The victor of a $533 million lottery jackpot wasn't sure he could believe his eyes.

Richard Wahl bought the sole winning ticket for the March 30 jackpot at a Lukoil station in Riverdale, New Jersey.

"It was truly wonderful".

Richard Wahl, 47, has been announced as the victor of the Mega Millions lottery. I walked upstairs. I saw my wife ... and said, 'Baby, we get to go on vacation.' She said, 'What are you talking about?

Mega Millions can be played in 44 U.S. states as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

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. It's the fourth largest jackpot in the game's history.

The jackpot was the biggest ever in New Jersey.

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.

He chose to take the jackpot as a lump sum cash payout, which lottery officials said comes out to $324.6 million. It may have been only the second time he bought a ticket.

Wahl declined to discuss his family, citing security concerns, but said he told no one about the win until he met with financial advisers - even his mother. "It's not only life changing money for me, but I want it to be life changing money for family, friends, people in need".
