NJ lottery players in 2024 have won big payouts so far

If it seems like lottery players in New Jersey are winning big money this year, you're not wrong.

New Jersey already had 13 new millionaires and one billionaire in the first three months of 2024, the New Jersey Lottery announced Thursday.

The biggest win so far this year is still to come.

On March 26, a Jersey Shore lottery player won a $1.13 billion Mega Millions jackpot. The ticket was purchased at ShopRite Liquor on Route 66 in Neptune. It is the largest jackpot win ever in New Jersey, surpassing the $533 million won in the 2018 Mega Millions.

In total, 250 lottery players won $10,000 or more, and 50 of them won prizes worth at least $100,000 in NJ Lottery drawing and scratch-off games and multi-state lottery drawings such as Mega Millions and Powerball from Jan. 1 to March 31 .
