The third prize-winning ticket purchased with the Megaplier option turned a $5,000 prize into a $25,000 prize. That ticket was purchased in Essex County at Crown Liquor, 246 Main St., Orange. The other $5000 third prizewinning ticket was purchased in Union County at 7-Eleven #2412-39461, 2515 Rt. 22 West, Union.
