Friday’s $273 Million Mega Millions Jackpot Won in New Jersey


The only winning ticket for Friday night’s Mega Millions drawing was sold in New Jersey, Acting New Jersey Lottery Executive Director James A Carey, Jr. announced this morning.

“We are thrilled that the winning ticket was sold in Warren County. I’m happy to congratulate Quick Check #69 of 600 New Brunswick Ave. in Phillipsburg, the retailer that sold this winning ticket,” Carey said.

The winning numbers are: 29, 33, 39, 60, and 66.

The Gold Mega Ball is 21 and the Megaplier is 2.

The jackpot winner will receive an estimated prize of $267,000,000 annuity ($159,000,000 cash).

The winner has one year from the date of the drawing to file a claim.

The Mega Millions jackpot resets to $40,000,000 for the next drawing to be held Tuesday, March 5 at 10:59 pm. All New Jersey Lottery Mega Millions tickets must be purchased before 10:45 pm to participate in the drawing.

Mega Millions tickets cost just two dollars; by adding the Megaplier option for an extra dollar per play, players can increase their non-jackpot winnings up to five times. Mega Millions tickets are sold in 46 participating jurisdictions. Drawings are held on Tuesdays and Fridays.
