Now that’s the ticket!
A couple hauled in $10 million on a New York lottery scratch-off ― the biggest payout ever for a scratch-off in the state’s lottery history, the Associated Press reported Tuesday.
The New York State Gaming Commission also tweeted the news:
We might not know the identity of the lucky pair until Thursday, when lottery officials will award an oversized check to the winners in a ceremony.
The couple purchased the ticket at a Stewart’s Shops in Poughkeepsie, the Poughkeepsie Journal reported.
The ticket, from the 50th anniversary instant game “$10,000,000 Cash,” cost $30, AP wrote.
In October, George Coffroad of Virginia also won $10 million on a scratch-off ― the biggest scratch-off payout in that state’s history, Fox5DC reported.
