  MANCHESTER – The good news is you won the lottery. The bad news is it wasn’t the million dollar prize.

  Still, $10,000 can change a lot of things in the life of one lucky winner. The ticket was sold at Country Farm, 550 Route 530, in Whiting. It was for the Tuesday, January 5 Mega Millions drawing.

  This was the third tier prize. Ticketholders matched four of the five white balls and the gold ball. Other winning tickets were sold out of Lake Hopatcong and Raritan.

  The second tier prize was a cool million. This one was sold at Masso’s Deli & Pizzeria, 11 Lakeview Dr. North, Gibbsboro in Camden County. This one matched five of the five white balls drawn.

  The $490 million jackpot drawing will be held on Friday, January 8. If won, it would be the 8th-largest jackpot in the game’s history. The estimated cash value is $372.3 million.
