Mega Millions Ticket Worth $95M Sold In Monmouth County
TRENTON, N.J. (CBS/AP) — A Mega Millions ticket sold in Monmouth County, New Jersey has matched all six numbers in the latest drawing and will split the estimated $190 million jackpot with the holder of another winning ticket bought in Virginia.
New Jersey Lottery officials say the winning ticket was sold at Kwik Farms in Tinton Falls.
The winner has not yet claimed their $95 million prize.
The retailer will receive a $30,000 bonus for selling the winning jackpot ticket.
The numbers drawn Friday night were 11, 15, 35, 43 and 49. The Mega Ball number was 41.
The Mega Millions jackpot reboots to $12 million for Tuesday’s drawing.
This marks the third major lottery win in New Jersey this year. Pedro Quezada of Passaic won a $338.3 million Powerball jackpot in March, while Angel Guallpa-Mayancela of Orange claimed an $65.7 million Mega Millions jackpot in January.
Besides the big winner in Friday night’s drawing, three tickets sold in New Jersey matched the five Mega Millions numbers, making them worth $250,000 each. One of the winning tickets was sold at 7-11 in Trenton, Mercer County. Another ticket was sold at Country Farm Food Store in Pomona, Atlantic County.
