A Big Lottery Winner In Western New York
While Christmas is still a few days away, there is at least one person who has already gotten a pretty amazing gift! It is a moment that we all hope for when we play the lottery and the dream has come true after this past weekend.
There was a winning lottery ticket sold in the Buffalo area and it is worth around $19,000! Not a bad way to start the big week as Christmas will be here this coming weekend.
The New York State Lottery says the ticket, worth nearly 19-thousand dollars, was sold at a Speedway on Maple Road. A prize of any amount can be claimed up to one year from the date of the drawing.
Don't be upset if it wasn't you that won. There are still a couple of BIG jackpots that are available to win this week. The current Mega Millions jackpot is an estimated $465 with a cash option of $250.4 million. That drawing happens on Tuesday evening.
The Powerball jackpot is sitting at $158 million with a cash option of $85 million! The Powerball draw is Monday, 12/19.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to having that kind of cash. But will it make you happier? The truth is, and I realize I am going to come off as an old timer by mentioning this, the best things in life are free. This week, we will most likely be spending time with friends and family and the memories and love that we will be greeted with lasts longer and has more value than any lottery payout.
