball had reached $758.7 million, which all went to victor Mavis Wanczyk of MA, making it the largest prize ever awarded to a single ticket.

The next drawing will be Wednesday at 10:59 p.m.
