New Jersey has a winner! Mega Millions announced Saturday morning a winning jackpot ticket from Friday night's illustration was sold in the Garden State for the second time this year, scoring the winner a cool$124 million($100.8 million money). A single ticket matched all 6 numbers– the white balls 8, 33, 39, 54 and 58, plus the gold Mega Ball 17. It's uncertain where in the state the ticket was sold or if the winner has stepped forward.
Back in February, another New Jersey ticket took a$202 million reward, sold in Edison. A$190 million Powerball jackpot winner was sold in Piscataway in April. The jackpot for the next drawing on Tuesday resets to $20 million ($16.2 million money).
