The other winning tickets were sold in central New Jersey and in Minnesota.
The Powerball lotto is played in those states plus Washington state, 40 others plus the District of Columbia and U.S. Virgin Islands.
No winners had claimed the jackpot by midday Thursday.
In addition to the ticket sold at a supermarket in the Sandy devastation area, the other tickets were sold in a Super Shop & Shop store in South Brunswick, N.J., and somewhere in Anoka County, Minn., which includes the city of Anoka and other suburbs north of Minneapolis and St. Paul. The exact location wasn't revealed.
The winning numbers drawn Wednesday night were: 05, 25, 30, 58, 59 and Powerball 32.
During the telecast, Powerball officials announced the jackpot that was pegged at $400 million previously had grown amid a buying frenzy.
Each winning ticket is worth $86 million before taxes, or $58.3 million after taxes, if taken in a lump sum. They are worth $149.4 million over 30 years if the winners choose the annuity option.
Several people were anxiously checking their tickets Thursday morning for would-be winners at the Little Egg Harbor store where one of the three tickets that matched all six numbers was sold.
