$5 Million lottery ticket sold in Union County

Clark, NJ – One lucky New Jersey player won $5 million and three other NJ players, won $5,000 from the $5,000,000 Fortune instant lottery game.

Michael is the first person to win $5 million, the largest prize offered, on a New Jersey Lottery instant ticket, a reality he said hasn’t quite sunk in yet.
Lottery officials presented Michael with an oversized check representing his winnings, the top prize on the new $5,000,000 Fortune scratch ticket game.
