"Congratulations to these fortunate lottery players,” Lottery Executive Director Carole Hedinger said in a press release. “These lucky players now join the growing ranks of New Jersey Powerball winners.”
The winning numbers were 05, 16, 22, 23 and 29 and the Red Powerball number was 6. Another Powerball drawing will be held on Dec. 3 at 11 p.m. The amount was reset to $40 million after Wednesday's winnings.
