Winner Claims $222.6 Million Powerball Jackpot

TRENTON – New Jersey Lottery Executive Director James Carey announced that the holder of the winning Powerball jackpot ticket from the Monday, June 10, drawing has come forward to claim the prize. This is the second largest jackpot won in New Jersey in 2024, behind the March 26, $1.13 billion Mega Millions jackpot.

The lucky player had the sole winning jackpot ticket and elected the cash option of $104.7 million. When they came to the Lottery for their claim meeting they were still trying to wrap their head around the win. They heard the jackpot discussed on the radio, but some of the reported facts did not match. However, something told them to check their ticket and they got the surprise of a lifetime. Their Quick Pick ticket was a match. They immediately called a close friend to share the news and the friend could not believe it.

As of this writing, the winner has not made any plans for the money. The lucky ticket was purchased at Preet Food Mart in Lindenwold, Camden County. On Tuesday, June 11, Executive Director Carey visited the retail location and presented them with a ceremonial $30,000 bonus check for selling the winning ticket. The co-owners, husband and wife Tejinder Singh and Rajvinder Kaur Ghotra are planning on traveling with the bonus money. They have never been to Europe and this windfall presents many different opportunities.
