Friday night's Mega Millions drawing was a very lucky one for a lottery player in New York State.

While no one claimed the grand prize jackpot, the New York Lottery announced that there were three "Big Money" winners from Friday Night's Mega Millions drawing in New York.


One ticket sold at Wegmans on Orchard Park Road in West Seneca matched all five numbers but missed out on the Mega Ball and claimed the $1 million dollar second-place prize.
