The Backyard State simply acquired a bit greener: Somebody received the $1 billion Mega Thousands and thousands jackpot Tuesday, and the ticket was offered in New Jersey’s Monmouth County, officers mentioned.

Whereas the winner of the jackpot that has been rising since early December has not come ahead, the New Jersey Lottery on Wednesday introduced ShopRite Liquor in Neptune Township offered the ticket.

The $1.13 billion jackpot is “the most important … ever received in New Jersey,” James A. Carey Jr., the chief director of the New Jersey Lottery, instructed reporters throughout a information convention at ShopRite’s Route 66 location earlier than presenting a $30,000 bonus verify to the retailer.

He added that is the twenty eighth time that New Jersey has received a Mega Thousands and thousands jackpot, the fifth-largest jackpot in Mega Thousands and thousands historical past and the eighth-largest jackpot in United States lottery historical past.

The successful numbers in Tuesday evening’s drawing have been 7, 11, 22, 29, 38 and the gold Mega Ball 4.

“It was not a Fast Decide. It was chosen numbers and it was a one board ticket. One decide,” mentioned Adam Perlow with Northstar New Jersey Lottery Group, a personal operator of the New Jersey Lottery.

Simply because the ticket was offered in New Jersey doesn’t imply the winner lives there.

And the general public could by no means study the individual’s id. New Jersey Lottery winners can stay nameless, in keeping with the sport’s web site. Their names aren’t allowed for inspection underneath the Open Public Data Act, Carey added.

The final time somebody received the jackpot was Dec. 8, and when there isn’t any winner the jackpot rolls over.

The jackpot has now reset to its default $20 million.

The lottery sport is performed in 45 states, in addition to in Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
