  HOWELL – If you purchased a jackpot-winning Jersey Cash 5 ticket last Saturday at the township’s County Farm Food Store on Route 524, you could be $345,000 richer.

  That’s where the ticket winner of Saturday’s lottery drawing was bought and the winning numbers were: 8,12,20,40 and 41. The XTRA number was 2.

  Nobody won Sunday’s $75,000 jackpot which pushed the top prize for the June 1 lottery to around $131,000.

  For those wondering, the chances of a dollar ticket matching all the needed five numbers have been estimated at 962,598 to one. Those who bought a ticket at that Monmouth County convenience store on May 30 may wish to check their ticket numbers.
