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.

New Jersey lottery officials on Friday revealed the victor of a $533 million Mega Millions jackpot.

Wahl said he recently moved to New Jersey for a job.

Richard Wahl bought only two Mega Millions lottery tickets in his 47 years, and one was a dud.

"For us we believe God has a plan.it's not only life-changing money for me, we want it to be life-changing money for others".

Wahl told reporters he checked the numbers on the ticket with his wife more than a dozen times as they tried to come to terms with the fact that they were New Jersey's newest multimillionaires.

He said he will share the jackpot with "family and friends who struggle every day", and might indulge in his dream of restoring a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette. The store's owner, Ameer Krass, said he believes it's a store regular. He selected easy pick tickets, meaning he let the numbers be chosen randomly. The Mega Ball was 1.
