The Mega Millions lottery jackpot has gotten most of the attention in New Jersey recently, but Powerball is rarely very far behind.

Powerball’s fifth consecutive jackpot drawing without a winner took place on Wednesday, which means the next grand prize will reach the $100 million mark. Again.

According to the game’s web site, the Powerball jackpot for the drawing of Saturday, December 7 will now be an estimated $100 million.

The cash option value comes in at $56.1 million.

The winning Powerball numbers for the drawing of Wednesday, December 4 were 6, 9, 11, 31, and 44, and the Powerball was 25. USA Mega reported that seven players matched the first five numbers without getting the Powerball to win $1 million. Three of those winners came from Oklahoma, one was from California, one from Indiana, and one each from Missouri and Washington DC earn $2 million for including the Power Play option.

In Jersey Cash 5 news, the New Jersey Lottery web site reported that a winning ticket for the drawing of Thursday, December 5 worth $169,483 was purchased in Mercer County. It was sold at Risoldi’s Great Valu Market in Mercerville.

The Lottery web site reminds players that they can turn non-winning Powerball tickets worth $10 or more into something of value. The Powerball promotion will give ten players a chance to go to the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s first Fan Fest in Cleveland, Ohio in May 2014.

Winners get the opportunity to go to a private tailgate party, and spend time with 100 Hall of Fame players. The winners also receive round trip airfare, deluxe hotel accommodations, and spending money of $500.

The NJ Lottery site notes that players can enter the free membership VIP Club at njlottery.net. They can enter an unlimited amount of times, but each entry has to come from a separate non-winning Powerball ticket valued at $10 or higher.
