powerball-feb-1
The Powerball jackpot for the Feb. 1, 2014, drawing was $194 million.

A Powerball ticket sold in Gloucester County won $1 million in Wednesday's drawing.

Nobody matched all the numbers, so Saturday's jackpot rose to an estimated $194 million for the annuity, $110.7 million for the cash.

Tonight's Mega Millions jackpot is worth $84 million for the annuity, $46 million for the cash.

The Gloucester County ticket, purchased at the Acme Market at 1619 Center Square Road in Swedesboro, was one of five nationwide to win $1 million. They matched the first five numbers -- 11, 23, 28, 32 and 47 -- but not the Powerball of 20. The others were sold in New York, Illinois, Florida and Louisiana.
