WEST ORANGE, NJ — Although there were no Mega Millions game jackpot or second-tier New Jersey prizewinners last week, Carole Hedinger, New Jersey Lottery executive director, announced that one of three third-tier prizewinning tickets was sold at B & B Liquors of West Orange.
The winning numbers for the Tuesday, Jan. 3 drawing were: 14, 16, 23, 49 and 53. The Gold Mega Ball was 12, and the Megaplier Multiplier was 02. The prizewinning ticket sold that sold at B & B Liquors, located at 7 Northfield Avenue, matched four of the five white balls and the Gold Mega Ball drawn, winning the $5,000 prize.
According to Hedinger, if those tickets had been purchased with the Megaplier option, it would have multiplied the prize to $10,000.
“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 other two tickets were sold in Monmouth County at Mart in Howell and Ocean County at WaWa on Route 70 in Whiting.
