Powerball tickets, which have been sold in New Jersey since January 2010, cost $2 each. A 10X multiplier is available for the Match 4+1 prize and lower prize tiers when the jackpot is at or below $150 million, or when announced.

The Powerball jackpot has gone without a victor for a 19th drawing in a row, and is growing to an annuity value of $435 million for the next drawing.

"It's exciting to see more Powerball players in our state winning big prizes", said Alice Garland, the lottery's executive director.
