Was it you?
One lucky New Jersey Lottery player at the shore just won over $212,000.
Officials with the lottery said one ticket matched all five numbers drawn this past Saturday night, October 21st, for Jersey Cash 5.
The jackpot? $212,600.
That's a lot of candy corn.
Yes, we did the math. That would be about 80,200 bags of one of the most hated Halloween treats.
The winning numbers were 02, 05, 16, 21 and 31 and the XTRA number was 03.
The winning ticket was sold at Stop & Shop on Bridge Ave. in Point Pleasant, Ocean County.
For their efforts, the store will receive a bonus check for $2,000.
New Jersey Lottery Executive Director James Carey said in a press release,
Congratulations to our very fortunate Jersey Cash 5 winner! We hope this incredible prize brings joy and happiness to the winner; we’re already looking forward to awarding another jackpot prize!
