The New York Lottery left three lucky players numb, stunned and shocked this week after handing them a total of $26.6 million in prize money at its customer service center in Manhattan.
All three winners played the New York Lottery locally with the biggest winner, 42-year-old Kimberly To-Mejia of Staten Island left numb after discovering she is now richer to the tune of $11.6 million.
Normally a regular Powerball or Mega Millions player Kimberly said it was a last minute decision to play the New York Lottery on September 22nd and it has paid off in a big way.
The awesome jackpot prize amounts to about $4.7 million in a one time lump sum payment after required withholdings.
There is a whole lot of things do with $4.7 million in your back hip pocket and KImberly says she is going to use the money to take care of her children and take a long European vacation.
Janet Pruitt from Brooklyn was another big winner pocketing a cool $6,330,400 on a scratch off ticket. What Luck! Janet is most likely still stunned with her win but says she intends to take her family on a visit to Africa.
The Set for Life scratch-off game left 33-year-old Grigoriy Shuba from Brooklyn shell shocked with a win most of us could only dream about. He has taken the $5 million top prize and has yet to decide how to spend his fortune.
