The New Jersey Lottery said Sunday that details about the winning ticket would be released Monday, declining to reveal where it had been purchased and whether anyone had immediately come forward.

Powerball is played in 42 states, the District of Columbia, and the US Virgin Islands. Retailers in New Jersey said the growing jackpot had spurred a big boost in ticket sales in recent days.
