This Mega Millions hype is getting very serious -- especially here at the Jersey Shore.

This past Mega Millions jackpot reached a whopping $1 billion dollars -- but unfortunately nobody won it.

However, one lucky soul who purchased their lottery ticket at the Stop & Shop in Manchester matched five numbers (not including the power ball) which would make that ticket worth $1,000,000!

The winning numbers were 16, 54, 57, 62, 69, Powerball: 23 Power Play: 2.

So Jersey Shore residents, check those numbers and pull out a big W for the shore!

But it also may be worth your while to purchase more Mega Million tickets because the jackpot is up to $1.6 billion dollars.

That would be a nice take home, don't you think?
