A Mega Millions ticket costs $2.

The winning ticket matched all six numbers plus the gold Mega Ball in Friday night's drawing to win the estimated prize of $521 million, which comes out to $317 million in cash. The March 30 prize is the fourth-largest jackpot in Mega Millions history.

Local business owners, that sell lottery tickets, say they've seen more traffic coming through their stores than usual due to the large jackpot.

No one has won the jackpot in two months. Five balls are drawn from a set of balls numbered 1 through 70; the Mega ball is drawn from a set of balls numbered 1 through 25.

News of the lucky player was posted on the Mega Millions website.

Donald Trump defends Second Amendment, says it will never be repealed
By giving only cursory treatment to a drastic proposal, the New York Times does a disservice to gun safety advocates everywhere. It is also important to recognize that, as a matter of law, the Second Amendment is perfectly consistent with gun regulation.

Nash Riad, the station's manager, told The Associated Press that he doesn't know their identity and no one has yet to come forward.

The lottery agency has yet to disclose where the ticket was sold. The area is in the northeastern part of the state, about 30 miles outside of New York City.

If no winning ticket has been sold, the jackpot will once more roll over into next week, at that point likely becoming the third-largest jackpot ever.

The jackpot will now be reset to its starting value of $40 million (£28.5 million) for the next draw on Tuesday. The victor was able to file a lawsuit and stay anonymous while claiming the winnings through an anonymous trust even though they had originally signed their winning ticket with their name. Messages for the New Jersey Lottery have not yet been returned.
