A ticket sold at the Princeton Avenue Deli & Dairy, 300 Princeton Avenue, Brick, was worth $20,000. That ticket matched four of the five white balls drawn, winning the $10,000 third-tier prize, but included a “multiplier” that doubled the award.

A ticket worth $10,000 was sold at the ShopRite store at 2 Route 37 West, Toms River, the location near the Garden State Parkway entrance.

The winning numbers for the Tuesday, March 26, drawing were: 07, 11, 22, 29 and 38. The Gold MegaBall number was 04. The Multiplier number was 02.

As to who won the billion-dollar jackpot – ultimately it will be up to the winner to reveal themselves or not.

A 2020 New Jersey law allows lottery winners to remain anonymous indefinitely, and the identity of winners are exempt from the state’s Open Public Records Act. Players claiming Lottery prizes worth $600 or more must still provide their identity to Lottery officials in order to claim a prize.
