A lucky New Jersey lottery player purchased a ticket worth an astounding $7,300,000, according to lottery authorities on Friday.
The jackpot-winning Pick-6 ticket for Thursday’s drawing was purchased at Soda King on Gordon Corner Road in Manalapan. The merchant will receive a bonus of $10,000 for selling the winning ticket, which delighted Soda King owner Dilip Shah.
“We were already in a fortunate location,” added Shah. “We previously sold a $1,000,000 Powerball ticket, but this is even more unbelievable!”
The winning numbers for the drawing held on February 16 were 03, 07, 17, 18, 26 and 42. The jackpot will reset to $2,000,000 for the drawing on February 20.
