There were two lucky Mega Millions players in New Jersey.
The third-tier prizewinning tickets combined to win $30,000, state Lottery officials said.
Both winners from Tuesday's drawing matched four of the five white balls and the Gold Mega Ball to win the $10,000 prize. One of those tickets was purchased with the Megaplier option, multiplying the prize to $20,000.
The winning numbers for the Dec. 7, drawing were: 01, 07, 40, 43, and 68. The Gold Mega Ball was 01, and the Megaplier Multiplier was 02.

- Atlantic County ($10,000): Buena Gas & Mart, 104 S. Harding Highway in Landisville.
