New Jersey LotteryNew Jersey Lottery: One ticket wins historic Jersey Cash 5 jackpotRating:

Second-largest Jersey Cash 5 jackpot in game history

TRENTON, N.J. — One winning Jersey Cash 5 ticket worth $1,930,747 was sold in Middlesex County, New Jersey, for the Monday, April 22 drawing.

The Middlesex County winning ticket was bought at In & Out Convenience Store, 187 North Avenue, Dunellen. This is the second largest jackpot in the game's history.

Jersey Cash 5 was introduced to New Jersey players back in September 1992 and remains a very popular player favorite.  The largest Jersey Cash 5 jackpot was $1,964,441 which was hit on October 23, 2007.  The third-largest jackpot was $1,594,280, which was hit on May 27, 2011.

New Jersey Lottery Executive Director Carole Hedinger said the winning ticket was the only one sold for Monday's drawing that matched all five numbers drawn. The winning numbers were: 02, 18, 29, 31 and 38.

Store owner Devendra Kapadia said, "We have no idea who the lucky person is but we are very happy and glad for them."

"We are thrilled that the winning jackpot ticket was sold at In & Out Convenience Store," said Hedinger. "For selling this ticket, they will receive a bonus check for $750. Overnight, they have become one more 'lucky location' for the very fortunate lottery winner."

Hedinger also noted that 16,106 other players won $443,102 in cash prizes in the Monday drawing. For correctly picking four numbers, 430 players won cash prizes of $593.00 each and for correctly matching three numbers, 15,676 players won $12.00 each.

    Jersey Cash 5 is a great game — one of the perfect in-state games among all states.  Nearly $2 million from a Pick 5 game!

      $1.9M cash is good bread. 

      I play our Cash5 a lot more than I play PB & MM but so far I have nothing to show for it. I know one day I will have the last laugh or should I say "my first laugh"? Big Grin

      That money's gone fo ever

          It's pretty much the only game I play - when it's at 1 million plus it's a pretty good bet.

            I won $11,if only I had two more numbers

            All I ask is the chance to prove that money can't make me happy.

                Congratulations to the winner! I wonder how the winner will spend such huge amount of prize. If I win this prize I will purchase a house and lot first. :)
