NEW JERSEY – Two $1 million tickets were sold in New Jersey on Tuesday now that the Mega Millions jackpot is nearing $1 billion.

Tuesday night’s Mega Millions drawing again produced millions of winning tickets, but not one that matched all six numbers – the white balls 10, 19, 26, 28 and 50, plus the gold Mega Ball 16.

As a result, Friday’s jackpot will be an estimated $970 million, or $716.3 million cash, the second-largest prize in the game’s history.

One of the two $1 million tickets in New Jersey was sold in Somerset County on Tuesday in the Mega Millions lottery.

The ticket was sold at Lucky Spot Convenience Store at 100 North Gaston Ave. in Somerville. The other at 7-Eleven in Atlantic City.

Ticket-holders must match the five white balls to win the game’s $1 million second prize.

Additionally, there were eight third-tier prizewinning tickets sold that matched four of the five white balls and the gold ball-winning $10,000. One of those tickets was purchased with the Megaplier option, multiplying the prize to $20,000.

Those tickets were purchased at the following locations:

Mega Millions, Powerball lottery jackpots soar to nearly $1.6B combined for next drawings

The combined value of this week’s massive Mega Millions and Powerball multi-state lottery jackpots is nearly $1.6 billion.

The Mega Millions drawing Tuesday night is worth an estimated $865 million as 1 p.m., making it potentially the third-largest payout in U.S. lottery history. The cash option is worth $628.2 million.

The Powerball jackpot Wednesday night is worth an estimated $730 million with a cash option of an estimated $546 million. If someone doesn’t win the Mega drawing but the Powerball jackpot is hit, it would be the fifth-largest in U.S. lottery history.
