Forty-seven-year-old Richard Wahl, of Vernon, New Jersey, was introduced Friday during a news conference at lottery headquarters after winning the half-billion March Mega Millions drawing, the largest single jackpot in state history.

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. It was just the fourth time the jackpot has surpassed the $500 million mark, lottery officials have said.

Wahl, originally from MI, now lives in New Jersey.

The jackpot was the biggest ever in New Jersey. "Family, friends, people in need so we are going to try and do some good things with it".

Wahl declined to discuss his family, citing security concerns, but said he told no one about the win until he met with financial advisers - even his mother. It's not only life changing money for me but it's life changing for others.

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.

Wahl was joined Friday by New Jersey Lottery Acting Executive Director John M. White, and Acting State Treasurer Elizabeth Maher Muoio. Gas station owner Ameer Krass received a $30,000 bonus for having sold the ticket. He said he was getting on a flight Friday night, but wouldn't say where he was going. "Everybody looks for a handout". They are also required to participate in a mandatory news conference. He checked the numbers around midnight and initially thought he had won only $1 million until he realized he had the Mega Ball along with the other numbers. Today, 44 states participate along with Washington D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
