NJ Lottery To Join Powerball This Year

powerballPowerball is coming to New Jersey. State officials announced Thursday that sales of tickets for the multistate lottery would start within the next few months. New Jersey is already part of the multistate Mega Millions game, and officials say revenues earned from Powerball sales will benefit the cash-strapped state Treasury. State Treasurer R. David Rousseau said other state lotteries have seen increased sales after adding Powerball with very little impact on existing lottery games. Powerball is currently available in 31 states, as well as the District of Columbia and Virgin Islands, with weekly drawings held on Wednesday and Saturday nights.
