I would say I buy a scratch off ticket maybe once every two weeks. Sometimes I'll randomly be in QuickCheck grabbing a late night snack and then BOOM, I get a flash thought of me possibly winning big money. I usually keep it simple and get one $2 scratch off ticket but I'm never lucky. However, like many of us, I enjoy having that thirty seconds of hope. Like they say, "You can't win if you don't play."

Maybe one of these days I can win $57,000 like someone just did in Eatontown! The total amount was $57,094 and the Fast Play Progressive ticket was purchased for $10. The winner matched the winning jackpot number on the ticket. The ticket was sold at Eatontown Wines & Liquors located at 66 Highway 36. A huge congratulations to the winner!

Earlier this year, a $202 million Mega Millions ticket was purchased in Edison, New Jersey. The states largest lottery winner was Richard Wahl of Vernon, New Jersey. He won the $533 Mega Millions jackpot on March 30th, 2018. INSANE! CAN YOU IMAGINE?! Anyway... I hope that can be you one day.
