Two Big Winners of the New Jersey Lottery in Ocean County
What could be better than a person who wins a big pile of money in the New Jersey lottery? How about two.
And these two winners are in Ocean County and the two winning tickets were purchased at grocery stores.
Officials with the New Jersey Lottery Says one lucky ticket matched all five numbers in Saturday night’s Jersey Cash 5 draw and someone is now $ 100,000 richer. The winning numbers for July 3 were 11, 15, 16, 38 and 42 and the XTRA number was 05. This winning ticket was sold at the Shop Rite in Manchester on Route 70 West in the Township of Manchester.
Meanwhile, a day earlier, three tickets matched the five numbers in the Jersey Cash 5 draw on Friday, July 2. The jackpot was then over $ 841,000, which means that each winner takes home just over $ 280,000. These winning numbers were 02, 09, 11, 23 and 27 and the XTRA number was 02. One of the winning tickets was sold at the Singin gas station and mini market on Lakewood Road in Toms River. The other two were purchased at a Wawa store in Lodi and a Wegman’s store in Parsippany.
These most recent winners maintain what appears to be a streak of winning tickets sold in grocery stores. Just last week, a winning $ 50,000 Powerball ticket was sold at Mia’s Bodega on Ventnor Avenue in Atlantic City.
