Lottery tickets worth nearly $1B sold 150 miles apart

April 02, 2018 - 11:46 AM

TRENTON, N.J. - Two lottery prizes together worth almost a billion dollars and sold just 150 miles apart are still waiting to be claimed.

The winning ticket for Friday's $521 million Mega Millions drawing was sold at a Lukoil station in Riverdale, New Jersey. Its estimated cash value is $324.6 million.

Two weeks earlier, the winning ticket for the March 17 Powerball jackpot worth almost $457 million was sold at a Speedway convenience store in Manheim, Pennsylvania. Its estimated cash value is $273.9 million.

The tickets were the sole winners for their respective drawings

The sites that sold the tickets are also reaping a benefit. The owner of the Lukoil received a $30,000 bonus check Monday from the New Jersey Lottery. The Pennsylvania store earned a $100,000 bonus.
