$10.7 million lottery ticket sold in the Bronx, waiting to be claimedPosted: Updated:
A Bronx resident walked into a store at 3401 Jerome Ave. two days ago and left a multimillionaire.
The winner struck gold in winning the New York Lotto Jackpot this week. TS stationery sold the $10.7 million "quick-pick" ticket to the mystery person, who still hasn't come forward.
People say it isn't the first time the store has had a round of luck. Back in 2017, someone won a $100,000 ticket at the store as well.
Lotto officials say the winning ticket holder let the lotto machine randomly pick the numbers.
News 12 met with one person off camera who thinks his brother-in-law may actually be the winner. He told News 12 the only issue is that he thinks the ticket might have been accidentally tossed out.
The winner, whoever they are, has one year to claim the prize in either an annual installment, or as a single, smaller lump sum.
The winning numbers for Tuesday night's New York Lotto drawing were 2, 9, 10, 35, 58 and 59. The bonus number was 26.
