Mega Millions victor is New Jersey food production manager

Mega Millions victor is New Jersey food production manager

Forty-seven-year-old Richard Wahl, of Vernon, New Jersey, was introduced Friday during a news conference at lottery headquarters after winning the half-billion March Mega Millions drawing, the largest single jackpot in state history.

"For us, we believe God has a plan", Walh said. It may have been only the second time he bought a ticket. "We're going to try to do some good things with that". "Family, friends, people in need", he said, NorthJersey.com reported.

Richard Wahl, 47, who recently moved from MI to Vernon, N.J., had the five winning numbers and the Mega Ball in the March 30 lottery on a ticket he purchased at a gas station.

"We're a humble family and we're going to keep our roots", Wahl said at a news conference, adding that they plan to give a lot to charity and help extended family members pay bills. "And I wasn't ready to share with her yet, so I told her, 'Absolutely not, mother'".

Wahl told reporters he checked the numbers on the ticket with his wife more than a dozen times as they tried to come to terms with the fact that they were New Jersey's newest multimillionaires.




He said he's not regular lottery player, but made a decision to play after talking to a coworker about how they'd retire if they won.

His winning numbers were 11,28,31, 46 and 59, and the Mega Ball 1.

So how does Wahl plan to spend the multi-million dollar prize?

The owner of the Lukoil gas station where Wahl bought the ticket from received $30,000 for selling the winning ticket, according to lottery officials. In particular, he is thinking of his mother, who lives on a reduced income, and the family of his wife, in Mexico. Wahl's win was the fourth-biggest in the game's history.
