What would you do with nearly two million dollars? Honestly, that isn't "eff you money", because, unless you're pretty old, two million won't be enough to retire on. You could pay off your house, do those renovations you've been wanting to, buy a nice new car, splurge on some fun big-boy toys like a motorcycle or a boat or something you've always wanted. It's fun to dream, and for one person in Toms River, the dream is becoming a reality!

The New Jersey Lottery's Cash 5 game had one single winner last Friday, September 4th, and that person will claim a jackpot worth $1,753,211. The winning ticket was purchased at the Silverton Pharmacy on Hooper Avenue in Toms River.

If you bought a ticket at the Silverton Pharmacy on the 4th, or maybe a couple days before, now would be a good time to check to see if you have the following numbers:

05, 22, 26, 28, 43 - XTRA Number 03

It was back in June that the New Jersey Lottery announced they would be pumping up the prizes for the Jersey Cash 5 game, and over the past few weeks we've seen evidence of the 33% increase. Since the beginning of August, THREE million dollar Jersey Cash 5 tickets have been sold. On August 7th, there was a jackpot of $1,669,143; on August 21st, a record-high jackpot of $1,813,783; the September 4th jackpot was the second-highest ever.

If those numbers above match your ticket, the first thing you need to do is sign the back of your ticket. Then you'll probably want to find a lawyer or financial advisor, then get all the rest of the info you need HERE.
