TRENTON- Paula Castro of Paterson in Passaic County is a long-time New Jersey Lottery player.

Paula and her husband often play their favorite Lottery games together, she is a big fan of the draw games while her husband prefers Scratch-Off tickets.

While shopping at her local grocery store, she picked up her usual Jersey Cash 5 Quick Picks for the June 20 drawing.

She opted for just three Quick Picks on a single ticket, a $3 purchase that would be worth $342,957 before the end of the night!
