Against a backdrop of gummy bears, birthday balloons and greeting cards, the owners of ShopRite of Hackensack accepted a $30,000 ceremonial check from the New Jersey Lottery on Monday as a bonus for selling a Powerball ticket worth $315.3 million.
The jackpot winner – who has not come forward – bought the ticket at the South River Street store before Saturday night’s lottery drawing. Saturday’s winning Powerball numbers are: 3, 6, 9, 17 and 56. The Powerball is 25 and the Multiplier is 3.
