The winning Powerball ticket is worth $50,000

New Jersey Lottery officials say a winning $50,000 ticket was purchased at the Shoprite on Route 37 in Toms River recently.

The ticket was for the February 12th Powerball drawing.

The winning Powerball numbers for February 12th were 17, 36, 43, 53, and 67. The Powerball number was 14.  The Double Play numbers for the drawing were 29, 49, 51,61, and 66. The Powerball number was 2.

For someone to hit the $50,000 prize, they would have had to match 4 of the numbers plus the Powerball number.

As of yet, no winner of the prize has been announced.
