There’s A $10k Toms River Winner & Mega Millions Nears A Billion!
While Tuesday night's near-record Mega Millions jackpot of $667 million went unclaimed, the next big prize is setting records with an estimated jackpot nearing $1 billion!
There wasn't a jackpot winner last night, but there were a number of lower tier prize winners, including a $10,000 ticket that was sold right here in Toms River, at the 7-Eleven on Route 37 West.
Last night's winning numbers were:
03, 45, 49, 61 and 69 with Mega Ball 09
By the way, if that player had chosen the "Megaplier" option, that ticket would have been worth $50,000.
So, with the nearly $700 million jackpot rolling over, the new Mega Millions jackpot as of this writing just pushed into record territory, with a $900 million estimated jackpot.
A jackpot, by the way, that could very well breach the $1 billion mark by the time the next drawing rolls around on Friday night.
The Powerball jackpot is also pretty impressive, by the way. While $345 million may not sound like much compared to nearly a billion dollars, it's still worth trying your luck on. That drawing is tonight.
