Somebody is about to get some extra spending money.
New Jersey Lottery officials say a winning Powerball ticket from the Monday, February 14th, drawing was purchased at Wawa on the Black Horse Pike in Mays Landing.
Officials say the winning ticket, "matched four of the five white balls and the Powerball drawn winning the $50,000 third-tier prize."
On top of that, the player opted for Power Play which tripled their prize to $150,000.
