MEGA MILLIONSWinner of $533 million Mega Millions jackpot revealed to be Vernon NJ manSHARE:sharetweetshareemail none

The victor of the $533 million Mega Millions jackpot officially came forward.

Wahl, a food production manager from Vernon, New Jersey, said it was only the second time he played Mega Millions, and that he had bought the tickets and a Coke from a Lukoil gas station in Riverdale, ABC 7 reported.

Wahl said he ran upstairs and told his wife, "We get to go on vacation!" "Family, friends, people in need", he said, NorthJersey.com reported.

Richard Wahl joined lottery officials in Trenton Friday to claim his prize. The store's owner, Ameer Krass, said he believes it's a store regular. But he said he didn't try to contact the lucky ticket holder.

"My mom called and said 'I heard someone from New Jersey won the lottery, was it you?'" Wahl said, "and I said, 'Absolutely not".


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

Daniel Mahler, a certified public accountant with Gisler & Mahler in Bloomingdale, said the victor is going to have to get used to saying, "no".

The jackpot was the biggest ever in New Jersey. "Everybody's going to come after him". They are also required to participate in a press conference.

New Jersey was the seventh state to join the consortium nearly three years after the game began in the summer of 1996 as the Big Game.
