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.
