Lottery players in Camden and Burlington counties have hit big jackpots in recent drawings, while an Atlantic County man has claimed a Mega Millions prize.
A ticket sold at a Camden County gas station won the top prize in a recent Cash4Life drawing: $1,000 per day for life.
The ticket matched all five white balls (5, 19, 36, 41 and 55) and the cash ball of 2 in Thursday's drawing, New Jersey Lottery officials said.
The winner was sold at the Winslow Citgo, located at 172 Route 73 in Braddock.
The top prize has a cash value of $7 million, according to the game's website.
The Cash4Life game is played in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, Tennessee and Virginia.
That big win was followed a few days later by $4.3 million Pick-6 jackpot hit in Burlington County.
Lottery officials said a ticket sold at the Rite Aid at 1147 Cooper St. in Edgewater Park matched the six numbers drawn Monday (21, 28, 32, 33, 41 and 45) to win the top prize.
The drug store gets a $10,000 bonus for selling the ticket.
Meanwhile, a South Jersey man has claimed his $1 million Mega Millions prize from a drawing last month.
Lottery officials said 62-year-old Ramon Rosario, of Pleasantville, matched all five white balls in the Nov. 27 drawing.
Rosario bought the winning ticket at the City 99 Cents Market in Atlantic City.
The casino kitchen worker plans to use his winnings to pay off loans and retire earlier than expected, he told lottery officials.
