The Powerball jackpot for Wednesday’s lottery drawing has reset again after someone who bought a ticket at a New Jersey convenience store hit Saturday’s $20 million jackpot.

The winning numbers were: 17, 33, 35, 42, 52. The Powerball drawn was 9 with a Power Play of 3X

Saturday’s drawing was the second straight in which a jackpot-winning ticket was sold. The top prize for the $731.1 million drawing on Jan. 31 was won in Maryland.

Quick Mart in Clifton sold the $23.2 million jackpot winner and also sold a $1 million ticket for Saturday’s drawing. A $2 million ticket was bought at at QuickChek on Route 206 in Stanhope. It’s worth an extra $1 million because the winner spent an extra $1 for the Power Play option.

They were among 43 second-prize tickets sold nationally, including 12 in New York.

In addition, there were third-prize, $50,000 tickets bought in Atlantic City, Bellmawr and Little Silver. Each matched four numbers plus the Powerball.

Saturday’s winning numbers were: 5, 8, 17, 27, 28. The Powerball drawn was 14 with a Power Play of 3X.

The odds of hitting the Powerball jackpot are 292,201,388 to 1. A player who buys a $2 ticket has about a 1 in 11,688,053 chance to match five numbers and win at least $1 million, while the odds are 913,129 to 1 of winning the third prize of at least $50,000.

Powerball is played on Wednesday and Saturday in 45 states, Washington D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

The New Jersey Lottery office in Lawrence is open by appointment only. You can still claim your winnings — provided they’re less than $599.50 — in person at any retailer.

The lottery is also accepting mailed claims, though officials warn payments might be temporarily delayed. Winners are advised to make copies of the claim form and the winning ticket for their records.
