Another Winning NJ Lottery Ticket Was Just Sold In Ocean County
The Ocean County lucky streak is continuing with news of another healthy New Jersey lottery jackpot winning ticket that came from our neck of the woods.
While it's not the massive $1.7 million payday that some lucky local lottery player won earlier this month, it's still nothing to sneeze at.
According to the New Jersey Lottery, the Jersey Cash 5 drawing from this past Saturday (September 19th) produced a pair of jackpot winners for a split of the $401,918 jackpot.
That comes out to $200,959 for each of the two winners, one of which comes from right here in Ocean County.
The New Jersey Lottery reports that the local winning ticket was sold at the Acme on the corner of Routes 35 and 37 in Ortley Beach.
The winning numbers from the Saturday, September 19th drawing are as follows:
03, 17, 19, 24, and 36
The XTRA number was 02.
The other winning ticket from the Saturday drawing came from a deli in Hewitt, NJ, a part of West Milford Township in Passaic County.
This adds on to the impressive lottery wins that have come from Ocean County that stretches back months, with jackpots both smaller and impressively larger, like the $50,000 win in Lanoka Harbor in February of 2019, a million dollar hit from Lakehurst only weeks later, and then plenty more in between before the huge nearly two million dollar payday only two weeks ago in Toms River.
