A winning Jersey Cash 5 ticket worth more than $614,000 was purchased at Bayonne liquor store, New Jersey Lottery officials announced.
The one ticket out of 659,716 purchased that matched the winning numbers in Wednesday’s drawing — 04, 08, 26, 33 and 35 — was sold at Massarelli Liquors at 403 Broadway.
Massarelli’s will be a $2,000 bonus check for selling the jackpot ticket, officials said. D.M. Patel, one of the owners, said the store sold a lottery ticket worth roughly $200,000 about 15 years ago.
“It’s good because it brings the people inside,” he said.
