$50K Mega Millions Ticket Sold in Bergen County

No one won the Christmas Day prize of $321 million.

"Congratulations to all of the lottery players who purchased winning tickets and to the retailers that sold them", said Carey.

The victor of October's life-changing prize has until April 21 to claim their winnings. That victor has still not stepped forward. One theory was that the victor was no longer in SC.

That ticket was purchased at 7-Eleven #39162, 19 Franklin Turnpike, Mahwah in Bergen County.

Many commenters gushed over how cute North looked in her Prada outfit and full glam, writing, "North for the win!" and "North straight slayinngggggg".

When the victor receives the payout will determine the year the tax has to be paid.

A victor who claims their ticket in 2018 would have to pay tax on the winnings by April 15, 2019. Taxes for monies claimed in 2018 will have to be paid in April, whereas taxes for funds collected in 2019 will not be paid until April 2020. "That could be a difference of millions of dollars". Friday's Mega Millions jackpot is $348 million and climbing. The winning numbers were 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 and Mega Ball 5. Power Play doubles the second prize from one million dollars to two million dollars and multiplies all of the seven lower prize sets available in the game by the number drawn that evening. A person in Missouri won $1 million after matching the first five numbers and another person in CT won $3 million for matching the first five numbers as well as the 3x megaplier. The six states that do not participate in the Mega Millions drawings are Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Mississippi, Nevada and Utah.

New Jersey Lottery Acting Executive Director James Carey announced that a New York Lottery ticketholder won the $298.3 million Powerball jackpot from the Wednesday, Dec. 26th drawing. No one has claimed the October 23 jackpot for $1.5 billion won in SC.
