They had the right numbers, but the wrong day.

Workers at a New Jersey restaurant thought they’d won last Saturday’s $900 million Powerball jackpot, but it turned out they had the right numbers for the wrong day. NBC News says video shows the workers at Grissini’s Restaurant in Englewood Cliffs, who’d done a group pool, reading out the winning numbers and crying and yelling as they thought they’d hit the jackpot. But it turned out the numbers they’d bought for Saturday’s drawing — 2, 11, 47, 62, 63 and a Powerball of 17 — had actually been the exact winning numbers of the previous Wednesday’s drawing, and they’d read off those numbers by mistake. No one had matched those numbers in the Wednesday drawing, leading to the growing record  jackpot. It’s not clear when they figured out they were wrong, but one worker said, “I still can’t believe it. What a feeling.”
