Garofalo purchased $10 worth of tickets for the drawing at Kwik Farms in Tinton Falls. The winning combination was a quick pick.

According to New Jersey Lottery, Garofalo always thought he’d hit big someday.

“Congratulations to the winner of this incredible jackpot,” said New Jersey Lottery’s Carole Hedinger. “Truly an exciting day all around!”
