Carole Hedinger, New Jersey Lottery executive director, announced that there were no Mega Millions game jackpot or second-tier New Jersey prizewinners.
The winning numbers for the Friday, July 21 drawing were: 18, 31, 36, 50 and 74. The Gold Mega Ball was 10, and the Megaplier Multiplier was 04.
There were four third-tier prizewinning tickets sold that matched four of the five white balls and the Gold Mega Ball drawn winning the $5,000 prize.
Those tickets were purchased at the following locations:
• Burlington County: Rite Aid #10459, 2604 Rte. 130 N., Cinnaminson;

• Middlesex County: Rite Aid #4193, 3553 Washington Rd., Parlin.
If those tickets had been purchased with the Megaplier option, it would have multiplied the prizes to $20,000.
