Friday morning was a big morning for an Ocean County man who became a millionaire thanks to the New Jersey Lottery.

The New Jersey Lottery held their Million Dollar Replay Grand Prize Drawing at Convention Hall in Asbury Park, handing out more than $1.5 million in prizes.

There were actually four winners from Ocean County, from a $10,000 prize that went to a Whiting woman to an Ortley Beach resident scoring $50,000.

But the biggest win of the day went to James Wood of Little Egg Harbor, scoring the million dollar grand prize.

Every year, the New Jersey Lottery holds their Million Dollar Replay Grand Prize Drawing, awarding prizes to players who have submitted non-winning instant tickets throughout the year.
