Mega Millions victor announced at news conference

Winner Of $533 Million Mega Millions Jackpot To Claim Prize

New Jersey lottery officials on Friday revealed the victor of a $533 million Mega Millions jackpot.

The winning ticket was sold at the Lukoil South gas station on Route 23 in Riverdale on March 30.

It's the fourth largest jackpot in the game's history and the second highest for a single ticket.

He wouldn't disclose what city in MI, but he's a native to the mitten who was just moved to New Jersey in July for his work. If he could have stayed private, he would have, Wahl said, but New Jersey doesn't allow that. I walked upstairs. I saw my wife ... and said, 'Baby, we get to go on vacation.' She said, 'What are you talking about?

"We're a humble family and we're going to keep our roots", Wahl said at a news conference, adding that they plan to give a lot to charity and help extended family members pay bills.


"For us we believe God has a plan.it's not only life-changing money for me, we want it to be life-changing money for others".

He said he's not a regular lottery player, but made a decision to play after talking to a coworker about how they'd retire if they won. He just selected easy pick and the numbers were completely random.

Officials have since presented a check for $30,000 to the owner of the Lukoil for selling the winning ticket. He said he was getting on a flight Friday night, but wouldn't say where he was going.

The lump-sum option totaled $324.6 million, but after 24 percent in federal taxes and 8 percent for the state, Wahl is taking $220.7 million home, according to acting lottery executive director John White. "Everybody's going to come after him".

New Jersey was the seventh state to join the consortium nearly three years after the game began in the summer of 1996 as the Big Game.
