Carole Hedinger, New Jersey Lottery executive director, announced that there were no Mega Millions game jackpot or second-tier New Jersey prizewinners, but there was one third-tier prizewinning ticket sold that matched four of the five white balls and the Gold Mega Ball drawn winning the $5,000 prize.
That ticket was purchased at Acme #7956, 515 Berlin-Cross Keys Rd., Sicklerville in Camden County. If that ticket had been purchased with the Megaplier option, it would have multiplied the prize to $15,000.
The winning numbers for the Tuesday, July 25 drawing were: 02, 05, 26, 58 and 60. The Gold Mega Ball was 06, and the Megaplier Multiplier was 03.
In addition, 37 other players matched four of the five white balls drawn making each ticket worth $500. Four of those tickets were purchased with the Megaplier option, multiplying the prize to $1,500.
Moreover, 129,991 other New Jersey players took home $226,386 in prizes ranging from $1 to $150, according to Hedinger.
“Congratulations to the lottery winners and to the retailers that sold the winning tickets,” said Hedinger. “For selling the winning tickets, the retailers have become many more Lottery ‘lucky locations’ overnight.”
The next drawing will be held Friday, July 28 at 11:00 pm. All New Jersey Lottery Mega Millions tickets must be purchased before 10:45 pm to participate in the drawing.
