There is a New Jersey Lottery "half-millionaire," minus taxes, of course, on the Jersey Shore.
One very lucky Jersey Cash 5 player in Middlesex County matched all five numbers in Thursday night's drawing.
The payout? A wopping $488,706.
Thursday's winning numbers were: 08, 14, 16, 22, and 36 and the XTRA number was: 02.
The equally lucky retailer will receive a bonus check for $2,000 for the winning ticket sold.
The winning ticket was sold at David’s Stationery at 112 Sampton Ave. in South Plainfield. (Middlesex County)
