Somebody just won LIFE CHANGING money! And this windfall wasn't even as a result of playing Powerball or Mega Millions.

A highly profitable ticket for Jersey Cash 5 matched all five numbers drawn on Friday, March 1, 2024, according to NJ Lottery. It ended up being worth $1,160,018! That's a NICE chunk of change, huh?!

Those numbers were: 13, 19, 20, 24 and 27 and the XTRA number was: 03

That lottery winner must have been FLOORED once they realized their good fortune, and their brain flooded with all the ways that kind of cash flow could make their life easier, lol. I know mine would be!

Goodbye credit card bills and student loans, hello debt-free life and vacation!
