There were no Mega Millions game jackpot or second-tier New Jersey Lottery prize winners in the Tuesday, Jan. 9 drawing, when winning numbers were: 16, 29, 31, 65 and 67. The Gold Mega Ball was 23, and the Megaplier Multiplier was 03.
There was one third-tier prize winning ticket sold that matched four of the five white balls and the Gold Mega Ball drawn winning the $10,000 prize. That ticket was purchased at Quick Chek #93, 822 Broadway #828, Bayonne in Hudson County.
In addition, 15 other players matched four of the five white balls drawn making each ticket worth $500. If those tickets had been purchased with the Megaplier option, it would have multiplied the prize to $1,500. Moreover, 20,526 other New Jersey players took home $87,050 in prizes ranging from $2 to $600, according to White.
“Congratulations to the lottery winners and to the retailers that sold the winning tickets,” said John M. White, acing director. “For selling the winning tickets, the retailers have become many more Lottery ‘lucky locations’ overnight.”
The next drawing will be held Friday, Jan. 12 at 11:00 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.
