The Powerball jackpot is continuing to climb, but someone in New Jersey became a millionaire Saturday night.
A total of ten players matched the first five numbers without getting the Powerball in the game's drawing of January 24. One of them was from New Jersey, earning the player $1 million.
USA Mega reports that two of the winning tickets were from California, while others came from Connecticut, Kentucky, New Jersey, South Carolina, and Virginia. Two winners from Colorado and New York included the Power Play option with their ticket, increasing their prize to $2 million.
