Imagine going to an Atlantic City casino with dreams of hitting a big jackpot on a slot machine or at a table, you don't, but then you win a big chunk of money from lottery.

That's likely what happened to one lucky person as officials with the New Jersey Lottery say one ticket matched four of the five white balls and the Powerball for Saturday's drawing, winning a $50,000 third-tier prize.

The ticket was sold at the Gift Box inside Caesars in Atlantic City.

The winning numbers for the Saturday drawing were 05, 11, 51, 56, and 61. The Red Powerball number was 02. The Multiplier number was 02.

The lottery says a total of 28,961 New Jersey players took home an estimated $147,569 in prizes ranging from $4 to $200 with Saturday's numbers.

The Powerball jackpot rolls to $184,000,000 for the next drawing to be held Wednesday night.

This $50,000 lottery win at Caesars comes less than two months after someone won $1 million by buying a Mega Millions ticket in Atlantic City. In that instance, the winning ticket was sold at 7-11 on Pacific Avenue.

Just before that big win, South Jersey was on a lottery-winning roll. Just before Christmas, a winning Powerball ticket worth over $529,000 was sold at ShopRite in Hammonton. On December 26th, a $50,000 Jersey Cash 5 ticket was sold at ShopRite in West Berlin. On December 30th, a winning lottery ticket worth over $270,000 was sold at ShopRite in Rio Grande. In January, someone won $10,000 playing Mega Millions at a store in Woodbury Heights and a winning $1 million Mega Millions ticket was sold in Camden County.
