WHITEHOUSE STATION, N.J. – It's official: Ten co-workers at an insurance company in New Jersey have in fact won a $216 million Mega Millions jackpot.
A day after the March 3 drawing, the group showed off the winning ticket outside the Chubb Insurance office where they work in Whitehouse Station.
New Jersey Lottery officials say the group came forward on Friday and officially claimed their prize. Lottery officials say New Jersey's newest millionaires chose the cash option, which means they'll split approximately $140 million before the 25 percent federal withholding tax.
The single winning ticket was purchased at a Singin Oil in Toms River. Store owner Taner Cetintas also collects $10,000 for selling the ticket.
The winning numbers were: 26, 32, 35, 43, 52 and the Mega Ball was 10.
