Wahl, a food production manager from Vernon, New Jersey, said it was only the second time he played Mega Millions, and that he had bought the tickets and a Coke from a Lukoil gas station in Riverdale, ABC 7 reported.

"It was truly fantastic".

The odds of winning a mega millions jackpot are 1 in 303 million. "I can tell you, it didn't sink in".

He said he checked the numbers 15 times, kept the ticket in a fireproof safe and wanted to be sure the win was for real before he told other family members.

Wahl, who moved to Vernon, New Jersey, from MI with his family in late July for a job opportunity, waited two weeks before coming forward to claim the historic prize.

"For us, we believe God has a plan", Walh said.

"This guy has to watch himself", Mahler said of New Jersey's big victor.

New Jersey law requires that the victor be identified though some have speculated whether a series of trusts could be constructed to shield a person's identity.

Officials have since presented a check for $30,000 to the owner of the Lukoil for selling the winning ticket.

Wahl said he ran upstairs and told his wife, "We get to go on vacation!"

He described his family as humble and said they wanted to help people.

Mega Millions is played in 44 states plus Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. It's the fourth largest jackpot in the game's history.
