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. Players had been vying for the growing jackpot since January.

It's the 10th largest lottery jackpot in USA history.

Richard Wahl, 47, who recently moved from MI to Vernon, N.J., had the five winning numbers and the Mega Ball in the March 30 lottery on a ticket he purchased at a gas station.

It sold at a Lukoil Gas Station mini-mart in the city of Riverdale.

They checked the numbers "at least 15 times", Wahl said, hugging and crying together over their good fortune, ABC 7 reported.

"Our goal is to do a lot of charity work and to do good work for people who need it", Wahl said at a news conference at New Jersey Lottery headquarters in Trenton, New Jersey, as his new team of financial advisers looked on.
