South Bronx gas station sells $1 million winning lottery ticket; ticket is currently unclaimed
A South Bronx gas station sold a second-prize $1 million-winning Powerball ticket earlier this month.
Bigby's Gas Station at 119 Bruckner Boulevard is no stranger to selling winning tickets - but it never sold one that won so much money.
The Mega Millions lottery says a second prize ticket worth $1 million was also sold in Dutchess County.
The store that sold the winning ticket will not get a piece of the earnings. The lottery says a business has to sell a ticket for the grand prize in order to get a $10,000 commission, and that a second-prize tickets doesn't count.
"My store should get something, my boss should get something," said Venu Gopal, the cashier at Bigby's who sold the winning ticket.
No one has come forward to claim the ticket yet. The next drawing for the $333 million jackpot is on Friday night.
