Someone in NJ hit the Mega Millions jackpot!

One of the two winning tickets for Tuesday night's $77 million Mega Millions jackpot was sold in northern New Jersey. Lottery officials say the ticket was bought at the Buyrite Supermarket on Magie Avenue in Union. The store will get a $10,000 bonus for selling the ticket.

The holder of that ticket - along with the other winning ticket bought in California - will split the jackpot, meaning each will get about $38.5 million before taxes.

The winning Mega Millions numbers were 8, 21, 29, 34 and 37, and the Mega Ball number was 15.

Mega Millions tickets are sold in Georgia, Illinois, California, Texas, Washington, Virginia, Ohio, New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Maryland and Massachusetts.
