New Jersey lottery officials say a Mega Millions ticket that’s worth $65.7 million was sold at a store in northern New Jersey.
Carole Hedinger, the lottery’s executive director, says the sole winning ticket for Friday’s drawing was sold at Lisa’s Angel Corp., a deli in Orange. The overall jackpot was $89 million, but the purchaser gets less because they chose the cash option in matching five numbers and the Mega Ball.
The winning numbers drawn were 11, 12, 17, 31 and 48. The Mega Ball number was 1.
Besides the big winner, lottery officials say three other tickets sold in New Jersey matched four numbers and the Mega Ball. Those tickets are worth $10,000 each.
Tuesday’s Mega Millions jackpot is $12 million.
