First Two Super 50 Scratch-Off “Golden Tickets” Found
Two Jackpot Super 50 Tickets Found in Mercer and Bergen Counties – Three Remain
TRENTON (March 12, 2020) – A Mercer County business-owner showcased his great streak of luck when trying the new Super 50 Scratch-Off ticket, the Lottery’s biggest ticket ever. This lucky winner stopped by a local food market and asked for five of the new Super 50 tickets. After receiving his towering five-foot-tall set of tickets, he scratched through the record-sized game one ticket at a time.
The first four tickets were lucky enough, netting him three prizes for a few hundred dollars. The final ticket, however, is where his luck truly came through. Our winner from Mercer County found the first Super 50 jackpot ticket, winning $500,000! He could not believe the news and took a few days to decide what to do with his prize. He says the money will be used to invest in his business and pay off his home.
Later that same day, a teacher from New York stopped in a Garfield liquor store while visiting a friend and couldn’t help but notice the over-sized ticket displayed on the counter and decided to give it a try. He quickly scratched the ticket and passed the barcode under the scanner. When the scanner said it was a winner, he didn’t believe it and handed the ticket to the clerk to double-check. The clerk gave him the good news—he just won $500,000!
This teacher was already looking ahead to retire in the next few years, and he says this prize will help greatly with his retirement. Once he is retired, he plans to spend more time with his father, who lives abroad.
The Super 50 ticket only launched a few days earlier on Monday, March 2, and these players found the first two of the five jackpot-winning tickets by the end of that week! At the time of this release, three $500,000 jackpot-winning Super 50 tickets are still up-for-grabs. The lucky tickets were purchased at Paketeria Food Market on 225 South Olden Ave. in Trenton, Mercer County; and Worldwide Liquors on 68 Van Wrinkle Ave., Garfield, Bergen County.
