Million Dollar Winner in Dutchess County, New York

The new year has started with one lucky Mega Millions player changing tax brackets as a second-place winning ticket in the Mega Millions drawing from Friday, January 26th has produced a brand new millionaire in the Hudson Valley according to News 10. The second prize 1 million dollar ticket was sold at Verbank Deli (Nour Grocery Corp), located at 3122 Route 82 in Verbank, New York, and had one player match all five numbers drawn Friday, missing the Mega jackpot by one number. It's unclear who purchased the ticket but the Verbank Deli will soon be on the receiving end of a nice bonus as most lottery retailers that sell a winning ticket get a bonus from the lottery after selling a winning ticket. Often it's a percentage of the amount won according to RivRapp.
