A $10,000 Winning Mega Millions Ticket Sold In Lawrenceville
A $10,000 winning Mega Millions lottery ticket from last night (October 16)'s big drawing was sold at the Corner Express on Lawrenceville Pennington Road, according to the Patch.
Whoa! This is where I live. Yes, I've been in this very store! But, sadly, I didn't buy a ticket, so I know it can't be me. Yet, for some reason: I'm just as excited as if I bought it myself.
The winning ticket matched 4 of the 5 white balls and the Gold Mega Ball. So if you bought a ticket from that store, be sure to check it.
If you need them again, here's the winning numbers from last night's drawing:
03, 45, 49, 61 and 69 with Mega Ball 09
By the way, if that player had chosen the "Megaplier" option, that ticket would have been worth $50,000.
The next drawing is Friday night (which right now the estimated jackpot is at nearly $900 million). Some say it could go over $1 billion. So I may have to break down and buy a ticket.
This wasn't New Jersey's only big winner because a million dollar ticket was sold up in Cedar Knolls, Morris County.
