A winning streak for New Jersey - a second Mega Millions win occurs!
29th July 2020 2:14 PM
Another win goes to a very fortunate New Jerseyan; this time with a sum of $124 million.
New Jersey saw another winning individual for the second consecutive time this year - winning an eye-popping $124 million jackpot (approx. $100.8 million cash)! Just last February, a very lucky person, also from New Jersey, had won a $202 million prize.
The jackpot numbers were as follows for the Friday, July 24, 2020 drawing:
Main Numbers: 08, 33, 39, 54, and 58 - Mega Ball: 17 - Megaplier: 3x
The winning ticket was sold at Brenda’s Inc. on 110 Kennedy Boulevard in Bayonne, Hudson County. Due to this, a bonus commission check which is worth $30,000 will be received by the shop.
The jackpot can be claimed within a year by the very lucky winner, and due to a bill signed earlier this exact year by Gov. Phil Murphy, winners will now be allowed to stay anonymous - therefore this means that we might never know who this individual really is.
New Jersey Lottery Executive Director James A Carey, Jr. said how their 50th anniversary year has brought them a pot of gold, as this year, as a state, they’ve held a list of gigantic victories. This includes the $202 million Mega Millions jackpot won last February, the $190 million Powerball jackpot won in April, the Cash4Life’s $1,000 dollars a day for a lifetime was won earlier this month, and now this latest Mega Millions win of $124 million. They’re looking forward to seeing what else this year will bring them.
Most recent Mega Millions lottery results
Last Tuesday 28th July’s prize was at the $20 million mark (approx. $16.2 million in cash).
The draw’s winning numbers were as follows:
Main Numbers: 17, 20, 27, 31 & 34 - Mega Ball: 19 - Megaplier: 4x
However, this draw saw no giant winners, therefore the jackpot rolls over to this Friday’s draw. It did see two lucky winners snatching the second prize, by managing to match the 5 main numbers, and taking home the $1 million reward! Their tickets didn’t include the megaplier which was 4x - had they had it included in their ticket, they would’ve gone home with an attractive $4 million jackpot.
