Garfield man wins $292,935 — twice — with Jersey Cash 5 lottery tickets

SHOUT OUT: A Garfield man’s big Jersey Cash 5 win was more than twice as nice.

John Roland said he bought two separate tickets at his usual spot in town — River Drive Bar & Liquor ( see map, above ) — with numbers that matched the five drawn.

They bagged $292,935 each.

He also bought another that matched four numbers, winning an extra $515 and putting his grand total over $586,000.

That gave him two-thirds of the jackpot.

“I found out I had won on Friday the 13th at 6:30 a.m. when I opened the newspaper,” Roland told lottery officials. “I was pinching myself to see if I was still dreaming.”

Why’d he buy two?

“I told the clerk my numbers for the first ticket,” he said. “Then I filled out another bet slip with the same numbers and three other sets of numbers.”

Bingo.

Er: Lotto.

The winning numbers: 11-15-16-20-28
