Jersey Shore Shopper Strikes Gold with $1.9 Million Lottery Win

A casual stop at a ShopRite store on Route 35 in Belmar, Monmouth County, New Jersey, turned into a life-changing event for one lucky shopper. After purchasing a lottery ticket, the shopper walked away with a staggering $1.9 million jackpot from the Jersey Cash 5 game. This remarkable win occurred over the bustling 4th of July weekend, making the holiday one to remember.

The New Jersey Lottery confirmed that the winning ticket matched all five numbers drawn on Friday, July 5th. The numbers that transformed the winner’s life were 09, 19, 21, 38, and 40, with an XTRA number of 05 and a Bullseye number of 40. For selling the golden ticket, the ShopRite store will be rewarded with a $2,000 bonus.

In an interesting twist, lottery officials also highlighted that the massive $1.13 billion Mega Millions jackpot from March 26th, also sold at a ShopRite in Neptune, has yet to be claimed. This intriguing detail adds another layer of mystery and excitement around lottery wins in the area.

Lottery winners are advised to take cautious steps before claiming such large prizes. The New Jersey Lottery recommends signing the winning ticket, making copies, consulting with legal and financial experts, and then proceeding to claim their fortunes. Winners have the privilege of remaining anonymous, ensuring their privacy in the Garden State.
