The ShopRite In Waretown Just Sold A Big Winning Lottery Ticket
We're getting the heads up today on another nice lottery win for Ocean County, with a big ticket ticket (pun intended) coming from the ShopRite in Waretown.
In a Wednesday press release, the New Jersey Lottery said that the big win came courtesy of the multi-state Mega Million drawing from last night (Tuesday, November 17th).
While the ticket didn't hit the huge Mega Millions jackpot that's ballooned to nearly $200 million in the last few weeks, it did match 4 of the 5 white balls as well as the Gold Mega Ball, a combination that's good for a $10,000 payday.
Sure, there's a big difference between $10,000 and $176,000,000, but hey, considering the fact that the biggest lottery payday that the majority of us have won is in the neighborhood of just a few bucks, 10-grand is nothing to sneeze at!
If you bought a Mega Millions ticket from the ShopRite in Waretown for the Tuesday, November 17th drawing, get your ticket. Here are the winning numbers from last night's drawing:
08, 13, 35, 46, and 68
The Gold Mega Ball was 16.
This is the second hefty win for the Route 9 grocery store in only a year and a half. Back in April of 2019, the Waretown ShopRite sold a New Jersey Lottery ticket that won the player over $150,000.
