Winner of $533M Mega Millions jackpot comes forward

The victor of last month's $553 million Mega Millions jackpot stepped forward Friday to claim his prize in New Jersey.

The sole winning ticket for the March 30 jackpot was sold at a Lukoil station in Riverdale, New Jersey.

"For us, we believe God has a plan", Walh said.

Wahl said he ran upstairs and told his wife, "We get to go on vacation!"

"It's not only life-changing money for me, but It want it to be life-changing money for others: family, friends and people in need", said Wahl.

At New Jersey Lottery headquarters Friday, Wahl was handed the traditional oversized check.

The owner of the store, Ameer Krass, said he had been able to identify Wahl by reviewing surveillance footage. He also urged anyone who might know him to give the victor "the space they deserve".

Richard Wahl, who moved from MI last summer to take a job at a Hillside, New Jersey-based food service industry supplier, said he probably will stop working and use his winnings to help his family and friends.

His winning numbers were 11,28,31, 46 and 59, and the Mega Ball 1. Wall took an extra two days.

The jackpot was the biggest ever in New Jersey. "Everybody looks for a handout". The 47-year-old production manager at a northern New Jersey food services facility took the cash option worth $220.7 million, after taxes. Today, 44 states participate along with Washington D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
