The Bergen County ticket was sold at the Food Mart 4 U in Wallington; Sussex County's ticket was purchased at a 7-Eleven in Sparta; and the Nassau County ticket was sold at Hick's Piccolo Gourmet Delicatessen in Hicksville.

In addition to the $1 million winning tickets, nine tickets for the third-tier prize worth $10,000 were sold in Cumberland, Gloucester, Hudson, Middlesex, Morris, Ocean, Passaic and Somerset County in New jersey.

The next Mega Millions drawing is Tuesday at 11 p.m. If won, officials say it would be the 2nd-largest in the game's history. It's estimated cash value is $628.2 million.
