New York resident Harold Diamond has been crowned as one of the richest men in the ‘city that never sleeps’ as he came forward this Monday to claim his jackpot prize from the November 4th, 2014 Mega Millions US Lottery game.
Harold spent $10 on 10 auto-pick/quick-pick tickets from a Valero gas station in Middletown, N.Y. He bought the lottery tickets on the insistence of his wife, Carol, who made him stop at the gas station after voting because of the terrible weather. The large sign for the giant lottery jackpot offer instantly caused them to finish up their Subway sandwiches and get hold of some tickets.
“I put the ticket in my wallet and forgot about it. I went to play golf the next day and the guys in the clubhouse were talking about the jackpot-winning ticket someone bought at a Valero on Route 302 and I thought, 'Wait a minute – I bought a ticket there last night!'" said Diamond.
Upon returning home, he went through the ticket and checked the winning numbers. The winning numbers were 9-15-24-39-41 and the Mega Ball of 1. His numbers appeared on the second set of purchased tickets and Harold Diamond claims …
"I simply can't envision that kind of money," Diamond said. "It's very hard to fathom. We feel very blessed.”
Harold Diamond, an 80 year old retired school teacher from Wurtsboro, N.Y., has proved yet again that anyone can win the lotto if they are just diligent and sure that their entries are in for the draws. The Diamonds can now very easily afford their namesakes with the giant lottery jackpot winning. The family decided to take the cash payout option in the form of a lump-sum payment of $130,676,438 after taxes. The prize was handed over to the very lucky winners in the form of a check handed to them at the location they purchased the victorious tickets – the Valero station in Middletown.
