A Half-Million Lottery Win Just Came From Ocean County
Add this one to the list of big lottery wins to come out of Ocean County - somebody bought a ticket locally that just hit big, really big - to the tune of more than half a million bucks!
The winning ticket is for the Jersey Cash 5 drawing from Thursday (October 29th) and is good for a total jackpot of $512,525.
Grab those tickets and check your numbers!
The winning numbers were:
18, 20, 21, 30, and 42
The XTRA number was 03.
The half-million dollar ticket was sold at Princeton Avenue Deli & Dairy in Brick.
As always, if you're holding the lucky ticket from Brick, sign the back of the ticket right away!
It's worth noting that this isn't the first big lottery hit for Princeton Avenue Deli & Dairy, the retailer sold an even bigger winning ticket back in 2018 with an impressive jackpot pushing past the million dollar mark, totaling $1,000,186.
There was another nice win from the Brick convenience store last year too, with a $50,035 New Jersey Lottery win.
Yesterday's half-million dollar win brings the 3-year total for the Princeton Avenue Deli & Dairy to $1,562,746, pushing it into the same tier as other lucky Ocean County lottery retailers for the last five years.
Last week, I dug through pages and pages of data from the New Jersey Lottery for the last 5 years and identified some of the luckiest retailers in Ocean County, retailers who have had either a lot of wins, like the 7-Eleven in Pine Beach (19 big wins since 2015) or the biggest wins, like the Krauszer's on Lacey Road, which sold a lottery ticket that was good for more than $4-million in 2015.
