Winning $9.8 million Lotto ticket sold in Webster
Webster, N.Y. (WHAM) - Check your tickets, folks!
A Quick Pick ticket for Wednesday night's Lotto drawing is worth $9.8 million.
The ticket was sold at Hegedorns on Ridge Road in Webster.
The jackpot-winning ticket has the following numbers: 06-16-24-25-37-38 and a bonus ball of 34.
To win a LOTTO jackpot, players must match the first six numbers drawn.
The last time someone won millions playing the lottery at Hegedorns was about 40 years ago. Thursday, everyone wanted to know who had the winning ticket.
“It's still blowing my mind,” store manager Jon Gonzalez said. “Nine million bucks! It's incredible and to happen here, of all places. It's unbelievable.”
Tyler Viele, the store front manager, was selling tickets Wednesday. “It's crazy to think about $9 million - me?! I sold it? Wow.”
Close to 200 people came through Wednesday.
“Who won? I would love to know. I would love to meet them, see them. Hopefully, it's a regular who comes through every day,” Viele said.
So far, no staff members have claimed the ticket
“Is it a Webster resident? Is it Penfield? Is it somebody local?” Scott Herrmann, a store employee, asked.
But lucky for the store, they will get a cut of the check, which will be good for everyone.
“I’m sure we'd make some nice improvements around the store,” Gonzalez said.
It's not yet clear how much the store will get from selling the winning ticket.
In the meantime, folks are buying tickets, hoping they can cash in on the new luck at Hegedorns.
“If I win the New York lottery, I am moving back to New York - and I can afford the taxes!” one shopper said.
“Little upstate New York! No one really thinks it can be us,” Viele added. “And then, you know, you wake up, $9.8 million winner sold here. It’s crazy to think about.”
Drawings are televised every Wednesday and Saturday at 11:20 p.m. Winning tickets for Lottery draw games at all prize levels may be claimed up to one year from the date of the drawing.
