Unclaimed $1.13 Billion Mega Millions Jackpot in New Jersey: Winner Still Not Identified

The Mystery of the Unclaimed $1.13 Billion Mega Millions Jackpot

In a twist that has left lottery officials and curious onlookers scratching their heads, the winner of a record-breaking $1.13 billion Mega Millions jackpot in New Jersey has yet to come forward and claim their prize.

The ticket, purchased at a ShopRite Liquor store in Monmouth County back in March, remains unclaimed despite months passing since the draw. The cash value of the jackpot is a staggering $537.5 million, making it the fifth largest prize in Mega Millions history.

The winning numbers were 7, 11, 22, 29, 38, with the gold Mega ball being 4. The jackpot had grown to over a billion dollars after 31 consecutive drawings without a winner.

The ShopRite Liquor store, where the lucky ticket was purchased, received a $30,000 prize for selling the winning ticket. However, the elusive winner has yet to step forward to claim their life-changing prize.

As the mystery deepens, New Jersey Lottery officials urge the winner to sign the ticket, make copies, contact professional and financial advisors, and ultimately file a claim with them.

While Garden State winners are allowed to remain anonymous, those who win more than $600 must provide their identity to lottery officials for claim verification. This process helps review the winner’s eligibility and any outstanding financial obligations they might have.

As the hunt for the missing millionaire continues, the spotlight remains on the unclaimed $1.13 billion jackpot, waiting for its rightful owner to come forward and change their life forever.
