Now this is way to start a Monday! It looks like someone in the Garden State will be starting the work week as New Jersey's latest millionaire.

Friday's jackpot was worth $162 million and the winning numbers were 7, 9, 24, 41 and 53 with a Mega Ball of 14.

Nobody hit the jackpot for the $162 million but, for the first time in over 6 months, a lucky lottery player from New Jersey matched five numbers for a second place prize of a cool one million, according to NJ.com. The winning ticket was sold in Passaic County and was worth over $1.1 million!.

Tomorrow's jackpot now swells to $177 million with a cash option of $106 million.

We'll find out later today where the winning ticket was purchased in the Garden State. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't come into work the next day if I found out I was holding a million dollar ticket!
