Tuesday night's Mega Millions $1.1 annuity jackpot will be the fifth largest ever offered by an American lottery.
No one has won the Mega Millions jackpot by matching all five white ball numbers and the gold ball since Oct. 14. The cash value of the jackpot is $568.7 million.
A ticket worth $1 million for matching just the white balls was sold for the last drawing on Saturday at the In & Out Deli on Route 46 in the Ledgewood section of Roxbury Township.
Small winners but not the jackpot
There were also three third-tier prizewinning tickets sold for the Friday drawing that matched four of the five white balls and the Gold Mega Ball, winning the $10,000 prize. One of those tickets was purchased with the Megaplier option, multiplying the prize to $30,000.
Those tickets were sold in Haskell, New Milford and via the Jackpocket app.
Last year, New Jersey had no top prizes in either the Powerball or Mega Millions games.
The odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot is 1 in 302.6 million.
As of 2023, there are at least a dozen full-time mayors around New Jersey making six-figure salaries for their positions.
Newark, Woodbridge and Elizabeth have helped lead the pack. Jersey City, Paterson, Edison and Wayne more recently adjusted their pay for the elected post.
LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving
To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.
