Richard Wahl rarely plays Mega Millions - in fact, he's only ever bought a ticket twice in his life, he said.

The New Jersey victor of Mega Millions' $533 million jackpot from March 31 was revealed at state lottery headquarters in Trenton on Friday as 47-year-old Richard Wahl. "It's not only life-changing money for me, but I want it to be life-changing money for others".

"I said 'Baby, we get to go on vacation, ' " Wahl said.

Richard Wahl- who just moved to The Garden State last year from MI last year - will take home a lump sum payout of $324 million, according to NBC New York.

Wahl explained,"For us, we believe god has a plan". And I wasn't ready to share with her yet, so I told her, "Absolutely not, mother"'. The store's owner, Ameer Krass, said he believes it's a store regular.

The winning numbers were: 11, 28, 31, 46, 59 and Mega Ball 1.

He bought the winning ticket at a Lukoil gas station in northern New Jersey and said the numbers were machine picked.

He said he saw all the cameras and made a decision to walk out, anxious that he might be recognized since he wasn't ready to come forward yet.

As Wahl checked his ticket during the Mega Millions drawing on March 30, he saw that the first five "easy pick" numbers matched the ones drawn and he was elated.

Wahl said he chose to take the cash option rather than yearly annuity payments and will end up with about $175 million after taxes, NorthJersey.com reported.

Mega Millions can be played in 44 U.S. states as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. If he could have stayed private, he would have, Wahl said, but New Jersey doesn't allow that. Wahl's win was the fourth-biggest in the game's history.
