Tonightâ€™s drawing was the first one involving New Jersey lottery players. New Jersey started selling Powerball tickets on Sunday.Powerball lottery tickets were a popular item on their first day of sale in the Garden State on Sunday, according to New Jersey lottery officials and retailers. About 10,000 to 15,000 tickets per hour were sold for the multistate lottery that day, said Dominick DeMarco, the stateâ€™s lottery spokesman.
State officials said revenue earned from Powerball sales will benefit the cash-strapped state Treasury. They said other state lotteries have seen increased sales after adding Powerball with very little impact on existing lottery games.Powerball is available in 41 states, as well as the District of Columbia and Virgin Islands, with drawings held on Wednesday and Saturday nights at 11 p.m. New Jersey is already part of the multistate Mega Millions game, which is drawn on Tuesday and Friday nights.
