WOODBURY - (AP) The Garden State may have to change its name to the Lucky State.

Lottery officials say two of the three tickets for Wednesday's $448 million Powerball jackpot were sold in New Jersey. The other ticket was sold in Minnesota.

The numbers drawn Wednesday night were 05, 25, 30, 58, 59 and Powerball 32.

The (Newark, N.J.) Star-Ledger reports that a spokeswoman for the New Jersey Lottery said early Thursday that one of the tickets was purchased at a Super Stop & Shop store in South Brunswick and the other one at an Acme Markets store in Little Egg Harbor.
