$1 million Mega Millions lottery ticket bought in New Jersey

Mega Millions Jackpot

A winning Mega Millions lottery ticket was sold in New Jersey on Friday.

The gloomy and gray weather will continue for the first parts of the weekend, but Meteorologist Joe Martucci says you'll remember this weekend for the sunny, warm air. Coastal flooding will be likely at times, too.

A $1 million Mega Millions lottery ticket was sold Friday in New Jersey ahead of that night’s drawing, lottery officials said Saturday.

The ticket matched five of the numbers except the Mega Ball. Friday’s winning numbers were 17, 32, 40, 59 and 61. The Mega Ball was 18, with a Megaplier of 3X.

The next drawing, which is scheduled for Tuesday, has a jackpot of $432 million with a $312 million cash option.

Officials are expected to reveal where in the state the ticket was purchased this week.
