3 NJ Lotto Winners Take Large Prizes, Mega Millions Jackpot Grows
Three lucky New Jersey residents won big this past weekend playing the New Jersey Lottery and the Mega Millions jackpot climbs upward of $50 million.
A Jersey Cash 5 ticket was won for $469,276 in Middlesex County this past Friday. The next day, another lucky winner won $66,206 in Lakewood.
Both were the only winning tickets sold for their respective drawings that matched all five numbers drawn.
At Gorman's Wine and Spirits in Cape May, a New Jersey Lottery player won the second prize of $250,000 in New Jersey's Mega Millions.
"For selling the winning lottery ticket, the Gorman's Wine and Spirits have become one more Lottery 'lucky location' overnight," said Carole Hedinger, NJ Lottery executive director.
The grand prize will now be $52 million for the next upcoming drawing on Tuesday, June 25 at 11 p.m.
