  MONMOUTH COUNTY – There’s a new multi-millionaire in town! One lucky ticket matched all six numbers drawn for the Pick-6 with Double Play drawing claiming the $7.3 million annuity jackpot.

  The winning ticket was sold at Soda King, located at 300 Gordons Corner Road in Manalapan, who will also receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

  The winning numbers for the February 16 drawing were: 03, 07, 17, 18, 26 and 42.

  “We are always excited when Pick-6 finds a new jackpot winner,” New Jersey Lottery Executive Director James Carey said. “$7.3 million is an incredible prize and we cannot wait to meet our newest winner. Pick-6 is a core New Jersey Lottery game since 1980 and is one of the biggest jackpots available exclusively to our Garden State players. Don’t forget to sign the back of your ticket!”

   The owner of Soda King, Dilip Shah, was thrilled to have sold this multi-million-dollar ticket.

  “We were already a lucky location, we sold a $1,000,000 Powerball ticket before, but now this is even more incredible,” Shah said.

  The jackpot now resets to $2 million for the next drawing that will be held on February 20.
