Winning Mega Millions $312 Million Jackpot Ticket Bought In Albany
I posted a blog yesterday about the Mega Millions jackpot, and someone has good fortune this morning. Our friends at WRGB-CBS 6 are reporting that the winning ticket was bought at Coulon's News Center, in Downtown Albany.
That's right folks, we may have a rich neighbor. According to a spokeswoman for the New York Lottery, Carolyn Hapeman, "final sales numbers raised the annuity value of the prize to $319 million, with a cash value of $202.9 million."
In case you're wondering, the winning numbers drawn were 22-24-31-52-54, and the Mega ball number was of 4. The winner has one of two options: They can take the prize over 25 years or receive a cash payout.
The largest jackpot in the history of the game was $390 million, back in March 2007. Maybe the lucky winner is a WGNA listener. So if it's you, are you buying lunch today?
