RIVERDALE, NJ (Morris County) – Six years to the day after a record Mega Millions jackpot of $656 million, another huge jackpot was won on Friday night. The drawing produced a single winning ticket which was sold at the Riverdale Lukoil South in Riverdale.
The ticket matched all six numbers drawn – the white balls 11, 28, 31, 46 and 59, plus the gold Mega Ball 1.
The jackpot winner will receive an estimated prize of $521 million–$317 million cash. That amount is the fourth largest jackpot in the history of the game!
“Hearty congratulations to New Jersey for their big Mega Millions win,” said Gordon Medenica, Mega Millions Lead Director and Maryland Lottery and Gaming Director. “The whole country can’t wait to meet the newest millionaire, but we all shared in the fun of playing.”
March has been a popular month for Mega Millions – this is the eighteenth jackpot won during the month in the game’s nearly 16 year history. The March windfalls include the record Mega Millions prize of $656 million–March 30, 2012–and two other top ten jackpots in addition to Friday night’s bonanza.
