Toms River NJ Lottery Ticket Wins Big With A $1.7 Million Jackpot
If you've played the New Jersey Lottery in the last few days, I can not encourage you enough to check your tickets because a Toms River player just hit a huge jackpot!
In a press release that was sent out just a little while ago, the New Jersey Lottery announced that a single player hit all 5 of the numbers for the Friday, September 4th drawing of the Jersey Cash 5 game.
Friday's jackpot was a big one, too, weighing in at $1,753,211.
The winning ticket was sold at the Silverton Pharmacy on Hooper Avenue.
If this is all sounding like something that could apply to you, go grab your ticket, here are the winning numbers:
05, 22, 26, 28, and 43
The XTRA Number was 03.
You might remember that back in June the New Jersey Lottery announced that the jackpots for the popular Jersey Cash 5 game would be increasing.
Since then, a number of the Jersey Cash 5 jackpots have soared past $1.5 million, with a $1,669,143 jackpot coming up in early August, and a record $1.8 million Jersey Cash 5 jackpot less than two weeks ago.
Friday's $1,753,211 prize now becomes the 2nd highest in Jersey Cash 5 history.
