A winning lottery ticket was purchased at a Pathmark in Middlesex County.
Carole Hedinger, New Jersey Lottery Executive Director, announced that there were no jackpot or second prize New Jersey winners of the Mega Millions game, but there were four third prize winners for the Friday, February 28 drawing.
According to NJ Lottery:
One of those third prize winning tickets was purchased with the Megaplier option, making the ticket worth $20,000. That ticket was bought in Pathmark of Woodbridge #580, 1600 St. George Ave., Avenel in Middlesex County.
