The winner numbers drawn were: 5-25--26-44-66 with the Powerball 9.

"The New Jersey Lottery is thrilled to announce that the sole winning ticket of the May 7th Powerball drawing was purchased in the Garden State," the New Jersey Lottery said in a statement. "The $429.6 million jackpot winning ticket was sold in Mercer County and matched the 5 white balls and the Powerball."
