A New Jersey resident is thrilled to be participating in the Mega Millions lottery. The lucky participant costs a ticket worth $ 2 million! What were the winning numbers?
Not one, but two winners
During a lottery draw on a Tuesday, it turned out that a very lucky person had won $ 2 million. Officials later announced who had bought the winning ticket. In addition, there was another winner: a second prize ticket, also worth $ 2 million, was bought in North Carolina. Tuesday’s winning numbers were 13, 15, 24, 67 and 70.
Doubling the standard price
The two winning tickets have similarities. For example, they both have five numbers and were bought with the Megaplier option. This is double the standard price of $ 1 million. The drawn Mega Ball was 17 with a 2X Megaplier.
Jackpot not won
Unfortunately, no one in the US managed to win the $ 164 million Jackpot. As a result, the top prize for the draw on Friday went up to $ 174 million, with a cash option of $ 134.7 million, and the Powerball Jackpot regularly rises to great heights. For example, it was worth $ 29 million a few Wednesdays, with a cash option of $ 23.8 million.
New Jersey office takes action on behalf of Corona
Incidentally, the New Jersey Lottery office in Lawrence is closed until at least May 15. The reason is the outbreak of the Corona virus, as a result of which walk-in claims will not be accepted. However, you can still claim your winnings from a retailer if the winning amount is less than $ 599.50.
Expiration date of winning tickets extended
The due date for all claims that expire between March 19 and May 15 has been extended by another 30 days from the date of the office opening. Imagine you bought a winning ticket on March 31, 2019. Normally, it wouldn’t expire until a year later, on March 31, 2020. Due to the extension, the claim will only expire this time on June 15, 2020. The expiry date of winning tickets can be extended again later.
