What's the best way to not have to worry about shoveling snow?

If you won $1.75 million playing the New Jersey Lottery, I'm pretty sure you could hire the kid up the street to clear your driveway for the next few years (assuming you can find a kid who wants to work these days).

For one person in the Garden State, that is a very real possibility after they won $1,754,700 playing Jersey Cash 5 this past weekend.

One lucky ticket matched all five numbers drawn on Saturday, January 13th, according to officials with the New Jersey Lottery.

The winning numbers were 13, 17, 25, 33, and 42 and the XTRA number was 02.

Where Was it Sold?

This winning ticket was not sold at a brick-and-mortar store but through the Jackpocket app/online service.

That company will receive a $2,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

New Jersey Lottery Executive Director James Carey said in a statement,

Congratulations to our very fortunate Jersey Cash 5 winner! We hope this incredible prize brings joy and happiness to the winner; we’re already looking forward to awarding another jackpot prize!
