One lucky person in New Jersey can claim the Mega Millions jackpot. A winning ticket was sold at a Shoprite grocery store in Neptune Township for the Mega Millions jackpot of $1.3 billion, the eighth largest prize in U.S. lottery history. The winner has not come forward yet, but New Jersey Lottery Executive Director James Carey has some advice for them. "If you are the winner, I encourage you to sign the back of the ticket. Take a picture of it. Make a copy of it and put it in a safe place. Tell only your closest loved ones that you are the lucky winner and then I would urge to you go out and talk to a lawyer and maybe a financial advisor," Carey said. The winning numbers from Tuesday's drawing were 7-11-22-29-38, and the gold Mega Ball number was 4.

He says the MTA's actions are further proof that they are determined to violate the law in-order-to balance their budget on the backs of New Jersey commuters.
