Everybody has been so busy talking about the three-quarters-of-a-billion dollar Powerball jackpot yesterday that other lottery games got little attention.

But, one non-Powerball player here in Ocean County got a pretty nice return on their investment last night.

While there was a $50,000 Powerball ticket sold here in Ocean County, at Plaza Liquors in Manchester, it was a different New Jersey Lottery game that just scored a local player a nice chunk of change.

According to the New Jersey Lottery, a Jersey Cash 5 player matched the 5 numbers in Wednesday (March 27th) night's drawing for a payday of $160,328.

The winning numbers were:

05, 18, 29, 31 and 32

The ticket was sold at the Country Farms store on Drum Point Road in Brick.

So, while your pile of Powerball tickets may be nothing more than confetti at this point, if you played Jersey Cash 5 yesterday, check those numbers, a $160k payday isn't such a bad consolation prize!
