  • Winner Of $533 Million Mega Millions Jackpot To Claim Prize

The victor of the most valuable lottery ticket ever sold in New Jersey history came forward to claim his $533 million prize Friday.

"We cried a lot together as a family, hugged a lot", Wahl said.

He said he told his wife he was going to check the numbers and joked that "If I win you're going to hear a huge scream, we're leaving on vacation, we're going to retire", he said. 'It's not only life changing money for me, but I want it to be life changing money for family, friends, people in need'.

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.

Joe Kelly dotted Austin between the shoulder blades with a 98 miles per hour fastball, and this time cooler heads didn't prevail. NY posted a four-run first inning that knocked Red Sox starter David Price out of the game after just one inning of work.

Wahl, who moved to Vernon, New Jersey, from MI with his family in late July for a job opportunity, waited two weeks before coming forward to claim the historic prize.

The jackpot was the biggest ever in New Jersey.

He says one of his dreams is to restore a 1963 Corvette, but otherwise described his family as humble and said they wanted to help people.

He said he's not a regular lottery player, but chose to play after talking to a coworker about how they'd retire if they won. He selected easy pick tickets, meaning he let the numbers be chosen randomly. The odds of winning a Mega Millions jackpot is 1 in 303 million.

The ticket was sold at the Lukoil gas station in Riverdale.

He said he saw all the cameras and made a decision to walk out, anxious that he might be recognized since he wasn't ready to come forward yet.

So how does Wahl plan to spend the multi-million dollar prize? In particular, he is thinking of his mother, who lives on a reduced income, and the family of his wife, in Mexico.

After state and federal taxes, he was expected to take home roughly $175 million.
