Get your Powerball tickets early!

Tonight’s Powerball jackpot has an annuity value of $400 million and the jackpot is likely to go even higher for tonight's 11 p.m. drawing.

Tonight’s jackpot has a cash value of $223.6 million and is the fifth largest ever offered in the United States.  No one has won the jackpot in the multi-state game in the 11 drawings since the last huge jackpot on August 7. Two winners from that jackpot were from New Jersey including The Ocean’s 16 group of county workers from Ocean County who bought their ticket at the Acme supermarket in Little Egg Harbor.
