A Passaic man won the $338 million jackpot on March 23rd, and here we are, less than two months later with a big prize.

A $50 million jackpot was awarded to one lucky player on March 30, but the last major Powerball winner was Pedro Quezada, a 44-year-old New Jersey man, who won on March 23. It marked the fourth-largest jackpot in Powerball history.

Lottery spokeswoman Judith Drucker says in mid-January, the starting jackpot increased to $40 million. The jackpot increases after each drawing without a big winner have gone from $5 million to $10 million, thus growing jackpots faster.

“So we just encouraged everybody to go out there and get in the game and buy their tickets, and hopefully New Jersey brings it home once again.”

Drucker says the second prize has also been increased from $200,000 to $1,000,000.
